Thanksgiving Gift

In this Thanksgiving season, have you shown your gratitude for the gifts you've been given by God, and, in turn, gave something to another in need?

“The times talk to us of so much poverty in the world and this is a scandal. Poverty in the world is a scandal. In a world where there is so much wealth, so many resources to feed everyone, it is unfathomable that there are so many hungry children, that there are so many children without an education, so many poor persons...All of us today must think about how we can become a little poorer.”
~Pope Francis, Meeting with Students of Jesuit Schools—Q&A, June 7, 2013

I would suggest the House of Bread and Peace homeless shelter for women and children in Evansville, IN or Catholic Charities of Evansville (or your local charity organization).
