National Tie One on Day- November 25th

That GOT your attention pretty quick didn't it?
HA- this is serious (and NON-alcoholic, sorry folks! LOL). Please read on and pledge to participate!

“Women clad in aprons have traditionally prepared the Thanksgiving meal, and it is within our historical linkage to share our bounty.” EllynAnne Geisel

Four years ago, EllynAnne noticed that Thanksgiving was talked about in terms more commonly associated with stress, than joy. She remembered her mother’s absolute love of Thanksgiving, as a day more than anything else of sharing and gratefulness. So she created National Tie One On Day™ as an annual opportunity to return the “give” to Thanksgiving by sharing our good fortune with someone in need of a kind gesture.

National Tie One On Day™ has nothing to do with purchasing anything special or even driving!

Participation is simple. On the day before Thanksgiving, November 25th this year, pause in the preparation of your own meal, wrap a loaf of bread or other baked good in an apron, tuck a prayer or note of encouragement in the pocket, and tie one on…an apron, of course! and deliver the wrapped bundle to someone without your bounty… a neighbor, friend or family member in need of physical or spiritual sustenance, a bit of recognition or just a kind word. 

Isn't this just a SUPER idea? AND as the kiddos are usually out of school- what a way to get THEM involved, in the cooking, wrapping, making the note AND delivering of said baked goods!

EllynAnne says that no matter which direction you walk out of your own front door, someone deserving of a gesture of kindness is close by.

National Tie One On Day™ is a win-win, for the participant and the receiver. By embracing National Tie One On Day™, you will make someone else’s day brighter.

PS- if EllynAnne sounds familiar it's because you've seen her wonderful bookThe Apron Book advertised- it's a charming book full of love and aprons of course, but also lots of nostalgia and love for MOM and GRANDMA. Check it out!
