So it’s getting late here and I’m going through theCHIVE submission box. Whenever we launch The Originals, there’s always an uptick of emails from Chivers who wanted to RAK their friends in the Armed Forces an Original but didn’t get to their computers in time or simply can’t afford it. Many of those soldiers and sailors are in a whole other time zone themselves with no fixed address.
So let’s do something about this. I’m going to RAK a healthy number of KCCO’s and BFM’s to our service men and women – like, a really healthy number (my accountant called me “a financially irresponsible boy scout. I like it.”. It was a real moment.
If you know an active service member or veteran, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org on his/her behalf and we’ll email you a backlink to the free ‘Originals’. Feel free to include their story. We are assuming all costs except for shipping. You must receive an email back confirming the order. If you don’t know the RAK recipient’s address, send the package to yourself and please be sure you get it to them. This is the internet honor system. It’s flawless!
We’ve done this before with the Military KCCO’s but this is a whole other enchilada, I have no idea what’s about to happen so please understand we do have a sorta’ limited amount of shirts to give away and I’m half drunk at the moment. I’ll update this page when the shirts are gone.
RAK away. I’m sure your friends will more than appreciate it. It’s the small things after all…
John n’ Leo
UPDATE: Thanks so much for all the heart warming emails. I gotta’ close this awesome little science experiment down now. If you’re one of the service men or women who gets a package, you’ve got some good friends out there looking after you.
