Cheerios & USO sendCheer Campaign #sendcheer @MomCentral @GeneralMills @Walmart #military

  Supporting our military troops and their families is something that is near and dear to my heart.  I am amazed at the qualities exhibited by military personnel: a drive and dedication, and the loyalty and  selflessness, and their families. Their continual  fight to support our freedom and way of life inspires me. That is why, when I was presented with the opportunity to share the Cheerios sendCheer Campaign, I had to help.

Since my son-in-law is a disabled veteran, I know all too well how much he missed family, holidays, traditions, and our own culture. Everyday there are  men and women serving far away from what they know and love. But, it is also hard for the family members left behind, faced with  worry on a daily basis.

Throughout November, Cheerios and the USO want to bring Cheer to the families of the troops.  How?

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.

Cheerios invites you to show your appreciation by sending a simple “thank you” using the “Cheer” postcard found on the front of specially marked boxes of Cheerios in stores through mid-November.

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.

What a better month to show our thanks than the month of Thanksgiving! Won’t you participate?

Share with us! Do you have a loved one in the military? How do you support the troops?

I wrote this review while participating in a campaign by Mom Central Consulting on behalf of Cheerios and received a product sample to facilitate my review and a promotional item to thank me for taking the time to participate.
