Sharing Thanksgiving

October 5, 2016 by Didi Korcheva

Founded in 2013 ShareThanksgiving is an organization run by volunteers seeking to match Canadian families with immigrants to get together for Thanksgiving dinner and, perhaps, forge new friendships.

The importance of human connections in our nation of immigrants is summed up in the organization’s philosophy: “once you break bread together, and start talking about your kids and their schools, hockey, what it’s like to see snow for the first time, what made a family pack their bags and step onto a plane to Canada, answering their questions: why turkeys, why cranberry sauce, what’s your family’s Canada story…” 

Interested host families can sign up here and newcomers can learn more about Thanksgiving and join here.
