“We have a day for giving thanks. We have two for getting deals….Wouldn’t it be great to have a day for giving back?" #GivingTuesday™ is a campaign to create a national day of giving at the start of the annual holiday season. It celebrates and encourages charitable activities that support nonprofit organizations.
If you wish to support the troops and their families this holiday season, consider shopping the USO Wishbook today! With gifts to suit every budget, the USO Wishbook offers items to support deployed troops, wounded warriors and military families, priced from $15 up to $5,000 for extraordinary gifts. For $25 or less, you can purchase a care package that helps get a service member through the initial days of deployment, a kit to help a military child cope with the stresses of military life, or a calling card to keep a service member and their family connected.
A perfect gift for anyone on your list, help us lift the spirits of America’s troops and their families for the holidays!
