Oct. 31, 2011, Lehi, UT- This Thanksgiving LowVARates.com is giving away 50 free Thanksgiving Dinners to deserving military families in all 50 states. The dinners will be donated and delivered to the families in each individual state.
The contest is intended to help military families in need that otherwise would not receive a nice Thanksgiving dinner for their family.
The employees of LowVARates.com have stepped up and decided to donate a portion of their paycheck to help these families receive a Thanksgiving Dinner. Many employees have offered very generous donations to ensure this contest and promotion will be a success.
The winner of the giveaway in each state will receive a free family dinner on Thanksgiving Day November 24, 2011. LowVARates.com will arrange the full details with the winning family and ensure they are completely compensated for their Thanksgiving feast.
Owner of LowVARates.com, Eric Kandell, hopes the contest will give deserving military families across the nation a nice Thanksgiving dinner.
“We are so thankful for the service our troops give that we want to give back to 50 military families nationwide,” Kandell said. “Everybody deserves a Thanksgiving feast and we want to make that a reality for many of our military families in need.”
Many military families spend holidays, like Thanksgiving, with a family member deployed on military service. This can make the holiday season a particularly tough time to have a loved one away from home. Thousands of troops are currently serving deployments nationwide. These families are great to consider and nominate for the Thanksgiving Dinner contest.
“It is really hard to have a loved one away during the holidays,” Kandell said. “There are a lot of military families that could use a free thanksgiving dinner and we just need our fan base to help us find those families.”
The contest is running through Thanksgiving Day and many Face book and Twitter posts will keep company fans up to date on where LowVARates.com needs help. LowVARates.com is now accepting nominations for military families in need.
Families can nominate themselves or another military family in need. We need one military family from all 50 states. To submit an entry for the contest, please submit a 100-300 word essay to PR@LowVARates.com and tell us why the military family should be selected.

“If we can just help one military family have a happy Thanksgiving that will be worth it,” Kandell said. “This will definitely be the largest and most elaborate contest we have ever run, but we feel it will be well worth the time and effort.”
