Nov. 6, yearly--Volunteer at your local food-bank day.
Thanksgiving, yearly--Take time to create new, or continue your productive family-tradition holiday moments. I don't know whether it's my personal company brand, or my ministry brand, empathy of parents working on Thanksgiving Day, but I would like to support the effort of stores and non-emergency businesses opening after 6 p.m. on Thanksgiving Day or closed on #ThanksgivingDay. I will highlight stores that have such business hours on Thanksgiving Day--hoping that you will support, too. Try to avoid shopping or similar activities until after 6 p.m. unless a family activity.
December 1--#BuyBlack Movement for Economic Improvement within the African American Culture. Does such actions include Christmas-focused designs and prints? items include with or without black Santa image?
