The Big List Blog
Gobble, gobble, blog … corporate blogs and Thanksgiving
Many corporate blogs are highlighting the Thanksgiving holiday being celebrated this week in the US, so we thought we’d share a look at how some Blog Council members are getting into turkey day:
Graco – Stop by Graco’s Thanksgiving Traditions post to see how the blogging team likes to spend the holiday, as well as a few Thanksgiving traditions from Graco friends around the blogosphere.
Microsoft – The Outlook team has some very timely tips on how to get the most out of Outlook’s Out of Office Assistant. Bookmark this one now and come back in late December, too!
Newell Rubbermaid – On the Newell Rubbermaid blog, you can find two posts dedicated to tips and tricks for a healthy Thanksgiving: Holiday Leftover Safety Tips and Thanksgiving Tips for your Holiday Meal.
SAP – Marilyn Pratt, Community Evangelist for SAP, makes a connection between community and thankfulness: “It would be my fondest hope realized to not only support an environment to help bridge IT and Business, culture with culture, community with community here, but also make meaning out of our work engagements and find some way of sharing the abundance we are so blessed to enjoy: be it knowledge, experience or copious harvest fruits.”
Sharpie – The folks at Sharpie share a creative way to personalize your table this holiday weekend using decorative stones. Cool stuff!
Walmart – Tara Raddohl shares the news about Walmart donating 70 million meals and new refrigerated trucks as part of its $2.5 million donation to the Feeding America organization. That’s fantastic and kudos to Walmart for helping out those less fortunate.
Wells Fargo – For college students, Thanksgiving can be a bit stressful because it’s usually “catch up time” for homework or long-overdue projects. Caroline Hanson shares some tips for college students to make Thanksgiving productive on Wells Fargo’s Student LoanDown blog.
