If you follow me on Twitter, you may have noticed I’ve been tweeting and retweeting a lot about something called “#sendcheer” lately. It’s a campaign I’m currently running with Collective Bias that I couldn’t be more excited about. As an Army wife myself, helping military families, big or small, is something I’m quite passionate about, and this initiative is a fun and easy way to not only help support the military, but to get the kids involved while doing it. (Be sure read my post about other ways to help the military, too!)
Cheerios® has teamed up with the USO to “send cheer” to military families by sending encouragement and thanks using special postcards you can cut out from specially marked Cheerios boxes. Look!
|How cool is THAT!?|
Once stamped, these pre-addressed postcards will go to the USO to be distributed by them to military families. As a result, for each card received, $1 for each card will be donated by Cheerios to the USO to help fund programs that help support the military and their families. How wonderful is that? You can do all that, just for the price of a stamp, and a few words of encouragement and thanks written! Awesome!
Imagine being on the receiving end of one of these postcards! I get sniffly and teary-eyed just thinking about how much this will make a family’s day, with all they military families go through, serving right alongside their soldier.
I can’t help but feel pride in this campaign, as a military wife, and I am supporting this 1000%. I hope you do, too. To celebrate this campaign launch at Walmart, we’re having a #sendCheer with Cheerios® Twitter Party!
