This year I am hosting my first thanksgiving dinner. it isn't going to be on thanksgiving because I know that people want to be with their families, I am probably going to have it the weekend before. I am going to invite vegetarian friends for a huge vegetarian feast. I have been veg for 15 years now and I have NEVER had a vegetarian thanksgiving- I am always just nibbling on side dishes while everyone else chows down.
I want to make little gifts for my friends to take home with them. I am asking everyone for a 10 dollar donation for a special thanksgiving surprise. The surprise is going to be the adoption of turkeys. (http://www.adoptaturkey.org/
). For 20 dollars you can sponsor a turkey that will live out the rest of its life at farm sanctuary. I think everyone will be really stoked about it. There will probably be about 10-12 people in attendance so thats 100-120 dollars to donate. When the turkey is sponsored they send you a picture of the turkey and a little bit about its history. So we will adopt 5 or 6 turkeys. I am going to make copies of the pictures for everyone.
I want to have a little gift bag for everyone to take home with the turkey pictures and a few crafted items for everyone. I would love suggestions about what I could include in the gift bags.
