Last week I told you about La Brea Bakery’s Thanksgiving promotion where users will be encouraged to nominate their “Thanksgiving Hero”: people they know and love who regularly work on Thanksgiving serving others (such as firefighters, police, waiters, etc.). La Brea Bakery will deliver fully catered meals to 5 finalists across the nation on Thanksgiving.
There is another hero that people may not think of right away. That hero is the person is the one behind the phone at the National Suicide Prevention Hotline. We all know the holidays can not be the “most wonderful time of year” and it can be difficult to cope. Knowing that there are people that take the time away from their families during the holidays to help others cope is the in my eyes, the very definition of a Thanksgiving Hero.
What makes my friend Cristi amazing is she is such a huge advocate for mental health. Both of her own and others. Whether it’s participating in the Out of the Darkness Walk or being a listening ear, Cristi and others like her are rockstars.
Now, I know for a fact that Cristi herself isn’t working on Thanksgiving Day, but someone like her is. Someone is answering hotline phones and helping others cope. And making a difference. So my nomination is for La Brea Bakery to deliver a catered meal to one of the Washington State Chapter offices of the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention.
If you have a Thanksgiving Hero in your life, the deadline to nominate your hero is November 15th.
