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 programs and children’s summer camps. They were able to host over 29 weeks of summer camps in 2015 with 2,700 campers as well as more than 400 Operation Purple Family Retreat® participants and 320 Operation Purple Healing Adventure® participants. (If you or anyone you know has been able to participate in one of these events, let us know in the comments below!)

Operation Purple Family Retreats®
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.

Operation Purple Healing Adventures®
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.”

These camps are designed support military kids with a deployed, wounded, ill, or injured 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 the Operation Purple® program.

We donated $5,000 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 2016 Operation Purple® year one to remember!
