5 Fun Ways to Give Thanks this Season

scrabble saying be thankful

November is a month to reflect on everything we’re thankful for and to give back to the community.

We’d like to take a moment to express our gratitude for our inspiring patients, for our loyal blog readers, and those who keep the conversation lively on our Facebook page! Because of you, we are able to help so many women and touch lives.

As we enter a season that celebrates abundance, it’s important to remember those less fortunate.

In this post, we’re sharing 5 ways to give thanks this season (and fun doing it)!

Here are a few fun ways to give back this holiday season:

1. Make gifts instead of buying them.

The holiday season is a great time for arts and crafts. When we make gifts with our hands, something magical happens.  We get to share a part of ourselves with someone else and reflect on what we’re thankful for.

2. Give “shout-outs” on social media.

Why not spread the love on social media to make a positive impact on your followers? Share something you’re thankful for on your Facebook page, make a gratitude meme go viral—or even make your own personalized You Tube videos. Send them to friends and family members sharing why you’re so blessed to have them in your life. If you’re looking for inspiration, check out our Facebook page.

3. Do something kind for a stranger.

Add a new twist to the traditional ‘dropping change in a bucket’ donation. Try leaving a dollar with a quote attached on someone’s car or drop it in their shopping cart when they’re not looking. When it comes to giving, being silly (and a bit radical) can make giving—and receiving—both exciting and fun.

4. Donate to charity

Instead of exchanging gifts, consider donating to a charity you are passionate about in someone’s honor. Nothing inspires thankfulness like giving to others. Komen Lowcountry is one of our favorites.

5. Share compliments—lots of them.

Kind words can mean more to someone than you may know. The holidays can be a struggle for many people for various reasons. Whether it be a compliment to a stranger, acquaintance, coworker, or a loved one, spreading nice words can truly make a difference in someone’s day.
