Dollar General/P&G Honor Military Heroes + Giveaway!

Throughout the month of June, in recognition of the men and women of the U.S. military and their families, Dollar General® is teaming up with Procter & Gamble® to honor those true Every Day Heroes who have made sacrifices for their families, their communities and their country.

Dollar General truly values these heroes and their experiences and offers many career opportunities for returning veterans. Dollar General is the winner of the 2011 Military Officers Association of America Distinguished Service Award and was recognized in GI Jobs magazine’s list of Most Military Friendly Employers.

I love that Dollar General and P&G are honoring our military families. The sacrifices made by these men and women are huge and I do not think they get enough credit for all they give up to keep us safe.

As part of this campaign honoring our troops, Dollar General is giving you the opportunity to upload a video about your special military hero. Upload a video and tell the world why your hero is special. Head on over to the Every Day Heroes site and tell the world why your hero is so special. This is such a great way to honor that special someone in your life!

And thanks to P&G and Dollar General I have a wonderful prize package that includes: a Swiffer® 360° Duster, a set of Pringles® red computer speakers, Old Spice® Champion Deodorant, Tide® sample packs and a Dollar General reusable shopping bag. WOO! What a great prize! To win, just enter on the Rafflecopter widget below.
