Military Spouse Appreciation Day is coming up on Friday, May 8th!
And, to celebrate, we’ve partnered with Starbucks, a Blue Star Neighbor, to gift 1,200 $5 gift cards to military spouses.
Why? Because they’re often unsung heroes. Yes, especially right now while we’re in COVID-19 survival mode.
While their service member may be serving on the frontlines of COVID-19, they say “yes” to wearing all the hats at home—from homeschool teacher to creative chef of whatever ingredients are currently in the pantry, and so much more.
Also, no matter how much they have on their plate at the moment, they find the time to serve other spouses and community members in need because that’s just what they do—they serve without hesitation or the need for recognition.
So, do you know a milspouse who is saying “yes” to wearing all the hats and deserves a big ‘ol “Thanks a latte!” from YOU — their grateful husband or wife, friend, or neighbor?
Well, between now and May 7, we’re seeking nominations through this form to gift $5 Starbucks gift cards to 1,200 more-than-deserving military spouses on Military Spouse Appreciation Day.
Maybe your favorite military spouse is your Battle Buddy or is always there to lend you a helping hand and offer up words of encouragement when military life is seriously testing your patience. He or she could even be the glue that holds your family together during long separations and trainings.
No matter who that special service member spouse is—whether a husband or wife, friend, or neighbor—we encourage you to nominate them today by filling out this quick and easy form before May 7.
We’ll select the first 1,200 people who apply, and if chosen, the milspouse you nominated will be notified via email on the morning of Military Spouse Appreciation Day (Friday, May 8), with a Starbucks gift card code so they can treat themselves to a pick-me-up via drive-through in honor of their commitment to their spouse, family, and nation!
Oh, and not to worry. We’ll also pop into your inbox that same day to let you know if they received a little extra love, thanks (a latte) to you.
So, what are you waiting for? Get to nominating right now! Then, be on the lookout for an email from the Blue Star Families team and tune in to the #BSFStarbucks hashtag on social media to see who else receives the love. Cheers to those who keep our nation strong!
