It’s always difficult for families to watch a loved one being called into military service that takes them out of the country. The holidays are an especially tough time to be without those closest to you. Cheerios has teamed up with the USO to help bring a bit of cheer to military families in these especially difficult times.
Right now, you can find specially-marked boxes of Cheerios that feature a Cheer postcard on the front of the box. Simply cut out the postcard and mail it, along with a message of thanks to our troops and their families to the USO (the address is already printed on the postcard). The card will then be delivered to a military family somewhere across the country.
That, in and of itself, is a nice gesture. But Cheerios is sweetening the deal. Cheerios will make a $1 donation to the USO to help fund programs that support military families for each postcard received through November 2012. Pretty cool, right?!
Cheerios has already donated $150,000 to the USO and will donate up to an additional $100,000, just depending on how many postcards get mailed in. That’s where you have a role to play! By sending in a postcard, you not only show your gratitude to our military families and send them a message of holiday joy, but you also help support the USO. So grab a box of Cheerios and spread some cheer!
