Next week theCHIVE will touch down in Honolulu with 14 WWII Veterans, many of them returning to their old battleground for the very first time.
The morning of December 7th we will join the Commemoration Ceremony to remember those who gave their lives during the attack on Pearl Harbor.
Prior to that, on December 5th we will be bringing those veterans to Hilton Hawaiian Village for one very special evening where both our active service members and civilians will get to meet our Greatest Generation.
Tickets are available RIGHT HERE.
The meetup will go from 6-9pm and it's open to everybody, not just our soldiers and sailors. The event space is huge so we're going to keep the tickets available as long as possible.
See you soon, Hawaii

We're gearing up for Chive Fest Dallas, and to celebrate the final stop on our tour, we've teamed up with the Texas Chive Chapters for the next Chive Nation tee!
It's been a long time coming for this one. A portion of proceeds will go towards Waves of Impact, a non-profit that introduces individuals facing exceptional challenges in their lives to the thrill of being in the ocean and riding waves.
Get your Texas Keep Calm RIGHT HERE.
It was a little over a year ago when Chive Chapters began popping up all over the world. A bunch of awesome folks coming together to raise a glass, share a laugh and make a difference in their community. Since then, Chive Nation has grown into a global phenomenon with millions of members coming together to support a local cause. And we're doing the exact same thing today. Each state KCCO benefits a local charity chosen by their Chive Chapter.
If you pick up a KCCO Michigan, you're helping the Miracle League, an organization that provides children with disabilities an opportunity to play baseball as a team member in an organized league. If you score a brand-new Oklahoma KCCO, you'll be helping the Special Olympics of Oklahoma, which provides year-round sports training and athletic competition in a variety of Olympic-type sports for children and adults with intellectual disabilities.
Score a tee and help a local charity. Simple as that.
There is a very limited amount of shirts available and this will be the last time some of these design run.

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 email@example.com 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...

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.
