Send Cheer to Military Families with Cheerios {Giveaway}

One of the best things about owning Experimental Mommy is turning my online relationships into true friendships.  I have met all types of women from beauty bloggers to coupon clippers, review bloggers to foodies but I am always amazed at the strength and courage of the military families I have met along the way.  Behind every soldier is a family that rises to the challenge and serves this Country as well.

This holiday, send a note of thanks and “cheer” to our Military families.  Cheerios and the USO have partnered in a postcard campaign that spreads Cheer directly to these honorable military families and supports USO programs. Through the end of November, purchase a box of specially-marked Cheerios and cut out the postcard from the logo.  Write a note of thanks, add a stamp and mail the pre-addressed card to the USO who will deliver the cards to military families across the country.

This campaign not only helps to spread cheer to military families, but raises money for the USO as well.  For each postcard received through November 2012, Cheerios will make a $1 donation to the USO to help fund programs that support military families!  What a great way to say THANKS this holiday season!


One winner will receive a Cheerios bow, spoon, cereal dispenser and box of Cheerios!
