Block Club Thanksgiving

What we’re thankful for (at work)

The big day has arrived! Our annual holiday of giving thanks—for pumpkins and pies, turkeys and Tofurkeys, stuffing and stomach aches. And the big things that make it all possible—our family, friends, fortunes and freedom!

But let’s face it, there are things, big and small, that deserve our gratitude on a daily basis. We asked our team of designers, strategists, writers and entrepreneurs to share what they’re most thankful for every day while they’re at work.

  • “My super comfortable desk chair. Thank you Block Club for looking out for my back and butt.”
  • “Marketing directors. You make our jobs so much easier.”
