TIE ONE ON DAY 2017 Celebrates 12 Years of Kindness!

The more who participate, the more who receive acts of kindness

 

Twelve years ago on Thanksgiving eve, I wrapped a baked good in an apron with a handwritten note of sympathy tucked in, and delivered it to a neighbor experiencing more heartache than should ever be. Her response of delight and warmth was unexpected and very touching.

In offering a small gesture of recognition to her family’s situation, I was stunned at the joyfulness that I experienced. The win-win of the exchange was so memorable, I knew it had to be shared. So I created TIE ONE ON DAY™.

 

PARTICIPATION IN TOODAY IS SIMPLE : WRAP A BAKED GOOD IN DOMESTIC CLOTH; ADD A SWEET NOTE; TIE ON AN APRON & DELIVER YOUR OFFERING!

ENTER! PARTICIPATE! ENTER! PARTICIPATE! ENTER! PARTICIPATE!

To encourage adding Tie One On Day to your Thanksgiving traditions, a dedicated group of generous SPONSORS are putting some fabulous “give” into the TOODAY 2017 GOODIE GIVEAWAYS!

To enter the Tie One on Day Giveaways, leave a comment at the end of this blog posting, sharing how you will participate in this year’s TOOD. Your comment is your entry into the November 22nd giveaway drawings! Four (4) Giveaway Winners will be randomly selected and contacted via their provided email. ***Winner must live within the USA.

Thanksgiving is a holiday of sharing, recollection and traditions, and the apron symbolizes these concepts.

Please join in and tie one on…an apron, of course! and make a difference in someone’s life with a gesture of kindness.

TIE ONE ON … GIVE FROM THE HEART … THEN GIVE THANKS

Gratefully, EllynAnne

How Wilma B is sharing her apron love

Memories of Grandma fixing dinner in and on a big wood cookstove come to mind as I get in the mood for harvest dinners and Thanksgiving. A few years later she had an electric range that enabled her to enjoy the visiting and cooking more. She always had an apron on, usually a white “penny” one — years later I would be told they were “pinny” aprons because they were usually pinned in place. Grandma’s was a “penny” because she always had a few in the pocket to pay for an errand she had me do.
So, my apron turned tote bag will have a penny pocket along with a nice loaf of bread.

I’m inspired to make an apron for my friend Maggie who moved to our small town last year. She is working so hard to settle her young family and to support her husband on a difficult work situation. I’m already thinking of a piece of fabric in my stash, and a big batch of morning glory muffins should be perfect for her little kiddos.
