Do you want to know how I make my menu planning and grocery purchases more meaningful?
If you’re thinking, “Absolutely!” keep reading!
For me it’s as simple as buying specially marked boxes of Cheerios™ and Family Size Honey Nut Cheerios™ with the donate to Operation Homefront messaging.
Operation Homefront (OH) builds strong, stable, and secure military families so they can thrive in the communities they’ve worked so hard to protect. OH provide tens of thousands of military families with resources whether they are struggling to make ends meet or just need a supportive military community.
Now, you can help too when you buy a specially-marked box of Cheerios at Walmart and enter the code found inside the box at CheeriosGives.com. Cheerios will then donate $1 (up to a maximum donation of $200,000) to the program of your choice to brighten the lives of military families.
I grew up eating Cheerios and served in the Army, so of course I picked up a few boxes of Family Size Cheerios to show my support because I know what it’s like for ends not to meet.
Growing up my household had plenty of issues. Ones I knew I didn’t want to replicate when I had a family of my own, which is one of the reasons I enlisted in the Army. Serving my country gave me structure, discipline, purpose and a roadmap. It also gave me a sense of consistency, certainty, values, friendships and a steady paycheck — all of which I desperately needed.
That’s what I believe Operation Homefront helps military families with when they’re struggling.
Like Operation Homefront’s mission, I am building a strong, stable and secure family while passing solid values on to my children. I’m creating family traditions with every moment we spend together, even when it’s simple conversations at the breakfast table.
When I was a kid fishing the last Cheerio out of my bowl, I never imagined I’d serve in the Army and later have an amazing family to spend mornings eating Cheerios with.
Having my family together strong, stable, and secure is what makes it possible for us share our lives online with you.
