Thanksgiving Day is almost upon usâ€”families and friends across the country will gather to feast, relax and reminisce. It is the perfect time of year to share all of the things for which Luminari is grateful.
Itâ€™s all about the food
With the introduction of our newest program, Camp Delicious! coming summer 2014, it seemed only appropriate to indulge in the delectable and the delicious. Food has the universal ability to bring people together, create lasting memories and provide traditions for future generations. At Luminari, we believe inspiration and creativity begin at the dining room table â€“ so in the spirit of the season, we raise our collective forks in tribute to family and gratitude. For some great tips on nutrition and food prep, follow our own celebrity foodie, Leslie Bonci on twitter (https://twitter.com/lesliebonci).
â€¦And more fun
For some, Thanksgiving Day is all about football, parades and the beginning of the holiday shopping season. Luminari would like to establish a new tradition, and we need your help. We are looking for photos of inspiration (it can be a multi-generation family photo, or a picture of a single leaf left on your favorite tree â€“ just remember we are looking for whatever inspires you). Between now and December 31, upload your photo to our facebook page and please include the (hashtag) #InspireMe along with your name, city and a short caption or description of your inspiration. We will publish an album of all inspirational photos in our January issue of LUMOS! So grab your camera phone and get snapping.
Finally, thank you for your continued interest and support for Luminari. We extend our heartfelt gratitude to our friends and volunteers, partners and directors, sponsors and donors for making 2013 an outstanding year for our organization.
Hilda Pang Fu, President, Luminari
