This year, I am spending my Thanksgiving in Ethiopia, with our “TOMS Ethiopia family.” Sure, I’m missing turkey and Cowboys football, but the lentils and chickpea will do just fine :)
Being back here is such a blessing and it reminds me how incredibly thankful I am for the work we are doing here – there are some special projects we have in motion that give me such joy. Celebrating Thanksgiving here is going to be really special…
I am also endlessly thankful for my TOMS family - whether you have been a part of our movement for one day, or since day one, I am thankful that you’ve decided to use your talent, time, and energy to have a real impact on the world. You are truly making your time on this planet count, and it is appreciated by more people than you can imagine. Thank you for inspiring me.
I hope all of you have a great Thanksgiving with your families and with your friends. Take this time to be together and celebrate each other! Read more
I’m so excited to share with you all that I was a guest on The Ellen Show for the first time today and it was a blast! (I can’t tell you if I danced or not — you’ll have to tune in to see!) Ellen DeGeneres has such an amazing rapport with her audience, and watching the way the crowd responded to the story of TOMS and our movement was really something special. It was one of the most fun interviews I’ve ever been a part of and I hope it ultimately leads to more people hearing about TOMS and helping people in need.
It would mean the world to me if you watched the show, which airs tomorrow, or record it if you can. So please check your local listings, and let me know what you think!
