Crazy busy. That is what I’m feeling lately with Thanksgiving only a few days away. I’ve been baking up a storm with the weather change. I think it’s partly because I like to bake and mostly because I like to open the oven door after I’m done baking to help heat the house! You want cookies? Sure, let me heat up the oven for that!
Since life has been so busy, I decided to press pause and order up some frozen dinners one night. What I love about doing that is everyone can have what they really want to try and I get to heat up my oven! My sons picked Marie Callender’s Vermont White Cheddar Mac & Cheese. My husband chose Roasted Turkey Breast & Stuffing. (He must be anxious for Thanksgiving.) And I chose one of my all time favorites (we used to eat them all the time growing up) the every delicious Chicken Pot Pie. And for dessert we got the Dutch Apple Pie. YUM-O.
I chose Marie Callender’s for one reason. They’ve got this great new Comforts From Home Project where my purchases go to support the brave men and women of the U.S. Military. Since my brother’s deployment and return from Afghanistan a few years ago there is an not a holiday meal where I don’t think of our service members that cannot sit down with their family. That was my brother a few years ago and because of that I’m changed forever in how I treasure that time with family.
When you purchase select Marie Callender’s meals you’ll find an eight-digit code. You can enter it online at here. Marie Callender will send a donation to the USO2GO. Each code equals a $0.50 donation.
If you’re wondering what US02GO is, you’ll be happy to know that it’s a program that brings kits filled with electronics, sports gear, books, games and more to troops stationed in remote locations around the world. This is VERY important work. My brother was in a very remote part of Afghanistan for much of his tour of duty and there was nowhere for him to get supplies he would need personally except for receiving care packages. And while my brother had a full group of family and friends to support him and send him much needed items, not all service members have that kind of support and they depend on organizations like USO2GO. The picture above was taken by my brother when he was stationed in Afghanistan. This is literally how he got everything he needed!
So go save yourself some sanity tonight and grab some frozen dinners from Marie Callender’s and enter your eight-digit codes so that your donation can go to our service members. Marie Callender’s has committed to giving a minimum donation of $100,000. How awesome is that?
Here’s a picture of my brother while in Afghanistan all looking tough. 🙂 I love him so much and I am so proud of him! As you can tell, supporting organizations like the USO2GO are very important to me. You can sign up to support this effort RIGHT NOW by visiting here. Join many of us who are supporting this cause with a Thunderclap. You can link your Facebook or Twitter account so that we all share about this great supportive effort at one time!
