I would be grateful to win a turkey dinner for my family this year since my mother, who is in her final stage of Alzheimer's/dementia, on hospice, may not be with us ever again to celebrate Thanksgiving. My mother always looked forward to cooking during the holidays, and we have always enjoyed her wonderful food but we can only enjoy the memories now. I would be able to spend the $250 gift card to alleviate the stress of not having to cook, and instead being able to spend quality time with my family and parents that I love very much!

I would buy all the ingredients and fixins to make my own vegan Thanksgiving meal. There is no other store in my area where I can do one-stop shopping, so Whole Foods you're it!

First of all its a blessing to have a store like whole foods market to serve us. The best store yet I love shopping in the store because of the best product I ever seen. My family can't always buy your product and would like to but we only have a limited of food stamps that welfare supply us. That's OK I still enjoy the food I purchase from whole foods market and we enjoyed them when we get the monies. So keep doing what you guys are doing to help many people please have a bless thanksgiving and pray we have a victorious thanksgiving also and all over the world! Thank You Sister Teresa

This $250.00 would make Thanksgiving very stressless for me since I would not have to worry about where to get the money from to buy the turkey and trimmings. I could even get the already prepared sided from Whole Foods together with some nice beverage to enjoy the day with my husband.

As someone who cares for a grandmother and significant other battling cancer, this past year has been a balance of working full time, caregiving and attending classes for my masters. i am grateful for all the opportunities to make a difference, but I am EXHAUSTED. A gift card spent on a prepared Thanksgiving from Whole Foods would be the ultimate gift!

Your store does have rather good 1-Day sales on Fridays for Seafood and sometimes Produce, can there be some for Meat or BBQ-related items as well?

We purchased our entire Thanksgiving meal from Whole Foods a few years ago right after my mother had a stroke and no one had time to cook from scratch. We just cooked the turkey and heated everything up. Everything was delicious from the turkey to the sides to the desserts! I highly recommend it!

Thanksgiving is the time of year where families like to get together to share a meal. Thanksgiving for me is everyday of the year that I'm graced to live on this earth. I'm thankful for everything and I've been blessed to have food on the table every day of my life. However, there are those that are a lot less fortunate than I am. Therefore, if I were to win the $250 Thanksgiving prize, I would use it to purchase food items from Whole Foods. I would then take the purchased ítems and distribute them to those that are in need.

I wish thanksgiving would be less stressful because sometimes there is a lot of extra pressure from family where there should be good food and good time.

I would use the $250 to buy a Jandi Farms turkey and brine it in buttermilk; then buy all the ingredients for a mushroom strudel., scalloped potatoes, brandied cranberry sauce and sugared pecans with a nice cheese platter and Whole Foods wine. HopeI win! YUM!!

Oh my goodness, A gift card for my Thanksgiving feast would feel like a big weight off of my shoulders. I used to love the holidays as a child, and now being a divorced single mother of two, the holidays have become a source of dread for me! I would love to have a wonderful Thanksgiving feast this year and not worry about how I am going to afford it. I want to start a new holiday tradition with my children and make their time with me on the holidays enjoyable and memorable. Thank you for your consideration.

That $250 gift card would mean so much to not only me but to my kids. This past week has been so stressful and will continue to be for some time. While at an eye doctors appointment I received a call from the fire department telling me that my kitchen was on fire from the stove malfunctioning. Needless to say my kitchen is a mess and I have to cover the cost of my stove which is going to leave little to no funds for thanksgiving dinner.

Thank you for offering such a wonderful gift of the $250 Gift Card! I've not been well for awhile now so having the opportunity to have a fully prepared Thanksgiving dinner would be a God Send. I appreciate being able to enter. Happy Thanksgiving!

This year we will be having a big reunion with a lot more nephews and nieces and grandchildren. My mom just turned 82 so my sister and I are in charge of preparing for about 20 people! However what I would do first is probably try to cook three turkeys and with one of the turkey's I would make sandwiches and go out and pass out the sandwiches to the homeless that tend to hang out around our neighbor hood. Knowing that I can feed those who don't have much makes Thanksgiving truly a benevolent day! Thank you, Maria

I would have much less stress being able to shop at wholefoods for thanksgiving as my daughter has many food allergies which makes it very hard to find things and make recipes during the holidays let alone any day of the week. She is 7 years old and was a very sick child for many years until we went to a holistic doctor that saved our lives, with the right foods our daughter has been very healthy and no longer sick daily. I have already been searching for foods and recipes for the holidays and I am already stressed on what to provide. Wholefoods would make it alot easier to shop at with a gift card as great healthy food is expensive for a family of 4. We are nut, wheat, gluten, soy, dairy, egg, oats free family due to my daughters allergies. We would be blessed to have some help for the holidays! :)

I would like to SURPRISE my wife and family with a stress-free Thanksgiving meal. My wife volunteers 5 days a week and still makes time for family and friends. In spite of all her medical issues she does so much for so many people and really deserves a break for once in her life. Mahalo.

Being an Indian, I have never got a chance to celebrate Thanksgiving day, but this year, my 2 kids ( 6 and 14) expressed their desire to celebrate because they learn so much in school and they feel this day is important no matter from where you come from. I think they are already preparing their speech. From my side I thought I would start researching about what is served on Thanksgiving dinner, and I thought Whole Foods would be the best place because my colleagues have always told me that they have often ordered the complete Thanksgiving meal from Whole Foods. So I came in here to understand what a thanksgiving dinner looks like, and here I am writing this comment. So my thanksgiving gift card would go for buying everything that I need to put in my table for the special day which my kids are looking forward to.

I started shopping at Whole Foods about 2 years ago and love it. I have 6 children and prepare most meals at home because it gets quite expensive to eat out for 8 people. What a treat it would be to win a gift card and be able to buy a prepared holiday meal and alleviate all that stress that comes with cooking. I'd love to just relax and actually enjoy my family.
