WUC Wednesday

As coupon users we are constantly finding deals that get us free products. Some of us have stockpiled so much stuff that we have ran out of space. Well, why not donate some of your freebies to our troops?

WeUseCoupons.com is officially partnering with Operation Troop Aid in February and March!!! Operation Troop Aid is going to be sending 1000 boxes to troops in Afghanistan & Iraq and is looking for help filling those boxes!

Operation Troop Aid was started in 2005 by Mark Woods. Earlier in 2001, he was deployed on the USS Enterprise during the 9/11 attacks and watched with his shipmates as the second plane struck the World Trade Center. During that deployment before 9/11, Mark served as the coordinator for a concert on-board the USS Enterprise by Country Artist, Chad Brock. Soon after the attacks, Garth Brooks wanted to have a concert on their ship and Mark was assigned to coordinate that event. After that, Mark was inspired to use the entertainment initiatives for charity! Operational Troop Aid was born and Mark has worked tirelessly to send over one million dollars in care packages or product to the troops stationed overseas!
