Our gifts are life's gravy.

We can all find gifts in our lives we are grateful to have. As we move into the Holiday Season, life can get pretty stressful. Today is a good time to reflect and take stock of the best things life has to offer that fill us up like an incredible Thanksgiving dinner.

(By the way, the average American will consume 2,500 to 3,000 calories at that one meal. And Americans will eat over 1.4 billion pounds of turkey in one day.)

The DakotAbilities family is huge. It includes the people we serve, their families and friends, our donors, the staff, and our advocates. We are thankful for every one of you!

We can all use a kid-friendly joke that makes us roll our eyes and maybe even groan out loud.

Honoring all staff!

This year we skipped the traditional pumpkin pie deliveries and opted for muffins for all of our residential and center employees.

The inside of the accompanying card simply says, "We're muffin without you!"


Personal Independence is One Click Away

If you are like most people, you will spend Thanksgiving Day with people, then score some Black Friday deals before going to the Parade of Lights. You will have more shopping to do over the weekend then buddy up to a computer and take advantage of sales on Cyber Monday. Whew.

Then comes Tuesday. The day of SDGives. Your day to do good by making a donation to DakotAbilities. Your donation will directly go toward providing personal spaces (private bedroom and bathroom) for every person who receives services at DakotAbilities. You can wait until Tuesday to make a difference in someone's life or you can have your Doing Good Dessert before the rest of the craziness begins by clicking on the image or here.

We guarantee it will make you feel satisfied. Like completing an incredible Thanksgiving dinner.


Happy Thanksgiving to YOU!
