10 Things To Be Thankful For

What We're Thankful For
As families across the United States gather around the table for Thanksgiving, we wanted to share 10 things that we are thankful for:

  1. 1. We are thankful for each and every child who offers something new and unique to our planet.
  2. 2. We are thankful for the kind people who deliver nutritious meals to those who are alone and ill – all year long – not just on Thanksgiving day.
  3. 3. We are thankful for the pilots who work over the holidays to safely deliver children for a visit with grandma.
  4. 4. We are thankful for the average, normal, busy and hard-working people who have given up many of the comforts of life, defied all odds, and have dedicated their lives to helping innocent children everywhere.
  5. 5. We are thankful for the smiles and support of our families.
  6. 6. We are thankful for young women like Chaeli Mycroft and Sarah Cronk who inspire us to embrace a child’s unique abilities.
  7. 7. We are thankful for the change of the seasons and all the beautiful creations that surround us each day, no matter where you are in the world.
  8. 8. We are thankful to be able to work for an organization that is truly making a difference for children around the world.
  9. 9. We are thankful for our 100 Honorees who wake up every day to show children that they are not alone.
  10. 10. Most of all, we are thankful for you — a vital member of our global World of Children family — who supports our Honorees’ work for children all year long.

Thank you for standing with us.

Wishing you a very Happy Thanksgiving,


World of Children Team
