Tonight, I'll be putting on my red shirt and going to work at Target after I eat Thanksgiving dinner. But when I sit down at the table, I'll be thinking about everything I'm thankful for -- including you.

When I started my petition asking Target to open later for Black Friday shopping, I never imagined it would be this successful. Nearly 370,000 people (including you!) signed in support, and my campaign inspired 157 other petitions by workers at retail stores around the country. I even flew to Target's headquarters in Minneapolis to deliver the signatures! I am truly in awe of the effect just one petition had for so many people like myself, who want to keep Thanksgiving dedicated to family.

Target may not have decided to open later on Thanksgiving, but you and I were definitely heard by retailers everywhere opening early for Black Friday shopping. My story was featured in the media 1,628 times, including interviews with the Washington Post, TIME, USA Today, and many, many more. (And in case you missed it from the previous email, you can see my interview on the Today Show here!)

When I first found out I would be forced to work on Thanksgiving, I felt angry and frustrated. Now, even though I have to go into work, I feel empowered, because all of you are standing with me. I know Target and other retailers got the message loud and clear that Americans care about Thanksgiving and family more than their bottom line.

Thank you so much for supporting me through this fight -- and have a Happy Thanksgiving.
