I am proud to let you know about La Brea Bakery’s contest. Nominate a person that you love who regularly works on Thanksgiving serving others (such as firefighters, police, waiters, bakers etc.). La Brea Bakery will deliver fully catered meals to 5 finalists across the nation on Thanksgiving. Submissions close Nov 15th 2015.
Thanksgiving is a very traditional time of year and one of my most favorite holidays. There are no special isles filled with candies and gifts and craziness that you are expected to buy. . . you just need a bit of food and some people that you care about and you have Thanksgiving. I am a vegetarian and I don’t eat Turkey so even some sweets potatoes, some stuffing and some La Brea Bread will do to make a meal worth feeling blessed about. It could mean that the fancy dishes come out and a formal dinner is held. Or, it doesn’t have to be fancy and it could be paper plates and football games and relaxing casually with family and friends. It could mean running a Turkey Trot, playing at the park or volunteering at a soup kitchen. The point is that we celebrate the things that we are thankful for and hope to spend the day with people we love and are grateful to have in our lives.
I have worked many Holidays including Thanksgiving. I had a social media job last year that required me to tweet and interact all day with followers of a large, national company. My husband has worked many Thanksgivings as well and his family works in the airline industry and they have Thanksgiving on a completely different day since they all work on the actual holiday.
I have an aunt and a brother in law who are nurses. One will be working in a nursing home this Thanksgiving and the other will be working in the Emergency room hoping people don’t have accidents while deep frying their birds!
I have a lot of people that I will be nominating as my #ThanksgivingHero this year.
Who will you be nominating as your Thanksgiving Hero?

I am nominating my brother in law Nathan who works so hard everyday to take care of his family and others as a SWAT nurse and at Mayo Clinic. He is a great nurse and deserves a catered meal for him, his wife (my sister) and their 3 young children. He has spent every holiday during his marriage in the hospital!

I think this is absolutely wonderful. The thing is, there are SOOOO many people who deserve to be nominated,
Between a retail job and working at the hospital, I worked a lot of Thanksgivings and holidays in general. We always made up for it before or later and got the family time in.
There are so many people who are a Thanksgiving Hero. Having to work on the holiday is no fun but family does understand.
I have a niece and nephew that will both have to work on Thanksgiving. Which is really sad because I Don’t see why their offices even need to be open. They aren’t retail and they aren’t medical or emergency people.
My sister had to work last year, and she is a nurse. She is my Thanksgiving day Hero!
That is a fabulous contest! I love the concept of nominating a Thanksgiving Hero! 🙂

This is a great contest. I have several friends and family members who are true heroes and always end up working on Thanksgiving so that others like myself can enjoy the time with loved ones.
I will be nominating my husband because he is a fabulous daddy and a fabulous teacher.
Great post and a great reminder about what Thanksgiving is really all about. It is all about being grateful and this is a great contest.
This is wonderful. My brother-in-law is a firefighter so he celebrates Thanksgiving on different days around the holiday. I’d love to nominate him.
This is a great idea. I don’t know who I would nominate yet.
You should! Then he may get a catered dinner for him and his crew 🙂
Thanks Elizabeth, I agree.
Find me on facebook and ask me to vote for him!
I’d have to discuss with my family who we would nominate but a few people come to mind. It’s a great idea and a good reminder about the purpose of Thanksgiving.
I love La Brea Bakery, it’s one of my fave things about living in LA. I buy their bread every week. Great Thanksgiving contest to recognize every day people making a difference, too.
I think this is really nice of this company! So many people work hard to selflessly help others so it is nice that someone is thinking of them.
This is such a great contest. We often forget that there are a lot of people working hard on these very special holidays. I don’t know who I would nominate but I’m going to share this .
I love this idea! Such a great way to give thanks to the hero who’s made a difference in someones life! I bet this contest will be a huge success 🙂
There are so many people who deserves to be nominated to where I could never just pick one person. Great contest!
I could make an entire Thanksgiving dinner happily from a loaf of bread. But about the Thanksgiving hero…that is such an awesome thing. Great nomination!
