Help Us Support Military Families
November just might be our favorite month of the year. This month we’re making your referral efforts go even further by donating $50 for every one of your referral enrollments to the National Military Family Association’s Operation Purple® program!
Operation Purple® is a great program that organizes family retreats, healing adventures, and children’s summer camps. (If you or anyone you know has been able to participate in one of these events, let us know in the comments below!)
These retreats are designed to help families reconnect after a deployment. Families are able to spend time in beautiful outdoor locations, participate in fun family-oriented activities, make memories together, and learn valuable communication skills—ensuring they return home stronger.
Designed to celebrate rediscovering family fun and togetherness after an injury, these camps combine family activities and outdoor exploration. Families also learn communication skills to ensure they can continue growing closer while adapting to a “new normal.”
Operation Purple® Camps
This past summer, the National Military Family Association hosted 13 camps throughout the U.S.! These camps are designed support military kids with a deployed parent by allowing them to connect with other kids just like them. Military kids from families of all ranks and services (including National Guard and Reserve components) are invited to share this unique, memorable, weeklong camp experience.
We love this program, and we are so excited to be donating again this year. You don’t need to do anything to participate. We’ll pay your referral bonuses as usual, and for each of your referral enrollments, we will also donate $50 to Operation Purple®.
We donated $5,500 last year—but you can help us give more by telling your friends and family to enroll this month. Let’s beat last year, and make the 2015 Operation Purple® year one to remember!
