Sending Cheers to our Military Families Giveaway!

Hi everyone!

I have a wonderful giveaway for a fantastic cause today! The amazing folks at General Mills have created a specially marked Cheerio cereal box.

Everyone can use a little pick me up now and then. But for the millions of military families manning the fort at home while their loved ones are away serving, a gesture of Cheer is especially welcome.

When our troops are called to serve, their families must rise to meet the challenges of service as well. 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’s how it works:

  • 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.
  • 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.
Sending a “Cheer” postcard is a simple way to say thanks and lift the spirits of our country’s military families. So, take a moment out of your day to spread some Cheer and send a message of thanks!

How awesome is that!

    10. Being the spouse of an active duty military member, I know first hand how incredible it feels to be remembered by others. The families of those deployed thru the Reserve Units aren't always necessarily near a military base to get the support that is offered there, so being remembered thru programs like this is huge! A big thank you to General Mills for supporting our military!

    11. I am planing to purchase several of these boxes, so that I can send a bit of Happiness to some whom are representing all of us by being in the USA Military!!!
      I Pray that God will Bless all of our Troops and keep them Safe, Today and Always. :-)

    12. I want to send some cheer!!
