My Thoughts:

I think this article is awesome because it describes several ideas and activities that you and your family can do to help out in your community. Personally, i dont have a very functional family but in my opinion if more families focused on working TOGETHER and helping others that they will build a stronger bond seeing other people being so thankful for the little things and that will help people realize what they have and that they need to be thankful.
