#GreenLightAVet | Veterans Day Support Everyday


No Material Connection Disclosure

About a week ago I saw a commercial for a new Campaign sponsored by Walmart. It’s called #GreenLightAVet – the premise? To show everyday support of Veterans by simply switching 1 light outside our homes to green. The color Green means hope and well-being…

Once a soldier returns home and takes off that uniform at times it can be hard to tell them from the civilians. They know how to blend in and for us that means we may not know who they truly are. The heroes they have been and the gratefulness they deserve.

 

 

#GreenLightAVet is a way to let Veterans we may not even know see how much we appreciate them, their sacrifices and their service. As soon as I saw this campaign I knew I would be a part and share as much as possible. Not for payment but because I am in love with a Vet and I know that letting him know that what he did is appreciated means more than many of us realize.

How To #GreenLightAVet

Head over to your local WalMart and look for the #GreenLightAVet displays which are most likely place right near the from of the store.

Next take that little green bulb home and pick a place. You can light up your porch, garage, window or backyard. The point of #GreenLightAVet is to give Vets everywhere a visible sign of your support. That’s It!

My family and I always make Veterans Day something special and this year we were even able to add a bit of fun with these amazing #GreenLightAVet cupcakes I found while picking up my light bulbs…I can always count on WalMart to make things even more fun.

This year I choose to #GreenLightAVet to show my support and appreciation for the Vets around me and for the one I love the most. Make this Veterans Day one the Vets around you will never forget.. #GreenLightAVet

    I absolutely love this and will be heading to Walmart later to purchase one. I keep seeing the commercials and this just made me want to go right now. My husband is active duty and I know how the struggle can be for soldiers sometimes. Thank you for sharing!

      That’s great Samantha! It is so much fun to spread the word…I know how difficult it can be and how that one thank you from someone can make such a big difference. WE get to show our thanks this way and it’s so awesome! Thank YOU for joining it and don’t forget to snap a picture and share it with #GreenLightAVet 😀

      Hi Brooke! It is supported by Walmart but many other stores are showing support by selling the Green Lights including Lowes. It is really a great way to give a visible sign of our support…

    We picked one up as soon as I heard about it, too. It makes my husband smile each time he sees another green light shining outside of someone's home.

      It really is! I love how easy it is and you’re right they do I think that’s why I wanted to do this. It’s such a great way to refocus on what the day is really for and how to take it beyond 1 day…

    What a great way to support vets! When I go to Walmart next week I'll look for this display. I want to light up my front porch with a green light.

    • MrsTee Post author

      Isn’t it Alli?!! I knew I had to do it as soon as I saw it…that’s great! Don’t forget to share your porch with the hashtag #GreenLightAVet 😀

    I think this is a great way to support veterans and let them know that they're sacrifices don't go un-noticed. Military men and women gives so much, I think it's only fair to remind them how valued their service is.
