April George and Kerry Manus started Turkey on the Table to help bring back what their favorite holiday is really all about – being thankful!   They believe in parents wanting to instill values in their children that help them understand and appreciate all of life’s blessings. They believe that “cultivating a grateful heart helps create a happy child!”

Our goal was to turn ‘thankfulness’ into an activity, focusing on the things they have, and not the things they don’t.

Turkey on the Table is both a book and activity that encourages whole families to express and display their gratitude.  Each family can experience the joy of giving, knowing that 10 meals will be provided to someone in need with each “Turkey on the Table” sold. To date, over 435,000 meals have been donated by Turkey on the Table through their partnership with Feeding America!

Go to Turkey on the Table and make a difference for others in need of special meals this holiday season!
