It has been an amazing journey at ‘Our Letters to You’, a military family blog. I started writing in 2007 and now just a few short years later our team has written a thousand blog-posts! Blogs full of empowerment, support, education, fun and a bit of ‘been there done that’.
One-thousand posts; This calls for a celebration!
… Which is just what we are going to do. We have some great prizes thanks to some wonderful companies that support our military families.
Two $250 Visa Cards from USAA
One $100 Gift Card from Sears
One $100 Gift Card from Home Depot
A beautiful pendent from USAA.com/Jewelry (valued at over $500)
A $50 Visa Card from Dee Ramsay Burnett of Prudential Network Realty
Five $20 Visa Cards from Sitter City
A package of books full of support from Army Wife Network
WOWZERS! This is exciting. Thank you to all of these companies for supporting MilitaryAvenue.com as our story has unfolded over the years and more importantly thank you for supporting our military families.
What do you have to do to be eligible for one of these prizes? First off all this blog is written for and by the military-family. So you need to be somehow affiliated: a spouse, a service-member, a veteran, a “Brat”, a parent. The military-family deserves to be recognized; let’s make sure they get the most out of this fun collection of prizes!
How do you enter? Just leave a comment on this blog-post! (Wow, easy stuff!) Introduce yourself and your affiliation with the military. If your name is randomly drawn we need to be able to contact you so please leave your email address as well. It can by cryptic so bots don’t pick it up (ie, leanne at militaryavenue dot com or leanne @ militaryavenue.com) just as long as I can send you an email that says YOU ARE THE WINNER! 🙂
