Thanksgiving is a time to be Grateful
Every year on the last Thursday of November, citizens of the United States of America celebrate the holiday of Thanksgiving. Thanksgiving represents the shared feast between Natives and the Pilgrims who settled in the modern state of Massachusetts. While the settlers' sense of gratefulness for the Natives' hospitality did not last, the true essence of the holiday reigns true to this day.
Thanksgiving is a time to be grateful. Well, we should always be grateful, but Thanksgiving is a wonderful reminder of this. Families, friends and acquaintances alike, gather around to celebrate the giving of 'thanks'. In addition to American Football, Feasts and Festivities, we share Gratefulness for all that life blessed us in the past year.
Read below to learn what that means to us.

Introducing: Global Grassroots Social Network!
Ian has been working hard to network with as many social entrepreneurs as possible these past few months. During this time, he identified a lack of connectivity between Social Impact Founders. To Ian, it seems as though there are many people who are combatting today's societal issues, and are going about it alone. This is a problem!
There is power in numbers, and if we are working alone, we will not go far. To combat this issue, we at Global Grassroots Consulting are working to develop a network of Social Entrepreneurs. This network welcomes Founders, Leaders and Employees in the Social Impact space, as well as anyone who wants to use their skills for good. Our Social Network will provide social impact folk with a platform to ask social enterprise related questions, request help, network, establish key partnerships and more!
As the Global Grassroots Social Network is in the ideation phase, we will use the readily available resource that is LinkedIn, to start.
Interested in joining our Global Grassroots Social Network group on LinkedIn? Contact Ian using the button below, to be added to the group!
I appreciate you following along and I hope that you found value in reading this. Please feel free to reach out with any questions, comments, or feedback that you may have.
After all, a community is nothing without effective communication.
Have a safe and happy Thanksgiving!
