Sears: Salute to Heroes & Giftcard GIVEAWAY (ends 9/22!)

Posted on: 09/18/2010

As most of you may recall, my Hubby was deployed over this past Christmas Holiday. I can still remember the look on the faces of the children as, a week before Christmas, they had to hug their Dad and tell him that they would miss him, through the tears and screams.

I wasn’t sure how we were going to manage another Christmas without him here to celebrate with us. One of my buddies called me one night to share an awesome program through Sears called Heroes at Home.

Heroes at Home is a program that is geared towards assisting military families, and during the Christmas Holidays, families who have registered on their website have the opportunity of receiving at least three (3) giftcards to be used at one of their stores, to include K-Mart. The monies used to fund these cards are donated by some awesome families across the states, who are willingly to seed into the lives of someone else.

During the Christmas Holiday & New Year, we received giftcards, on behalf of Sears and the MANY families out there that wanted to make sure families of deployed members had a great holiday while their loved ones were away.

Last year, I came up with the idea of hiding the gifts within huge, black trashbags (you can see them in the pictures), to avoid the children finding them. Using the giftcards, we purchased each of them new bedding! I believe there’s a shot of one of the sets near the fireplace.

I’d give it to my friend who is always doing for others. She just got a new job and could use some new work clothes.

So many heroes in my family some in the Military and some in different ways but I would like to recognize my husband who is a teacher and a real leader in our community.My husband teaches music to young kids that have behavior problems.He really makes a difference in those kids.Every time we walk into a store different kids come running up and hugging him.I have met so many mothers who say Richard has really given their child a reason to wake up. He never lets anyone brag on him and he never complains about anything.With his patience and understanding he has been helping kids for 8 years.

If i won i would give it to our EMS supervisor- he does a great job, after he gives me the flu shot… 🙂

I would surprise my parents. While they are none of the above they helped me out this summer. I had an accident in the kitchen this summer with a pot of boiling water. I received 2’nd degree burns on a little over 30% of my body. My parents were there for me and let me stay with them and they helped take care of me and my son while I recovered. They also helped cover some of my medical bills that I otherwise would not have been able to afford. It just goes to show that even though we grow up our parents never lose their love for us.

I just signed up for emails. Thanks!

I would give it to my oldest son who after 7 years of working and going to school graduated from college this past August

I would love to surprise my hubby with a gift card. He is a hero to the students he teaches each day!

My husband, an Army Ranger (medic), was away for 22 months and recently returned. He missed almost 2 years of our son’s life which was so difficult. Now that he’s returned home, he could definitely use some “civilian” clothes, so this would be a great opportunity for him to get some! I would love to hand over this gift card to him. 🙂

I just subscribed via google reader – yay! So glad I found you! 🙂

my husband is in training to be a police officer, so i’d surprise him with a nice new button down shirt from sears that he could wear when he’s not on duty!

Kay n Hubby FL
Hello and welcome! I am a military spouse & mom of four boys and two girls, ages 1 to 10, oldest diagnosed with autism. We're located in the Charleston, SC area. My family and my faith are very important to me. Since I've started using coupons I have been able to save more money and become a better steward of my household. I hope to seed into the general public, and our military families, how to spend less and get more.

Get ready to take your grocery & household spending to a whole new level! Couponing is not only a means to seed but an avenue to harvest...both opportunities are endless & a joy to delight in.

I welcome feedback and comments! Thank you again!
