A year ago today, BFF Entertainment and the American Freedom Foundation launched the BFF Bracelet Program in support of our troops. Twenty-five percent of every $10 bracelet purchase go to AFF in support of our veterans, active troops and their families (you can read more about AFF here). Every bracelet is unique, with an engraved number on the back that links you to someone in the armed forces. When you buy a bracelet, a matching one is sent to your new BFF overseas, and you can correspond with them through their online community. You're not only giving a charity financial support, but also emotional support to someone overseas.

This post is for my late great grandpa (Papa), who bravely served in the Navy as a Frogman during World War II. I'm forever grateful for having such a wonderful man in my life, and for the amazing men and women who have served and are serving our country. Please consider showing your support by purchasing a BFF bracelet here!
