Nominate Your Thanksgiving Hero!

Thanksgiving is about more than just turkey.  It is about thanking those that deserve it.  Choosing to do the right thing is sometimes taken for granted.  I grew up in the Midwest where that's what people live by.  Moving to DC in my early 20s, with naive eyes, shocked me a bit.  I realized that some people have an entitlement mentality and they'll do whatever it takes to get themselves ahead of the game.  When I meet people, now, that put others above themselves, I take notice.  I consider these people heroes.  Even something as simple as holding the door open for others, letting a car in front of yours, taking the time to teach younger people, lending a helping hand to a neighbor... these things matter.  People remember these acts of kindness and hopefully they'll pay them forward.

I see heroes in my life everyday... my daughter's nanny, my husband, some of my colleagues, etc.  This year, show your heroes that they are appreciated by nominating them as your Thanksgiving Hero!

La Brea Bakery is giving back this Thanksgiving to some of our heroes. Now is your chance to nominate a hero in your life. If selected, La Brea Bakery will deliver fully catered meals to 5 finalists across the nation on Thanksgiving. Who is your hero? Do you know someone putting others before themselves? Maybe someone who even has to work on Thanksgiving...
