Toni W. writes, "We often invite foreign students who are studying in the US at a local University to our Thanksgiving dinner. The are often so excited to share our Thanksgiving tradition and we send them each back to their dorm or apartment with our Thanksgiving leftovers. My husband’s father was a college professor and this was the tradition that my husband grew up with. 🥧 🦃"

Toni, I love this. You can be sure that the students will never forget their American Thanksgiving experience!

This is such an important topic; thank you for addressing it! I have a lot of the items you mentioned, but I am inspired to pick up a charger, vitamins, and a couple of reference books.

One topic you didn't cover is lack of water. I keep several jugs of water in the garage, as well as a few items that would help us use less water, such as disposable dishes and hand sanitizer.
