I am thrilled to be able to be able to start the Military Support Series up again by highlighting CK Mondavi and their giving to the Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund. It is no surprise that this blog would jump at the opportunity to share when a civilian company chooses to give back to the Military. It is something that I think is very important, important for our country as a whole. With the days of the Vietnam War not too far removed from history, change has been coming. Our Military service members deserve honor and respect, no matter ones political views. They risk their lives, and volunteer for service that should be honored. It truly warms this MilSo's heart to see people give back and support this family that is the Military. It is becoming the rule rather than the exception with so many organizations out there giving back to the Military community.
It also doesn't hurt when one happens to really like the people giving back. CK Mondavi is the only American-made wine you can find in the supermarket for under $10. How about them apples?! It's a family run business, with Peter Mondavi, SR, a WWII Veteran, at the helm.
Between May and August CK Mondavi donates a portion of each sale to the Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund (up to $50,000). IFHF is a wonderful organization that gives back to the wounded and fallen military members and their families through Family Support, The Center for the Intrepid, National Intrepid Center for Excellence and NICoE Satellite Centers. I have personally visited one of these facilities and I can tell you that the service they provide is exactly what these service members need. It is unparalleled in its ability to provide 360degrees of care.
IFHF is entirely funded by public donations, and now wine lovers can do their part to give back too. Thankfully for those that are wine lovers, CK Mondavi has afforded one of my lucky winners to be entered into a grand prize drawing to have $500 donated to IFHF in their name. You can do so by sharing with me your story of military support. I will choose one of my readers, who shares their story, to be entered. I can't wait to hear your stories, because if I know the community of readers I have, they will be good.
