Nominate Your Deployed Soldier to Receive Special Gifts This Holiday

Nationwide, August 13 Through September 11, Things Remembered Is Accepting Names of Active Duty Soldiers to Be Featured Recipients of Personalized Holiday Gifts

CLEVELAND, OH--(Marketwire - Aug 1, 2012) -  This holiday season, you can nominate a soldier to receive some very special gifts. From August 13 through September 11, Patriot Day, Things Remembered will be collecting names of active duty soldiers to be featured gift recipients during the 2012 holiday season. 

Nominations can be made by visiting Facebook.com/ThingsRemembered.

Once the nomination process is complete, three nominees will be chosen for each Things Remembered store location. Shoppers who don't have a deployed soldier to honor this holiday will be able to purchase gifts for one of their store's featured soldiers. Any purchase made from October 29 through November 20 and sent to a featured soldier -- or any other active duty solider -- will receive a 25 percent discount on both the product and engraving, plus free shipping.

"The work of our United States military is something that should be commended every day," said Amy Myers, Vice President of Creative Services for Things Remembered. "But during the holidays, when many active duty soldiers cannot be with their families, it's even more important to recognize their contributions to keeping this country safe and secure.

"That's why this year, we are trying to make it a bit easier to send a personal message to members of the armed forces. We hope that by offering free shipping and 25 percent discounts on all engraved gifts sent to military bases, more people will be able to send special messages of appreciation, and express the true gratitude in their hearts."

Featured soldier nominations can be made by visiting facebook.com/ThingsRemembered. The nomination period is from August 13 through September 11, Patriot Day. For a complete listing of store locations and available products, visit ThingsRemembered.com
