  • I'm thankful for Thanksgiving quizzes.

    Posted on 11/21/2010 by Lisa

    The most important parts of Thanksgiving are eating dinner and feeling grateful, and we've got quizzes to prepare you for both.

    Before you load up your plate on Thursday, take the Which Thanksgiving Food Are You? quiz. It just told me I'm cranberry sauce.

    Do you appreciate all the good things in your life... or do you tend to take them for granted? The How Grateful Are You? quiz will help you figure it out. I just took it and got:

    I guess that's accurate, because right now I'm grateful for my "so grateful" badge. Happy Thanksgiving week, everybody!

  • Give Back This Thanksgiving!

    'Tis The Season To Give Back!

    'Tis the season to give back! With Thanksgiving just around the corner and the holiday season not far behind, it's the perfect time to remember all the things you are thankful for, and to consider helping those who are less fortunate. Plus, while you're in the holiday spirit, why not remember the spirit of the HALO Awards too?? Keep the HALO Effect going all year round!

    Let your HALO shine by donating, volunteering, or simply brightening someone's day this holiday season. Start small: help your mom prepare a fantastic turkey dinner on Thanksgiving day, give your grandmother a call to let her know you're thinking of her, or give out holiday cards to all of your friends to tell them how much they mean to you. But if you're looking to make a bit of a bigger impact, here are some organizations that could really use your help this holiday:

    The Salvation Army
    Ever noticed the men and women who bundle up and stand out in the cold around Christmas time, ringing bells and holding red buckets full of donations? These people are dedicated volunteers for the Salvation Army, a charitable organization that has been helping those who are poor or homeless for many years. But you don't have to ring a bell to help them out! Consider cleaning out your closet and donating any clothes you don't wear anymore to someone who really needs them. The Salvation Army can make sure your donations find a good home. Even Austin Mahone, our favorite new heartthrob, is getting involved�he'll be headlining Salvation Army's "Rock the Red Kettle" concert this year!

    The Boys & Girls Clubs of America
    This national youth organization has chapters all over the United States that provide after-school programs for countless boys and girls. These programs focus on education, leadership, the arts, sports, and more. You can get involved by volunteering at a club in your area, or even starting a club of your own! Check out their website to find the program nearest you and lend a helping hand.

    The YMCA
    The YMCA is one of America's oldest non-profit organizations, with millions of beneficiaries and numerous community centers all over the world. They offer programs for kids and adults alike that focus on youth development, healthy living and social responsibility with a strong focus on community. If you're interested in being involved, you can donate to the Y, volunteer at a center, or even join a YMCA community near you! It's a great way to give back!

    This year, while you're enjoying the wonderful days of delicious Thanksgiving leftovers, holiday decorating and those first few glimpses of snow, keep these organizations in mind and consider making someone else's holiday season a little more special.
