#MyBlogSpark Cheerios Cheer Campaign & #Giveaway - Ends 11/25

*Scroll to the bottom of this post to enter giveaway.

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:
During the months of October and November, 2011, 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.

For each postcard received through November 2012, Cheerios will make a $1 donation to the USO to help fund programs that support military families.

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 now through November 30th, 2012.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!

A postcard may not seem like much, but to the families left behind by loved ones who have been called away to serve, it can mean more than you'll ever know. As an ex-military wife myself, I know first hand how much one kind word can brighten the day. I think it's wonderful that Cheerios is reaching out to our military families and encouraging consumers to show appreciation for their dedication, sacrifice, and service. Won't you join me in saying, "thanks"?
Cheerios is on FACEBOOK!

My first husband was in the military and even though he didn't see any action, it's still a very hard life. Being so far from family all the time. I respect all of the service men and women and say Thank You to all of them!

I have a lot of military family and friends, and i am amazed of how proud they are of serving in the military, when they get together is like they are brothers and sisters and it doesn't matter what gender, religion or race they are. What inspire me is that they take care of each other even when they are not at the war front.

Military families inspire me because they are so brave. They allow there loved ones to fight for us. They have to stay strong while there loved ones are away. The strength they show is definitely inspiring!
