CBS

Honor Our Military and Families

Posted on Jan 29, 2013 03:55pm

CBS Cares is proud to have teamed up with the NFL for a Super Bowl PSA that honors our military and their families.

As the PSA notes, it is their sacrifice that makes it possible for all of us to enjoy events such as the Super Bowl. The PSA also encourages the over 100 million viewers of the Super Bowl on CBS to unite and show their appreciation - by texting $10 to Wounded Warrior project.

We hope you will take a moment to honor our heroes by texting "WWP" to 50555 to donate $10 (message and data rates apply). And if you are interested in learning more about the mission Wounded Warrior Project in raising awareness and helping wounded service members, please click on this link: http://www.woundedwarriorproject.org/.
