I'm definitely a patriotic person. I hear the national anthem, see an American Flag, think of the sacrifices that our military makes and I get chills. The Fourth of July is one of my favorite holidays. Not only does it symbolize that old fashioned American family fun that I love to idealize but, it's one of those days that gives people that nudge to remember how great our country is, what our country has gone through and all the men and women who have gotten us here and continue to serve our country.

In honor of July 4th, one of my favorite companies, Pillow Pets, is introducing a new pet. The limited edition adorable red, white and blue dog is just like the other cute pets. He's made of the same super soft chenille, amazingly comfortable, folds to create a pillow or a stuffed animal but, he's different in one huge way. For every one of these guys that is purchased, $5 will be donated to Scholarships for Military Children, an organization that provides scholarships to the children of military personnel. 

My half-sister and half-brother are children of an active duty military serviceman. And organization like Scholarships for Military Children is very special to me. Knowing that there are groups out there that look out for the children of our soldiers is an amazing thing. Knowing that Pillow Pets is supporting this group makes me love them even more.

Only 3,000 of these limited edition Pillow Pets are available. Get yours HERE!
