I just saw this posted on my FB feed, and thought I’d share it with all of you. I’d never heard of this before, but for some Active Duty E4 and below and their family, you can get help with travel home for the holidays, thanks to a partnership between the nonprofit Armed Services YMCA and The Jack Daniel Distillery. (As a disclosure, I love Jack Daniel’s).
The program offers either a voucher for a plane ticket, limited to $400 per person; or a prepaid debit card for $100 per person for gas, lodging and food. Obviously it’s not going to cover the whole cost of travel, but anything helps.
This sounds like a fantastic idea; if you want to make a donation, they are being accepted at jdoperationridehome.com; donations are tax deductible.
