Military Giveaway BIG Success!!
This past summer, we hosted a Military Family Giveaway & Getaway with a GRAND PRIZE valued at $10,000. Military family participants were to submit a video or 500 word essay explaining why they deserve to win. We received many entries, and we want to thank each and every one of you! Your stories were very touching and we appreciate what you do for our country, as well as the sacrifices you’ve made.
Our Military Family Giveaway and Getaway crowned a winner on October 16th, 2013 at the World Market Center in Las Vegas! Amanda Kuder and husband, Russell Dewight Kuder E4 SPC, have received our GRAND PRIZE valued at $10,000. As new parents to their first child, we’re excited to gift them some amazing products for their new baby girl!
Amanda always encouraged Russell to reenlist in the Army in order to live his dream – to serve our country. Shortly after Russell enlisted, the pair were married, but could not afford a honeymoon. Just a few days after the ceremony Amanda’s father, an Army Vet himself, passed away in a tragic accident at the young age of 39. Amanda was also pregnant around that time, but after a permanent change of station she lost the baby. Going through these hardships were difficult to deal with, but Russell had a duty to his country and Amanda supported him all the way.
Russell is now deployed in Afghanistan. With their newborn daughter, Amanda stays at home tending to the baby. She loves her husband and considers him a great role model for their daughter. Russell is honest, loyal, caring, and a hard worker. He takes pride in what he does and is willing to help anyone. While living far from family and friends, they did not throw a baby shower and bought only used baby products that they could afford. Thankfully, with help from our AMAZING sponsors, PLB has sent Amanda and Russell a TON of NEW baby gear and furniture and will be sending them on the honeymoon they deserve!!
Congratulations again to Russell and Amanda! Your story is really inspiring, and we admire you for your bravery. Thank you so much for serving our country!
