We have some amazing people in the Savings.com DealPro network. From the blogger that's a total thrift store fashionista, to the somewhat "extreme" couponer - there's one thing in common with all of our DealPros: they all care about others and want to give back in any way possible! 

As I was perusing the DealPro blog content this week as it relates to giving to Military families, my heart was extremely touched and I hope yours will be as well as you read these posts. 

We all like to save money, but we remain true to the fact that we all want to help others above all! Read on and be inspired. 

Lynette Rice from CleverlySimple.com (photo above courtesy of Lynette) has set it up so that her readers can help her support a Military base overseas. Her readers can
 mail her their expired coupons, and she will send them overseas to a base! 

If you're really wanting to get involved, Dian at Grocery Shop for Free has some great tips for getting involved, and how you can make sure you're sending the right kinds of coupons. 

And if you're looking for even more programs to get involved with (you got lotsa coupons, eh?), check out Mary's resources at Mission To Save

Looking for a group of couponers in your area to create a swap with, or group for sending off expired coupons to the Military? Join us at a local grocery savings workshop in your area so that you can connect with fellow couponers and give back together!
