ActiveForever supports “Project Patriot” with our “Charitable Check-out.”

‘Tis the season for charitable giving. And it’s no wonder. It’s a time-tested truism that people tend to hit their philanthropic peaks when they are at their happiest.

Yes, you are busy and yes, you are frazzled with a to-do list twice the size of  Santa’s. But you are talking to your beloveds more frequently, and everyday exchanging cards and gifts with friends.

Your hideous Christmas sweaters are now in style and what is normally a dismal block of pavement is adorned in twinkling garland and bows. Hot cocoa and candy are a dietary staple and once bitter kids are well-behaved. So naturally we can shell-out a dollar or two for the storefront Santa.

We have a lot of people to thank for these happy times, starting with the troops; especially those overseas.

In honor of these brave men and women, ActiveForever has joined with Daughters of the American Revolution to support “Project Patriot.”

This project makes the holidays a little brighter for our overseas servicemen and women by fulfilling their holiday “wish-lists.” These lists include everyday items such as Top Ramen, peanut butter, Campbell’s Soup, Slim Jims, “Extra” gum, Pop Tarts, etc.,

They are purchased directly for the troops with 100 percent of the donations received. D.A.R. packages and ships them in time for the holidays.

ActiveForever is thrilled about this wonderful cause and we thought you might be too, so we created our “Charitable Check-Out.” This makes donating to Project Patriot very easy and fast.

After you have made your selection and pressed the check-out button, you will be given the option to make a donation. The amount you choose will be added to your purchase total. That’s it!

This is just our way of remembering some very important people at this special time of year.

There are so many great ways to give this holiday season and this is just one of them. We know that no matter how you choose to be charitable, you will be making someone’s season very bright.

Happy  Holidays!
