As a military veteran, I have finally found something I can do personally which can really make a difference in other military families' lives. Everyone has been sending out the care packages to the men and women who are away at war in a desert or on a mountain somewhere, but what about their families who are stuck in another country alone?
This year I have started a new hobby, sort of. I realized that I had a ton of expired coupons or extra coupons of items I wasn't really going to buy. Then I thought about all the coupons I don't clip out of my Sunday paper. So now I am collecting expired and extra coupons to send to military families stationed overseas. These families can use your manufacturer's coupons up to 6 months past the expiration date. At first I did this on my own, but now I have included it as sort of a "charity" run by my business, Little Snuggle Buggles. We call the program the Stars and Stripes Coupon Project. Along with the coupons we try to donate as many coupon "billfolds" as we can, and we try to disseminate all the coupons evenly through all the overseas bases.
So anyhow, I would love if you moms could go through your coupons and send me any that you will not be using. Also, if you get a Sunday paper and donąt even take a look at the coupon section, please send them my way! Together, we can really help these families. I know times are hard for us here in the U.S., but they are even harder for military families overseas. Most of these families live below the poverty level and really have no choice of where to shop to get the best deals like we can here. I know how tough it is since I was stationed in Italy for 2 years. Groceries are expensive everywhere!
