Memorial Day is the unofficial start of Summer, barbecue season, and beach season. But much more importantly, it’s when we honor military members who died protecting the freedoms that all Americans share. Memorial Day is a time to remember our fallen heroes and support the families they left behind.
For the entire Memorial Day weekend (Saturday 5/27 to Monday 5/29) we’re donating $1.00 for every Blackwood™ For Men product sold on our website to the National Military Family Association. The NMFA has been helping families of veterans for nearly half a century. It was started in 1969 by a small group of military wives who wanted to make sure their widowed friends were fully taken care of. Today, the group offers scholarships for military spouses, retreats for injured vets and their families, and a wide range of support services. They also have an A rating from charitywatch.org for having low overhead and a high percentage of fundraising going toward charitable activities. So more of every donation goes toward those who need it most.
We know this is only a small initiative for families who have earned and deserve all the support they can get. But it’s just one of many efforts we will be making to assist people in need, and with your help it will only get bigger.
By the way, if you want to help this worthy cause even more, you can stop by their website and make a donation. Any amount is welcome!
