National Day of ThanksgivingThis year’s National Day of Thanksgiving (NDOT) will be on Saturday 31st May. This is a chance for Australians to come together to celebrate our God-given heritage, and to demonstrate the Christian values of honour, respect, thankfulness and gratitude towards others.

The focus of this year's NDOT will be on two primary groups; transport and travel, and neighbours.

It's encouraged that Australians thank those people who work in the transport and travel industries. This would include bus, train, tram, taxi, and truck drivers.  Also, pilots, transport companies, couriers, and travel agents.

There'll also be a focus on thanking our neighbours. The concept of neighbours goes beyond the person next door to include those who, through their thoughtfulness and kindness, contribute in any way to make our lives more pleasant.

While the national focus for the NDOT is transport workers and neighbours, don’t forget to use the opportunity to thank individuals who have made a difference in your life and the life of your family and community.
