You Can Help Bring A Taste Of Home To Our Troops

I was approached and asked to share a super cool initiative with you. I want to say that I’m not getting paid to tell you about it, and I am getting nothing in return for writing this post other than feeling good for helping spread the word about a FANTASTIC way that you can help support our troops. And it’s not going to cost you a penny!

Flag Cake Recipe Taste of Home Magazine has partnered with The USO for a great initiative to give military families the chance to speak to their loved ones overseas!

All you have to do is click on the Flag Cake recipe on the Taste of Home website, and they will be donate 10¢ per click, which equals 2 minutes of talk time for service members overseas. This means that for every $1 raised (or for every ten clicks),  Taste of Home will provide 20 minutes of talk time for service members and their families.

Taste of Home will be donating up to $100,000 to the USO for this initiative! You can click through July 4th, Independence Day.

Want to make even more of a difference? Pass on the Flag Cake recipe link to friends and family for their viewing (and 10¢!) or donate directly to the USO at

Another way you can help? Create a post to help spread the word! You can even just copy this one and slap it on your site! Or tweet about this post or like it on Facebook. Give it a Google +1…heck, just help me spread the word!

I’m a HUGE fan of Taste of Home recipes, and also subscribe to the magazine. It’s one of the few magazines that I actually look forward to receiving. I’m so glad that I’m able to help them spread the word about such a fantastic opportunity to support our troops.
