This is a time for reflecting and remembering what you are grateful for.


Why not try one of these ideas out on your participants or teams to get the appreciation flowing?

  1. Gratitude Dinner: Organize a special Thanksgiving dinner where each guest takes turns expressing what they are thankful for. This can be a heartwarming and meaningful way to bring people together and create a positive atmosphere.

  2. Volunteer Appreciation: Host an event to thank and celebrate the volunteers in your community who have selflessly contributed their time and efforts throughout the year. Acknowledge their contributions and let them know how much they are valued.

  3. Thankful Notes Wall: Set up a ""Thankful Notes Wall"" at a local community center or public space. Provide colorful sticky notes and pens, encouraging people to write down what they are thankful for and stick them on the wall. This interactive display will showcase the collective gratitude of the community.

  4. Gratitude Jar: Create a gratitude jar or a large container and place it in a central location. Encourage everyone to write down what they are thankful for on small pieces of paper and drop them into the jar throughout the Thanksgiving season. On Thanksgiving Day, read some of these notes aloud to share the gratitude with all participants.

  5. Grateful Giving: Instead of focusing solely on feasting, organize a ""Grateful Giving"" event where attendees bring non-perishable food items, warm clothing, or other necessities for those in need. After the event, donate the collected items to local shelters or food banks to spread the spirit of gratitude and giving.


Remember, the key to a successful Thanksgiving event is to create an atmosphere of appreciation and connection, where people can reflect on the positive aspects of their lives and the impact they have on others.
