Epic Change has returned with their “Epic Thanks” campaign as the centerpiece of “Tweetsgiving 2010.” Last year, participants were asked to list what they were thankful for. In looking back, I discovered my own post from 2009, and was struck by how many of those same names, faces, and organizations still top my gratitude list in 2010. So I’m going to repeat them- with a special emphasis on #18 – I’m grateful for my family and you, each of my special friends, who give me the drive to get up every day and try to make a difference. The fight to make sure no child goes to bed hungry continues. Thank you for your support!
