Lesley, one of my FABULOUS readers helps operate the program CouponsToTroops. She wrote a blog post about this program on her site moreorlesley.com.
This program is doing great things for our troops. CouponsToTroops is a program designed to help raise awareness for US military families who are stationed overseas being able to use manufacturers’ coupons up to 6 months past their expiration date! (I know YOU have expired coupons! I sure do!)
CouponsToTroops has no operating budget, and they make no money from advertising. They rely solely on word of mouth (aka, blog posts like this.) It’s intent is to help support US military families… Here’s just a few of things that the military families have said:
~I LOVE to use coupons to help stretch our budget. If you can help us out I would be so grateful.
~It is very hard to find any good coupons over here. Any help will be greatly appreciated. You will not just be helping me and my family but many other military families
~I am not sure if you know how much of an impact your services have out here but I can tell you it helps our families tremendously!!
It is so easy get involved – cut coupons online, sunday papers, etc. and mail envelopes of coupons overseas to military families half way around the world!!
Right now CouponsToTroops is in an interesting predicament. The families that they help out have been ‘talking up’ the program so much – that right now they have a LOT of new families who have signed up to receive coupons. They need YOU so that they can help that many more military families!!
