USA Today owner invests in company that is developing Thanksgiving.com domain name.
Publisher Gannett Co., Inc, which owns USA Today, has invested in Grateful Ventures. The investment will be used in part to accelerate development of Thanksgiving.com, which it hopes to make a destination for holiday cooking.
Grateful Ventures describes itself as “an online media and publishing coalition, focusing on building content and monetization strategies for high value domains”. It uses the domain Grateful.ventures.
Thanksgiving.com was owned by Digimedia. In 2014 the Whois record switched to privacy.
Digimedia president Jay Chapman tweeted about the investment earlier today:

I have reached out to Jay to see if Digimedia is still involved with the domain name.
