Every Thanksgiving America spends 3.6 Billion dollars. That's a sh*t ton of money. In the spirit of giving, I tried to steal some of this money and share it with people who needed it at home: refugees in Turkey. By the way, did you know that turkey (the animal) is originally from Turkey?
We generated a small amount, which I donated to my elementary school in Eskisehir while I visited home. The principal told me they had 51 Syrian kids and that they will hand this money to kids with their report cards.
