Every Day Heroes
I feel so blessed to have gotten to know so many men and women who serve our country during the time my husband was in the Coast Guard. Getting to hang out with a bunch of Coasties is definitely a unique experience! While they are just normal people, like anyone else, there is something incredibly special about them at the same time. That anyone would be willing to accept the risks and the sacrifices to serve our country is something that puts me a little in awe-even as someone who was a military spouse for so long! All of our service members really are every day heroes–and I love it when businesses recognize and honor them for this!
Procter & Gamble® has teamed up with Dollar General to honor our military as Every Day Heroes in June. Hopefully you picked up the June P&G Brand Saver on the 2nd–if not be sure to mark your calendar to pick it up next month! I love getting mine each time! There are so many great money saving coupons on many of the products I already love and use on a daily basis, and when you pair them with businesses like Dollar General you can get some really great deals!
To celebrate and honor military service, Dollar General chose Sparky Edwards as its Every Day Hero for June 2013. Sparky exemplifies the Every Day Hero. He is a retired, decorated military veteran who served in South Korea and in Iraq. Once an at-risk teenager, Sparky turned his life around with the help of a National Guard youth academy. The fresh start helped him earn his GED and enter the military. Today he is a successful business owner, pursuing his PhD and paying it forward by volunteering to mentor at-risk teenagers. How inspirational is that? I just love hearing success stories that continue after their military service ended!
Some of the products that I love from P&G are shown above! I love in-wash scent bosters that you pour in and leave like Gain Fireworks–so fun and convenient–plus the little beads are cool! This one smells really good too-which is always a plus when doing hubby and my laundry (remember he requests the “smelly stuff”)! Febreeze is one of those “can’t live without it” products in our house with two messy little kids and 3 dogs! Pee yew! I’m excited to use this clip in my car to keep it smelling super sweet too! I’m excited to try out the Gain dryer bar–I’ve actually never tried one before but the idea looks simply genuis–I’m not sure why I haven’t tried it before!
