When our troops are called to serve, their families are called upon as well. Military families live a different life than most of us, with extraordinary commitment to our country. To thank them, Cheerios and the USO have partnered in a postcard campaign that spreads Cheer directly to these honorable military families and supports USO programs. Here are the details on how you can get involved:
- Now through November, 2011 at your local grocer, specially-marked boxes of Cheerios cereal will feature Cheer postcards on the front of the box. Consumers can simply cut out the postcard from the Cheerios logo, write a message of thanks on the back, add a stamp and mail the pre-addressed card to the USO. The USO will deliver the Cheer card to military families across the country.
- For each postcard received through November 2012, Cheerios will make a $1 donation to the USO to help fund programs that support military families.
- To kick off the campaign, Cheerios has already donated $150,000 to the USO and will donate up to an additional $100,000 based upon the number of postcards received from specially marked boxes now through November 30th, 2012.
To enter this giveaway, leave a comment telling me how a Military member or family has affected your life. I'm keeping this one short and simple... one entry per person. The giveaway starts now and will end on Friday, December 9, 2011 at 11:59pm.
