Dove Men+Care partners with Operation Homefront (Giveaway, 4 winners)

10 Flares 10 Flares ×

This giveaway post about the Dove Men+Care partnership with Operation Homefront to support military families in need is sponsored. ¬†Opinions are my own. ¬†Dove Men+Care is working to reunite 300 military members with their families. ¬†With so many families apart because of military efforts around the globe, it’s nice to see the happy endings, when families get to reunite- so often we see and hear about the sad stories and the unhappy endings. ¬†Below, you can see John meeting his infant son for the first time. ¬†(There’s a video and you won’t want to miss it but you also will want a tissue. Or three). ¬†Even if you don’t personally know a family who’s got a loved one serving in the military apart from their family, you can easily see from this short video what an impact it can, will and does have on the family members- both at home and away. ¬†It’s a great reminder of the sacrifices others are giving when they have loved ones who serve in the military.

Dove’s long been a brand we use in our home, although my husband only recently discovered the Men+Care line and he’s been very pleased with all that he’s tried. ¬†I like that when we are purchasing the Dove Men+Care line, we are able to support Dove in it’s mission to care for our troops with Operation Homefront. ¬†My husband is happy with the price, quality and performance of the men’s care line.

  • The video makes me feel both ends of the emotional scale. Sad and happy. Sad that someone, most of all a parent, should be separated from anyone they love. Happy that they would choose serving their country over it.
