As a military wife and an American, I love supporting companies that understand the value of supporting our military members. As a Coast Guard wife, I haven't had to experience the separation from my husband that many military wives often endure. I have also never had the privilege of living overseas (though one day I hope I can). As a military sister, however, I have already experienced missing my brother way too much while he was stationed in Hawaii and this year when he leaves for Germany it will truly be bittersweet.
I am thrilled for my brother, I really am, but I am going to miss him like crazy. I can't wait to have an excuse to visit Germany, but I know I won't see much of my brother or his family over the next four years. I can't imagine what it will be like for them. I'm sure like every station we've been to it will have it's ups and downs, but with the added distance I know it will be difficult at times. We are a pretty close family and being separated by an ocean is hard on all of us.
Thankfully companies like Community Coffee understand just how difficult being far from home can be. Community Coffee created the Military Match program with that in mind. As they say in their video they have given away 4.2 million cups of coffee around the world so military members can "enjoy a taste of home wherever they may be". Cue the heavy feels...
Before I tell you about the awesome contest that's going on right now I want to tell you a little more about the Military Match program. I think this is a great resource for military members and I hope you'll help me share it!
Community Coffee Military Match Program:
For over ten years Community Coffee has been doubling coffee orders for military members overseas.
To participate military members purchase 4 12oz, 16oz, or Single Serve 18ct coffees and they get 4 additional items free. The coffee must be shipped to an APO/FPO or military base address to be eligible and these gift box orders can be placed four times per month. They also give a few Signature Military Match mug for FREE! The orders must ship via USPS and you can learn more about this program here.
How awesome is that?
As if the program itself weren't enough reason to celebrate, Community Coffee is currently hosting the #MilitaryMatchContest!
