With the Holidays here there are so many of loved ones who are far away. So many of my friends Husbands, Wives, Brothers and Sisters are across the seas serving our Country so many of them wont be able to see their family this Holiday Season.
That’s why I love what Cheerios is doing with the “Cheer” promotion!
Cheerios and the USO are partnering to send “Cheer” to military families to thank and encourage them for their commitment to our country. Specially marked boxes of Cheerios cereal will feature “Cheer” postcards, which can be cut out and mailed to military families through a partnership with the USO. Even more, for each postcard received, Cheerios will donate $1 to the USO to help support programs for military families.
Cheerios has already donated $150,000 and will donate up to an additional $100,000 based upon the number of postcards received by November 30, 2012.
How Does the Program Work?
Locate a specially marked Cheerios cereal box in your grocery store. After purchasing the box, there are just 3 easy steps!
- Cut out the postcard found on the front of the box. You will see cut out lines around the “Cheer” in the Cheerios logo.
- On the back-side of the postcard, write a message of encouragement or a simple “thank you.”
- Add postage, and drop the pre-addressed post card in the mail.
Once the postcards are received, the USO will distribute them to military families on bases and in USO centers. Sending your ‘thanks’ is a simple, personal gesture of appreciation that will mean so much for the recipient.
