Thanksgiving Campaign Roundup (11/27/13)

It’s that special time of year when we gather together with our loved ones, remember what we’re thankful for, and give more to others.

This campaign roundup features ways you can still give to communities in need this Thanksgiving, a funny parody about the rare convergence of Thanksgiving and Hanukkah this year, as well as some creative projects tied to this holiday.

From all of us here at Indiegogo, we wish you a peaceful, restful, and happy Thanksgiving & Hanukkah!
