Sears' Heroes at Home Wish Registry

soldier_smoking.jpgWe just got word that Sears is taking donations for their Heroes at Home Wish Registry. What they do is take all the collected money and turn them into gift cards which they distribute among all of the military families that have signed up. We think this is great, we're all for it. Particularly when we think of how easy we have it compared to the guys (and gals) who have to spend Christmas an ocean away from their families. Seriously, think about that for a second.

Sears has set up a web page for the program here. It has letters from past participants and a couple videos. At the moment, there is almost $3,000,000 raised.

From Sears:

With thousands of active-duty military fathers and mothers away from their homes fighting for our country, Sears' Heroes at Home Wish Registry helps to bring the holidays home for many deserving families. Many families that were helped by last year's efforts shared their stories - this video is inspired by real letters from soldiers and their families:

You can help Sears as they fulfill military heroes' wishes this holiday season by making a contribution to the Wish Registry either in-store or online at (donations are accepted until Dec 31). This is a great way to give back this holiday season and say "thanks" to the nation's troops.

Sears' Heroes at Home Wish Registry has helped more than 51,000 military families and has raised more than $12.2 million. For many, the wishes fulfilled in years past have been simple and practical, including everything from warm clothes to new toys for their children to a Christmas tree and other holiday decorations for their homes.

Please note that donations made to the Wish Registry are not tax deductible and will be used to purchase Sears gift cards that will be equally distributed to all registered families.

kudos to good ol' Sears, I also read that they maintain benefits and pay the difference in salary for their employees in the military.
