Make Thursday's Celebration Meaningful
Will you include the people of Darfur in your Thanksgiving celebration?
Thanksgiving is a very special day for me and my family. We use the time to reflect on all our blessings, appreciate being together, and reach out to those who are less fortunate.
So it probably comes as no surprise that we will be including the people of Darfur in our Thanksgiving celebration this Thursday.
Will you join me in devoting a few minutes of your Thanksgiving celebration to help the people of Darfur?
All you have to do is take a moment to share the story of the people of Darfur and hand out a simple petition for your guests to sign.
You'll start by spending a few moments explaining the crisis to your guests (you can download a short overview of the situation to read from if you'd like) and then pass around a printed petition to President Bush and U.N. Secretary-General Ban for your guests to sign.
I hope you'll join me and my family in taking advantage of this opportunity for reflection, thankfulness, and togetherness to help raise awareness about the urgency of the situation in Darfur.
I'd be remiss if I didn't take this chance to thank you for your commitment to the cause. And I'm not alone. The House of Representatives voted unanimously a few weeks ago to commend the work that Darfur activists worldwide have done to raise awareness of the genocide.
Thank you again for all of your hard work.
Happy Thanksgiving from all of us at the Save Darfur Coalition.
