Sign the pledge to not shop businesses that force employees to work on Thanksgiving.

This year, it’s time we take back Thanksgiving from greedy businesses.

As major retail stores plan to open their doors Thursday morning pushing Black Friday deals on consumers even earlier, the retail creep is taking quality time away from families.

Thanksgiving is an American tradition almost 400 years in the making. It’s a day of giving thanks for the "blessing of the harvest" and all that came that preceding year. It’s a secular celebration with no room for materialism.

So don’t be swallowed up by advertising; instead, give thanks for what you have. It’s time we share in more conversations, spend extra time with friends and family, and push aside our desire for extra possessions.

This Thanksgiving, we ask you to consider the families of the employees forced to work and join us in boycotting the retail stores open on Thanksgiving. Together, we can take back the day we’ve set aside as a nation to give thanks and be thankful for what we have.

  • The greed is disgusting – as if shopping is more important than being thankful. Shame.
  • Thanksgiving is for families. The only way that will happen is when companies realize they are losing more than they are gaining.
