An American Tradition- 2

Feed those less fortunate

Feed those less fortunate
A Montgomery County, Pennsylvania mystery man and a team of volunteers spent the weekend before Thanksgiving 2016 dropping off bags of groceries to feed 150 needy families. The anonymous donor told Fox 29 News, “We started the first year in 2008 with 30 families….this year we're at 150 families, 3,000 pounds of turkey, and $22,000 worth of groceries.”

Eat a one-of-a-kind feast — for $50,000

Eat a one-of-a-kind feast — for $50,000
New York City steakhouse Old Homestead is hosting a Thanksgiving dinner this year to the tune of $50,000 per person. Yes, you read that right. 

What do you get for that kind of scratch? For starters, a 20-pound free-range turkey basted in extra-virgin olive oil from Italy, a $465-per-pound piece of Wagyu beef imported from Japan, $54-per-pound of Foie gras, sweet potatoes garnished with $1,600-per-ounce caviar, and pumpkin ice cream made with $4,200 eggnog sauce. 

Still, that's not close to 50k. Purchasers of this holiday experience also receive four tickets to an upcoming Giants game (valued at $10,000); a night at the Waldorf with room service and breakfast in bed (valued at $5,000); limousine transportation while in NYC (around $2,000); and a Fifth Avenue shopping spree (totaling $7,500). You'll also be able to take a horse-drawn carriage ride through Central Park.

We don't know who will take the 100-year-old restaurant up on this ostentatious offer, but we can't wait to find out! (Source)

Pet a turkey

Pet a turkey
Leon the turkey, who lives at the Harvest Home Animal Sanctuary in Stockton, California, is best described as a dog in a bird's body — he loves kisses, hugs and belly rubs. 

Leon was at a shelter before being taken in by Harvest Home. He adores affection and likes being stroked and carried, leading people to wonder whether he was ever someone's pet. This lucky bird has been granted a forever home at the sanctuary and potentially a job as a therapy turkey.
