“This post was sponsored by the USO. All opinions are my own.”
After all of the Christmas presents are bought and the weekend has come and gone, it’s time to reflect on Giving Tuesday. If you don’t know about the USO, they have a mission to strengthen service members and they do this by keeping them connected to their family, home, and country. This is all done throughout their service to the nation.
Force Behind the Forces®
The USO has a desire for all military supporters to join Force Behind the Forces®. This means that the USO has a deep desire to connect service members and their families to their homes. They want to connect service members to their families no matter where they serve.
There is no doubt that all service members and military families work hard every single day. There are daily sacrifices that are made on both parts. When service members are out in the field, even the smallest reminder of home can have a huge impact. Every service member is there for us, now it’s time for us to be there for them.
Away From Home This Holiday Season
It’s no surprise that thousands of service members will be on duty, this holiday season, and they will also be away from home. Service members that are stationed away from home this holiday season are missing out on seeing their family. They are also missing out on precious moments and favorite traditions.
This holiday season, it’s important to find a way to bridge the distance. It’s important to make service members feel as though they are connected to their family, home, and country.
USO and the Gift of the Holidays
Give one of the most meaningful gifts you’ll give this holiday season – a gift that helps our Armed Forces remain a force for good in the world. While the holidays are here, it’s an essential time to give back to those who give so much! Giving Tuesday is the perfect opportunity to partner with USO and give back.
You may be wondering what the USO Wishbook is and what the means this Giving Tuesday.
Give toward a gift for good through the USO Wishbook at USO.org/Holidays. The USO Wishbook is an online alternative giving catalog and it offers donors a way to support the USO. This is done by purchasing symbolic gifts for friends and loved ones that help America’s service members and their families.
Host a Fundraiser for the USO
If you are looking for ways to give back to our servicemen or women, consider hosting a fundraiser. You can host a fundraiser to rally other military supporters to help men and women in uniforms and their families. If you’d like to learn more about starting a Facebook Fundraiser for the USO, please go to USO.org/facebookfundraiser.
I hope that this Giving Tuesday, you have a little more direction on WHERE you can give this holiday season. USO is a program that gives back and that is what Giving Tuesday is all about.
