February 1st – National Freedom Day

Did you know that today (February 1st) is National Freedom Day?   It’s not technically a holiday – it’s  a day of observance that honors the signing of the resolution that proposed the 13th Amendment of the US Constitution to outlaw slavery.    President Harry S Truman signed a bill in 1948 that proclaims February 1st as National Freedom Day in the US and over the years, National Freedom Day has become a day to promote good will, equality and to appreciate freedom.

For National Freedom Day 2012, I propose that we all clean out our coupon binders and organizers and gather up all the coupons that expired on 1/31/2011 and mail them out to a military family, who serves our country and helps keep us free!

If you have not yet adopted an overseas military  family to mail your coupons to, you can do so here!
