Sarah Sturgis, a Tastefully Simple consultant from Pennsylvania, recently had the opportunity to guest blog on Share Our Strength's No Kid Hungry blog about her experience holding a Friendsgiving event using Tastefully Simple's Friendsgiving Kit.

Friendsgiving. I had never heard of such a thing. I came across the Friendsgiving Entertaining Kit from Tastefully Simple and thought … what? Whoever came up with this idea is brilliant! In addition to my traditional turkey dinner with family on Thanksgiving, now I get a second turkey dinner, Tastefully Simple-style (my favorite!) with my friends.
I'm lucky enough to have two turkey dinners, but there are too many kids who don't have even one. And I have always been a fundraiser for charitable causes. So I decided to host a Friendsgiving as a fundraiser for No Kid Hungry.
