Who Are Your Amazing Thanksgiving Heroes?

La Brea Bakery is the leading artisan bread in the United States and is sold in 7,000-7,500 accounts (retail outlets and chains) nationwide. They have an awesome contest, and they want you to nominate your “Thanksgiving Hero”! La Brea Bakery (aff) will deliver fully catered meals to 5 finalists nationwide on Thanksgiving! Submissions will close Nov 15th, 2015, so ensure you get your nomination quickly and early! Finalists will be announced on November 17th, 2015, after which the public can vote for their favorites through November 20th, 2015.

Now, we all have somebody in our lives that we would consider our Thanksgiving Hero. I want to introduce you to Dani Ryan.

Dani embodies a hero even if she doesn't think so! She has worked as a paramedic and firefighter for the Oak Brook Fire Department for ten years! She saves lives for a living. She has given up countless holidays with her family to keep the rest of us safe! That's why she's my hero.

I also can tell you how selfless she is. She worked with me on her day off last week at our school's book fair. One of the kindergarteners fell and hit her head. She was bleeding pretty well, too. Dani ran from where we were on one end of the building to the classroom, which is literally on the other end, to help that little girl. (We are a tiny school, so we don't have a school nurse.) She did it because, well, that's what she does. Selfless to a tee.

You all have somebody in your life like this, so make sure you nominate them! Who would you select as your Thanksgiving Hero?

  1. Dani sounds like an incredible woman and certainly sounds as though she has been a hero to many people. The best heros never feel that they are heros, which I can completely understand. Just doing what everyone should and what is right.

  2. I just recently heard about this and I love this initiative. I live in LA and haven’t been to La Brea bakery, and I didn’t know it was so well known, so I may have to check it out!
