It's Thanksgiving week. And in the spirit of gratefulness, I've been thinking a lot about the unsung heroes in each of our lives. Of course, we thank the big people right? The teachers, the assistants at work, the doctors. But this week? I really want to focus on the people that I know I consistently forget to thank. What do I mean? How often do we REALLY say thank you to the person checking us out at the grocery store? Or to the Starbucks barista that always gets our drink order right? Or in my case the parents that volunteer at my schools' gate each and every morning? Or the custodian who cleans my classroom each evening after I've gone home to put my feet up? My goal this week? Is to say thank you to ten different people EACH day. A simple thank you. How hard can it be?
This week Molly and I are teaming up with an amazing brand that is doing something very special this holiday season. Threads 4 Thought is my favorite type of company…..not only are their clothes made ethically and sustainably, but they're ADORABLE. This plaid poncho? Could easily have been from my favorite hip boutique here in LA. I love that I know it was made with thought and consideration every step of the way.
And of course, what does a company like Threads 4 Thought do over the holidays? They use their influence to give back to others. So while I love a Black Friday Sale as much as the next girl, I'm a million times more inspired by what they are doing this holiday season. They're asking US to thank the people we know who make a difference each and every day. You can read all about it below……..and I hope that Threads 4 Thought's contest inspires you like it did me.

Now, one more thing. Molly and I are teaming up to do more than host our link up. We are teaming up to share brands that we love……brands that give back. Each week we’ll be collaborating with one of our favorite brands to share the cause they support, and their amazing products.
This week we are teaming up with Threads 4 Thought. Why do we love Threads 4 Thought? Because they are LITERALLY changing the fashion industry with every piece they create (and every piece we buy). Threads 4 Thought is a full lifestyle brand comprised of adorable pieces that are produced responsibly & support sustainable initiatives. They are a certified B Corporation, which means that they are making every effort to use business as a force for good. Their goal? To create pieces that humans love and to help the planet at the same time. And their factories in China, Kenya and India? Pay living wages, and treat employees with respect and dignity.
Just in case you don't ALREADY love Threads 4 Thought…….they're launching an amazing Give Thanks Campaign over the holidays………you can enter with a video or picture post on Instagram (using the hashtag) or fill out the entry form HERE.
