Doing What’s Right During the Holiday Season

It’s so easy to lose focus on what’s most important once the holidays hit. Everyone is concerned about buying presents, what to make for the holiday meal and how much snow we’re going to get, but in reality, those things don’t matter as much as being with the people you love and helping those around you.

That’s why when I heard that  Kenmore and The Food Network’s Sunny Anderson launched Kenmore “Baking for the Troops” to send up to 250,000 cookies to deployed troops with messages of support from Americans, it really made me happy.

Every year, my mother sponsors a troop that is fighting for our country overseas, and I think it’s great that Kenmore is doing its part to make this holiday season a little bit better for our men and women in uniform. But the best part of this program is that we can all participate as well.

All you need to do is visit the Kenmore Facebook page and ask Kenmore to bake and ship a dozen cookies on your behalf. Also, when the 250,000 cookies are sent to the troops, the company will donate $50,000 to Heroes at Home Wish Registry* to assist military families in need stateside.

Are you doing anything during the holidays to help a charity, support the troops or something other act of kindness? Let us know in the comments.
