Mercy Corps Urges Americans to Put the 'Giving' Back Into Thanksgiving
Date:11/18/2009

s to those in need is the best way to show gratitude for the blessings we have," said Kathryn Larnell, a Mercy Corps donor from Phoenix. "If I can spend $10 on cranberry sauce, I know I can spend $10 to help feed a family."

As part of this Thanksgiving challenge, Mercy Corps is launching an easy online tool that allows families and groups of friends to make donations together. To learn more about how to put the "giving" back into Thanksgiving visit www.mercycorps.org/thanksgiving.

The Thanksgiving challenge is part of Mercy Corps' One Table campaign. One Table aims to influence government policy, raise awareness and fund programs that support women's roles in strengthening food security in the developing world. The campaign is inspired by Mercy Corps' belief that investing in women is one of the smartest ways to end hunger. For more information, visit http://onetable.mercycorps.org.

Driven by local needs and market conditions, our programs provide communities with the tools and support they need to transform their own lives. Our worldwide team of 3,700 professionals is improving the lives of 16.7 million people in more than 40 countries. For more information, see www.mercycorps.org.
