Buy Something at Sears
I know I needed this reminder since Sears isn't always my first choice.
Make a purchase with your Sears card* or make a contribution of $1, $5 or $10 and make a difference in the lives of servicemen and women and their families. Heroes at Home assists families of military personnel and veterans by making critical repairs and modifications to their homes.
Heroes at Home is a program developed through the combined efforts of Sears Holdings Management Corporation and Rebuilding Together to help improve the lives of injured American Veterans and their families by making repairs, improvements or modifications to their homes. Heroes at Home is a service mark owned by Sears Brands, LLC. 100% of your donation will benefit Rebuilding Together, a 501(c)(3) organization. Your entire cash donation is eligible for tax deduction treatment for U.S. Federal tax purposes. For more information on Rebuilding Together, visit http://www.rebuildingtogether.org/.
* Between November 9 and December 28, for each purchase you make with your Sears card, Sears Holdings Management Corporation will make a donation to Rebuilding Together up to a total of $1,000,000.
There are other companies that have also been respectful of their employees. This information can be found at Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve. While I won't tell anyone what to do, it would be nice if we could do business with the companies that treat their employees the way that we would all like to be treated ... especially in this holiday (gift giving) time of year.
