It’s hard to have a holiday like Thanksgiving come and go without thinking of how many of our military spent it overseas. When I was a kid my dad spent several holidays in Saudi Arabia during Dessert Storm and it’s never easy for them.
There are many charities and initiatives to help support our troops and their families but I found one that does it by eating pie. Yes – you can support our troops with chocolate pie. And it’s delicious. Our family would have loved having a program like this when my dad was serving overseas.
You can easily support our troops when you buy these Mini Chocolate Satin Pies (or any of there specially marked dinners and desserts) with Marie Callender’s Comforts From Home. And it’s so easy. All you do is take the code on your box and enter it at www.comfortsfromhome.com and Marie Callender’s will donate .50 to USO2GO.
What is USO2GO? It is a USO program that brings kits filled with electronics, sports gear, books, games and more to troops stationed in remote locations around the world. The kits are intended to transform a remote base into a place where troops can organize a pick-up football game, relax in beanbag chairs and swap stories, or send e-mails to loved ones back home. How cool is that?
I entered my code and the total amount of time it took me was under ten seconds. It’s really easy. You can enter up to five codes per day up until January 31st, 2015.
