What We’re Thankful For

We're #thankful for so much - and #gratitude and #Thanksgiving can be shared globally! Click To Tweet

We’re thankful at GiftStarter.  It’s almost Thanksgiving in the U.S. again – that one day a year that occurs every fourth Thursday in November where Americans dedicate an entire day to focusing on the things which they are most thankful for – like family, friends, and pie. (Mmm. Pie.)

While we definitely think Thanksgiving Day is awesome (read: pie), we also wanted to take a second to reflect upon this awesome truth: gratitude is global. And we’re so thankful that GiftStarter is part of a global community, where gratitude and thanksgiving are things we can share with everyone–no matter where you live, or what day of the year it is.

In fact, our brilliant product engineer, Valentine, lives in Ukraine. And while Valentine might not be celebrating Thanksgiving this Thursday around a roast turkey and a cantankerous Uncle Ned, he did send us some really interesting reads on the Ukrainian holiday most closely resembling the American Thanksgiving, called Forgiveness Day, which is celebrated on the last Sunday before Lent.

The fact that gratitude is global means that we can give thanks any time of the year with all our people, our customers, and you – all over the world.
