In two days time, many of us in the United States will be sitting down to a Thanksgiving feast. Most of us will be asked to reflect upon what we're most thankful for. As you ponder where your gratitude is going this year, take time out to think about those less fortunate. 

It doesn't take much to give to a family in need. In just five minutes you could gift a woman a world a way with a pump that will give her back three hours a day in collecting water. In just five minutes, you could feed a child suffering malnutrition. One week from today, on #GivingTuesday, we're asking everyone to take five minutes to give back. So take this week and think about it. Then tweet @Heifer to tell us what you gave for #GivingTuesday.
