    Phrase: thanks to

    as a result of; due to:
    it‘s thanks to you that he’s in this mess

    plural noun: thanks for

    an expression of gratitude:
    festivals were held to give thanks for the harvest
    a letter of thanks

    another way of saying thank you: thanks for being so helpful, many thanks
