The Thanks-Giving Foundation
Overview • We are The Thanks-Giving Foundation, and our founders have imagined and constructed Thanks-Giving Square in the heart of downtown Dallas, the architecturally significant and spiritually important soul of the community. Anchored in The Square, we (TTGF) make North Texas a better place to live, work and play by educating, inspiring and moving its people towards becoming the City of Thanks-Giving. We are advocates and facilitators of personal transformation by means of individuals embracing gratitude, virtue and goodwill. Those transformed people form our transformed community. Beliefs and Purpose • We BELIEVE, that by increasing the presence of GRATITUDE in people's daily lives, we can promote understanding and create a common ground for harmony. A harmony that resonates on multiple dimensions including being at harmony with others, with our community, and with ourselves. Gratitude can guide us to that place of harmony • We BELIEVE that an individual that strives to live a life of VIRTUE will find happiness and contentment in their virtuous journey. Furthermore, virtuous people will necessarily advocate for public and civic virtue within the body politic, and will consequently improve the communities in which they live. Living within this framework, citizens will willingly exercise reasoned self-restraint, compassion, and decency, will find political compromise, and will set aside private interest for the good of society. • We BELIEVE that people of differences that reason together in a spirit of GOODWILL will resolve to a reasonable compromise. Goodwill is the basic component of "good people"…those with clean motives, and those who possess a lack of prejudice, cruelty and viciousness. Our neighbors and neighborhoods prosper in the presence of people of goodwill. • Our PURPOSE (MISSION) is to bring together diverse people on the common ground of gratitude.
BridgeBuilders restores relationships under the banner of Christ by engaging, equipping, and empowering individuals, families, and communities in South Dallas.
