Have you heard of Marie Callendar’s Comforts From Home Project?? It brings the comforts of home to those who protect America’s homes every day: the brave men and women of the U.S. Military. Every time you enter a code from a specially marked package of Marie Callender’s meals or desserts, Marie Callender’s will make a donation to USO2GO, a USO program that brings electronics, sports gear, books, games, and more to troops stationed in remote locations. Visit ComfortsfromHome.com to learn more about how you can join Marie Callender’s in helping to bring a little bit of home sweet home to our U.S. service men and women overseas.
It’s a win win – donations for them, and you get to enjoy the yummy goodness. We’re diehard fans of Marie Callender’s here – it’s the best frozen chicken pot pie around!
I have a few family friends that are military families – I am in awe what they sacrifice to service our county and my family. They are amazing. For every entry by 1/31/2015 of an 8-digit code found on participating products, Marie Callender’s will donate $.50 to the USO2GO program. Guaranteed minimum donation: $100,000. Maximum donation: $250,000. Limit 5 code entries per person/computer each day. Valid in U.S. Only. One of my daughters was able to enter our codes:
And have you ever heard of the Thunderclap initiative? It was new to me…
it is a tool that helps promote wider reach of messages by broadcasting them at the same time through the social media channels of friends – or in this case, a large group of consumers promoting the same good cause. In the coming weeks, the Marie team will start reaching out to consumers through the brand’s Facebook page to get them to sign up to be part of the Thunderclap which will launch on Sunday, 11/30 if we meet our supporter goal.
Think of it like this: a person sees the link to the Marie CFH Thunderclap page on Facebook -> click the link -> land on the Marie Thunderclap page where they can sign up to support Marie Callender’s CFH through Facebook/Twitter/Tumblr -> on 11/30 the pre-populated Marie Callender’s CFH message (below) will be automatically posted on that person’s feed -> our message is seen by thousands and incremental codes are entered!
You can sign up to support this effort RIGHT NOW by visiting https://www.thunderclap.it/projects/17947-comforts-from-home-project?locale=en. The message, “Help the USO & Marie Callender’s Meals bring the #ComfortsFromHome to troops overseas. Enter the on-pack code today! http://thndr.it/1E3IE6x” will hopefully encourage thousands to enter the on-pack code and therefore drive donations to USO2GO.
