    Wow. That is an amazingly generous offer. I've never seen such a valuable object offered for free anywhere, ever.

    There are many things that I am thankful for. Some are very personal, and I'd feel awkward posting them on a public forum. But here are two that I feel no reservations about expressing:

    1.) I am thankful that my wife and our son and myself are all alive and well. -- and -- 2.) I am thankful for the beauty and wonder of the natural world.

    Regarding the other qualifying conditions, I live in North America, in California, and I own only two pens that cost more than $50. One of them cost just under $100, and the other just over that amount. If I won the drawing, this would be the most valuable pen I'd own.

    HAPPY THANKSGIVING!

    Thanks for the generous PIF!

    Iím thankful for all of the little conveniences I take for granted, like being able to hop in my car and get anything I need.

    Iím thankful for the ability to go to mass.

    I own less than 10 fountain pens total and am located in the USA

    I own less than 10 with a total value about 1/2 of your max. I live in the USA.

    My first and primary gratitude and thanks go to my wife, without her i'd be a far different man.
    My second gratitude belongs to the fact that I am still alive. My health is poor and I know my expiration is on the horizon.

    Woah! This is a super generous PIF, thanks!

    I'm thankful for my twin sister finding her way in a different state! I'm also thankful for my family and bf who're constantly reminding me that I can always do and be better!

    I have exactly zero pens over $50, and a ton of $2-$10 pens, the shark jinhaos are so cute! (I do love my TWSBI GO!)

    1.) I am thankful for first responders. Their jobs tough and they do an amazing work. They help so many people and don't even earn that much.

    2.) I am thankful to my parents for making me into the the person I am. They have shaped me. Without them I would not be able to have the life I have.

    Thanks for your huge generosity!

    Since I've just moved to US couple months ago, I left all of my family and friends back in my country. Short after I moved, I met wonderful people, have amazing roommates and really friendly work environment. I'm grateful that I have passed a very stressful part of my life with the support of these amazing people.

    I'm grateful for everything happened to me until I become who I am today. Right now I have very exciting opportunities in front of me, and I'm grateful for the fact that I have nothing to complain.
