Dollar General Honors Military as Every Day Heroes in June!



In celebration of our nation’s brave soldiers who have returned from service and are making a difference in their communities, Procter & Gamble® has teamed up with Dollar General to honor our military as Every Day Heroes in June. Just as our military families have made a commitment to our country, Dollar General is committed to delivering valuable savings on America’s favorite brands every day.

I love that Dollar General is taking the time and effort to honor our military. It is so important to make sure that we celebrate all that they do to keep this country safe.

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.

I applaud Sparky for all his work and hope that he continues his success!

As always, Dollar General and P&G have a special gift for one of my lucky readers. Remember that can use P&G brandSAVER® coupons at Dollar General to get high-quality P&G products at great prices.

The special prize includes:

· Gain Fireworks- In-Wash Scent Booster for your Laundry

· Gain Bar – Dryer Bar Lasts up to 3 Months

· Febreze Car Clip – Eliminates Odors and Releases a Fresh Scent

· $10 Dollar General Gift Card

  1. My everyday hero is my husband. He works so hard everyday sometimes 6 days a week long hours to take care of the family. He always gives of himself and never expects anything in return. He is very strong and good hearted and that's what makes him special. Thanks so much for hosting this giveaway!

Lots of days he has to carry her in and out of her treatment appointments. He takes care of their son and the house with a smile on his face. I love that he has grown into such a strong and caring man.
