A few weeks ago, I wrote a blog post about my first time making chicken soup. Now that Thanksgiving is coming up I’m thinking about making my first Turkey. Once again – I’ve never made a Turkey before but I think I’m ready!!
I’m also ready for the Turkey Challenge which is not about making turkey but more about doing something for a good cause.
HERE’S IT HOW IT WORKS:
This Thanksgiving, really give thanks by doing the Fast Turkey Challenge. You agree to fast, by skipping lunch on Friday October 7th and donating your lunch money to the homeless who can’t afford to eat. You also agree to Challenge your friends to do the same, or they have to buy you lunch at your favourite restaurant instead.
All funds raised will go to Good Shepherd Ministries to help feed the homeless. At Thanksgiving they work tirelessly to provide a full Thanksgiving meal to those who can’t afford to eat. In just the las few years, Good Shepherd Centre has seen more than a 50% increase in the number of meals and snacks served each day. Today they are Toronto’s largest meal program, serving more than 1300 meals a day.
SIGN UP NOW & FAST AT LUNCH ON OCT. 7TH! For more info and details please go to www.fastturkey.ca
Feel free to take a peek at this video too:
I will happily support this cause for several reasons:
a) My dad (who sadly passed away last year) was a volunteer at the Good Shepherd in Ottawa and I know this would be meaningful to him if I supported this campaign
b) I’ve been trying to be more charitable and try to give donations on a regular basis. (every bit helps, right?)
c) I like the campaign!! It’s simple and effective.

Happy Turkey Challenge everyone and have a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend too.
Disclosure: I was compensated for this blog post however all opinions are my own and I promise that I will be making a donation!
