Layton, UT, December 12, 2009 --(PR.com
)-- Christmas is just around the corner and the season of giving is sweeping through the nation. As the famous carol states, “It’s the most wonderful time of the year.”
LowVARates is adding to the Christmas spirit this season by providing a military family with up to $250 of Christmas presents.
Please submit a 200 word essay telling LowVARates why the military family should receive the prize. Essays must be submitted by Dec. 22nd at midnight to enter the contest. The goal of the giveaway is to help a military family going through tough times receive some good fortune.
According to the Department of Defense, the U.S. military is deployed in over 150 countries with around 25% of its active duty soldiers serving in foreign countries.
President Obama just announced another 30,000 troops are deploying to Afghanistan in the next six months. Many of the troops will spend Christmas and other holiday’s fighting for the freedoms we enjoy.
The holiday season and particularly Christmas can be a difficult time for the men and women of the U.S. Armed Forces and the families they leave behind.
“Many valiant men and women don’t get to spend Christmas with their loved ones,” Owner of LowVARates Eric Kandell said. “Hopefully the giveaway can provide a deserving military family a Merry Christmas.”
LowVARates recently provided the Chesney family with a free Thanksgiving Dinner. The husband Tim is deployed in Iraq and missed his first Thanksgiving with his wife and two daughters.
“The Thanksgiving dinner giveaway was such a great success that we decided we wanted to do another contest for Christmas,” Kandell said.
