Glossies Made Me Do It: Woman’s Day May 2019
In the May 2019 issue of Woman’s Day, there is a fun article all about ways you can celebrate Memorial Day (Monday, May 27 this year) and I decided to utilize one of their ideas to give back to those who served for our country. My brother was in the Army, so anything related to the military is extra important to me.
Memorial Day Flowers
Out of the six ideas in the magazine, I decided to go with Donate Flowers. You visit the website Memorial Day Flowers and click the Donate button. There are options for various amounts, starting at $5, or you can put in your own amount. You can put in the reason you’re donating, and have that show up on the website with or without your name if you like as well.
If you donate $5, then five flowers will be placed on soldier’s graves. There’s a whole list of the graveyards on the website if you’re curious where they go. I chose the $5 option, and then I agreed to pay the 3% transaction fee (it was 15 cents) so that 100% of my money went toward providing the flowers. Definitely worth it!
No, it’s not a ton of money, but it’s something, and five graves will now have flowers in honor of Memorial Day. I definitely recommend checking out the website, or taking a look at the other ways to celebrate Memorial Day in Woman’s Day magazine.
What do you think? Will you be donating? How do you celebrate Memorial Day?
