Gift Card Impressions is partnering with military support charity, Operation Gratitude, to create a tangible way to say thank you to Americas military. Gift Card Week provides consumers a way to show their appreciation to Americas Service Men and Women, past and present. In addition to the full value of the purchased gift cards benefiting the military recipients, Gift Card Impressions will also donate two percent of the total value of all gift cards sold from June 13 July 11 to Operation Gratitude for its military support programs.
The process is simple. Visit giftcardweek.com and purchase a gift card for someone who has served in the military. Then, customize this moving Military Appreciation Video for free. Finally, send the e-teaser thank you and let the Service Member know a gift card is on the way. Those who may not have an immediate military connection can also purchase a gift card to be included in an Operation Gratitude care package or purchase gift cards for any recipient and still support the military knowing that Gift Card Impressions will be donating a percentage back to Operation Gratitude.
John Adams, formerly an active duty captain in the United States Marine Corps and currently the Director of Strategic Operations for Operation Gratitude, knows first-hand the difference even the smallest gesture can make.
To feel that your service is recognized is extremely gratifying. Just to know that people appreciate what you do for love of country, makes your personal sacrifice worth it, said Adams. Americans want to show their gratitude, but often arent sure how. Gift Card Week is a simple, yet meaningful way for people to say thank you to the military.
Operation Gratitude founder, Carolyn Blashek, concurs, In keeping with Operation Gratitudes mission of providing hands-on opportunities to say thank you to our nations heroes, we are thankful for Gift Card Weeks support. We have seen first-hand how notes, care packages and good wishes can truly help lift the spirits of our military members and their families.
Those interested in participating can visit giftcardweek.com and purchase a gift card from leading retailers and restaurants for a friend, family member or neighbor who has served. Gift cards may also be purchased for any occasion or recipient with two percent of the value of every gift card sold going to Operation Gratitude.
