WASHINGTON (AdAge.com) -- President Bush and his wife, Laura, will give thanks this year not only at the holiday dinner table but in an Advertising Council public service TV announcement as well.

The White House today announced that a 30-second spot filmed by the Bushes at their Crawford, Texas, ranch by Golin Harris Public Relations for the Corporation for National Service would begin airing immediately on major broadcast and cable networks.

Ties to Sept. 11
The "thanks-for-giving" ad, while pegged to Thanksgiving, also ties to the Sept. 11 terrorist incidents.

In the spot, the president and first lady suggest people have given much this year, but there is more to do and urge people to volunteer and give.
