Our Association is doing something very exciting – we are attempting to reach out to Ellen DeGeneres and The Ellen Show to ask her for help with promotion of our Operation Purple Programs! Crazy, right?! Want to get in on the fun?
Right now, Ellen is asking for military stories from military families, and guess what? We have tons of awesome stories from military kids who have attended our Operation Purple Camps, as well as one-of-a-kind stories from military families who have reconnected at our Family Retreats, and even unique stories from military caregivers at Healing Adventures.
Each month, we will be sending our special purple packages full of these stories, along with information about our Association, to The Ellen Show so they can see our unwavering dedication to military families. More importantly, we want to show Ellen the need for support and promotion in order to continue our Operation Purple Programs.
Here’s where you can join in:
If you have attended an Operation Purple Program, we want your story! Email us at OPC@militaryfamily.org, and we will send your story to Ellen in our special purple packages each month!
And look! Ellen DeGeneres is already showing her support for military families by dancing at our Operation Purple Family Retreat in Jackson, Wyoming!
But what if you haven’t been a part of our Operation Purple Programs? NO PROBLEM! Your chance is here! We are now accepting applications for our 2014 Operation Purple Camp for kids!
If you’d like your child to attend an Operation Purple Camp, now is your time! Does your child have a parent who has recently returned from, preparing for deployment, or is currently deployed? Consider giving your child an awesome opportunity to meet other military kids and spend time having a great summer camp experience. For more information, or to apply, visit our website!
Do you think The Ellen Show will notice us?!
