Facebook Partners With Military Mama Network For Its ‘More Together’ Campaign

On Dec. 3, 2019, Giving Tuesday, Facebook unveiled its Facebook Holiday Pop-up in New York City. A brick-and-mortar shop focused on bringing people together through the act of giving.

 

This weekend two more will open in Chicago and Los Angeles and provide visitors with an immersive giving experience. And what better cause to donate to than our military families? This year, Facebook is spotlighting the Military Mama Network Facebook Group, that was recently featured in the tear-jerking Facebook TV commercial, which ensures military families and veterans in need experience the magic and joy of the holiday season. Visitors will be able to stop by Facebook’s Holiday Pop-ups to give to U.S. military families and veterans in need this holiday season. 100% of funds raised will go directly to the Military Mama Network to support the work they are doing to help military families and veterans around the country.

 

With over 17,000 members, Military Mama Network is a space for relatives and friends of service members to come together to share advice and support. The group aims to alleviate both the financial and emotional burdens often faced by military families and veterans. And we got a change to talk to its founder, Geriann Wiesbrook!

 

Geriann Wiesbrook is the Admin of the Military Mama Network Facebook Group. As the mother of a son in the armed forces, Geriann started the Military Mama Network in 2014 when she needed a support network, herself.

 

Check out out interview with her over on Instagram and read on for where you can visit the pop ups!
