Team Up With Sears to Support Our Troops & Their Families

The Sears Heroes at Home Wish Registry is an organization where you can give back to our troops, our veterans, and their families . . . also known as our heroes at home. Sears is asking you to donate any amount of money to go towards funding Sears gift cards. I did it and it is an extremely easy process. These gift cards will be distributed to military families who have been identified as ones who could use a little help this New Year's.

These families have expressed a need for certain items. Reading the list of items saddened me. They are not asking for flat screen televisions or video games, but rather basic essentials for everyday living. The number one item these families need are shoes for their children. The rest of the top ten items on the list are all clothing items for children, like warm coats and school clothes.

It must be tough all year round for our troops who are stationed abroad, but I can only imagine that the holidays are the toughest. On top of the stress of being far from home and their loved ones, it must be a major concern for each military member whether their families are doing okay at home. Supporting the Sears Heroes at Home Wish Registry will help to alleviate some of that stress. With the important job of fighting for our freedom on their shoulders, our troops should not have to worry about whether their children have shoes and warm clothing to wear to school.

As I stated previously, making a donation is easy. Just go to the Sears website and enter the amount you would like to donate in the box. You can donate any amount . . . whether it's one dollar or a thousand dollars, keeping in mind that this contribution is not tax-deductible. Then you can add the donation to your shopping cart and check out just like you normally would. After you've made your contribution, you may post a message of support expressing thanks to our troops for all they are doing for us and our families.
