How to make place cards into a Thanksgiving tree:
Cut leaves out of red, yellow and orange construction paper and write each guest’s name on one side to make place cards.
Place the leaf place cards at each plate. Ask guests to write something they are thankful for on the back. Share what you wrote during dinner. After dinner past them on a tree made of twigs or a tree drawn on a larger piece of construction paper.
I came up with this idea this year but didn’t have time to implement it. Mental note for next Thanksgiving!
When I started making Snowboarder Lids I knew I wanted to partner up with a charity. And I knew I wanted the charity to work with autism. When I found Surfers Healing my heart said they were the ones I wanted. Surfers Healing feels a bit grassroots. I feel like the dollars we donate don’t get lost in overhead costs. I actually KNOW that we paid for 5 kids to go to free surf camp. And I know parents were touched deeply by the day. (See real stories from my friends here and here.)
Last year when we started making Fedorables. I met this lovely lady and things quickly fell into place to directly help families going through adoption. Starting with sweet Henry. (See how we were involved here.) I can’t even begin to tell you how much I love this little boy whom I have never met. But I do. And I’m proud to have been involved (in a tiny way) with his life.
Now we have the Bohemian Lid, and things are just about finished. And I’ve go nothing. Nothing is on strongly on my heart… yet. Friends have made suggestions and while all the charities are great, I just haven’t been moved like I have for the others.
So I’m waiting.
What’s on your heart?
