Their Healthy Kids Thank-A-Thon urged parents, grandparents and mommies-to-be to submit gratitude statements, photos, videos and blogs online explaining why they are grateful for a healthy child on the Health Kids Thank-A-Thon website.

There are some really touching videos from parents and family members, and I thought that even though it’s not Thanksgiving anymore, we can still take a moment to reflect on this important topic. Check out the YouTube videos here. Visit the Thank-A-Thon Web site here.
