[Photo via] As we prepare for the annual pig out that is Thanksgiving, the holiday has likely prompted some reflection and thoughts on what you're most thankful to have in your life. A wonderful way to show your gratitude and help spread the love others may need this time of year is by giving back, and there are many opportunities to do so. Volunteer your time to cook and serve meals to those less fortunate through organizations such as One Incredible Family, SOVA, and Food on Foot. Bring a friend or someone in need of warm food to The Laugh Factory where comedians and celebrities are serving up Thanksgiving meals and laughs. Or enjoy guilt-free Thanksgiving seconds and thirds by participating in Turkey Trots to support great causes. Check out the various events going down in L.A. where you can give back and help those in need this Thanksgiving Day.
