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!
“Change A Light. Show Your Support.”
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
