Giving Thanks and Resources for Tough Conversations

With Thanksgiving this week, NCDD’s staff are giving thanks to YOU, the members and broader NCDD network, for continuing to support NCDD and our collective work of bringing people together to connect and make decisions.  NCDD is a coalition, and it takes every one of us working together to make it work, and to make our field stronger and more connected. You are why NCDD exists, and you keep us going with your fabulous contributions of time, skills and other gifts, and of course your support of NCDD.

This time of the year is a time for giving thanks, but it is also a time where many people fear the tough conversations that can emerge when family gathers together. Millions of Americans find themselves dreading family gatherings they used to enjoy, especially with the current political climate.

NCDD and our network know there is a better way! There’s a way to come together with those who see the world night-and-day different, and do something more than just bite our tongues and talk about the weather.

As a reminder, NCDD has gathered helpful resources anyone can use to help navigate these potentially tough topics:

Do what it takes to make YOUR family gatherings what they should be: enjoyable.

We hope you have a happy and full Thanksgiving holiday. And, we hope you will share your thanks for NCDD next week with a donation of any amount on Giving Tuesday. On Tuesday, November 27, be sure to join us over on Facebook for our Giving Tuesday fundraiser, where your donations will be matched dollar for dollar by Facebook and PayPal!

NCDD is a small outfit, with just four part-time staff. We rely on our network’s support through membership and donations, to help keep our organization running. It is the time and support of this fabulous network of innovators which keeps NCDD running! Please consider supporting us this Giving Tuesday with a donation over on Facebook. If you don’t use Facebook, you can always make a donation of any amount on our donation page.

Thanks again for making NCDD so vibrant and for all the work that you do!
