Wisconsinmade.com Sends a Taste of Wisconsin to US Troops
MADISON, WISCONSIN (7/25/11) –Wisconsinmade.com owner Linda Remechatis is proud to offer a selection of gifts designed for shipment to military bases in her online gourmet food and gift store, but this summer, she wants to do more to support American troops. “As our day-to-day lives continue here in the United States, it is easy to forget that young men and women are serving in harms way. I feel it is important to recognize the sacrifices made by the military and their families,” said Remeschatis. To show appreciation for the military, Wisconsinmade.com is donating 10% of sales from August 1st to August 10th to Operation Gratitude, a non-profit organization that sends care packages to military personnel deployed overseas. Additionally, shoppers will be encouraged to send Military APO/FPO Gifts directly to Operation Gratitude, or to friends and family who are service members.
