Put the "give" in Thanksgiving

National Tie One On Day™ celebrates the humble apron
and the spirit of women of earlier generations.

Participation in National Tie One On Day is simple -
on the day before Thanksgiving,
pause in the preparation of your own meal,
wrap a loaf of bread or other baked good in an apron,
tuck a prayer or note of encouragement in the pocket,
and deliver the wrapped bundle
to someone in need.

National Tie One on Day™ is the brainchild of
and is now in its third year.

According to EllynAnne,
no matter which way you turn out of your own front door,
someone who is deserving of a hug is very close by.
“Women clad in aprons have traditionally prepared
the Thanksgiving meal,” says EllynAnne,
“and it is within our historical linkage to share our bounty.”
