Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving! As everyone prepares to gather with friends and family this week, I wanted to take a moment to share how very thankful I am for all that I have received in my life and celebrate this season of giving.

One of the greatest blessings in my life, and the one for which I am most thankful, has been my ability to help those in need. My family and I benefitted so much from the help and compassion of others when we moved to America, and I try to offer that same help whenever I can, to those in need.

Thanksgiving is the perfect time to remember those that may need assistance and instill that sense of giving in not only your family but in your employees as well. At Edible Arrangements®, we offer several ways for our employees to help those in our community, including a partnership with Junior Achievement to offer guidance to local school children. Through not only Edible® but through our family foundation, I have always strived to help as many people as possible who may need it, and hope that those who have chosen to work with me do the same.

Before you dig into that turkey, I hope you will take a moment to reflect and appreciate all that you have to be thankful for, and I hope that you resolve to help someone in need this holiday season. I hope you all have a blessed and wonderful Thanksgiving!
