No matter how the tradition began, it's what Thanksgiving has become that makes it an extraordinary holiday; a designated day for family and friends to gather at the dinner table and share what it is they are thankful for and to actually give thanks. It has also become a day of great charity, with thousands of Americans choosing to spend this day with those who may not have a dinner table to gather around and provide those who are in need with a warm meal and limitless compassion. It is these charities and selfless acts that have inspired us to help our neighbors in need; Therapy will be donating a total of $5,000 to four local charities: Larkin Street Youth in San Francisco, the Ecumenical Hunger Program of East Palo Alto, Family Supportive Housing in San Jose and the East Oakland Community Project.

So in the spirit of this wonderful day, we just want to extend our deepest gratitude to every customer that walks through our doors; without your constant support, we don't know where we'd be and that makes us forever thankful. We are so proud that we have the customers we have because, frankly, there aren't better people in the world than all of you. You have allowed us to continue to do what we love and to thrive in the most tumultuous economic time we've experienced since we first opened our doors and with that said, you'd be hard pressed to find a more grateful group than the people that make up Therapy. We have always understood that our customers make everything possible; it is because of you that we were able to open two new locations within a year of each other; it is because of you that we are able to support local artisans by carrying their products in our stores; it is because of you that we get to live decent lives in a time of struggle and sacrifice. We will never stop saying 'thank you' for being part of our growing family. From all of us here at Therapy, we want to wish you and yours a safe and happy Thanksgiving! May your stomachs be filled with delicious food, your home overflowing with friends and family, and all the joy you can shake a stick at.
