November 2018 Monthly Newsletter
According to our #BSFSurvey, one-third of milfams said their child had experienced sleep issues as a result of their parent’s deployment. We think that’s one-third too many! And Sleep Number is helping us reduce that number. Win one of 12 Sleep Number SleepIQ Kids beds in our #GoodNightMilKid sweepstakes.
Support Military Families by Shopping
Did you know you can help Blue Star Families support military families… even while you’re doing your holiday shopping? (Seriously!)
Starbucks for Veterans Day
This Veterans Day, head to Starbucks where all veterans, active duty members, and military spouses can receive a free tall hot-brewed coffee. And, for each hot-brewed coffee purchased on Veterans Day (November 11), Starbucks will donate 15 cents to Blue Star Families. Help us spread the word!
Stationed in Kansas, this #BlueStarKid has moved 5 times in 5 years. Each transition is hard, but he’s learned how to make it fun. Meet Matthew and discover how he rocks being the new kid on the block. Join our network and see how your kids can do the same: https://bluestarfam.org/join #BlueStarStories

Experience the magic of live theatre with your family this year at a Blue Star Theatre. We have you covered from coast to coast! Here are but a few of the many family-friendly productions that will be hitting the stage in the coming months. (Keep in mind that all Blue Star Theatres offer discounts to military families but ticket prices and availability vary. Check out each theatre’s website for special pricing or call the box office.) With this many wonderful plays for young audiences on the schedule, we know you will find something to fit your family’s taste.
