They give thanks every day!

I hope you’re having a terrific Thanksgiving week!

Belarus doesn't celebrate our Thanksgiving Day, but there are some folks there who give thanks for you every day:

the homeless and poor — people who receive a nutritious daily meal because friends of New Thing are so generous.

When people ask me about our work with homeless people in Belarus, I send them a few photos.

I think it’s probably appropriate, during this Thanksgiving week, to show you what I show them.

Some of these photos, you may have seen before.

But for hungry people on the streets of Minsk, the message is fresh and new every day.

May you enjoy Thanksgiving Day and all its bounty!

And special thanks to everyone who gives to help people in a place most Americans never think about.

Much love,

Doug Brendel
