Thank you, Gratefulchics! From their website: "Gratitude can transform your life! These beads make the perfect gift for anyone in the military or a Veteran that you want to thank for their service. These Patriotic Grateful Beads are even MORE SPECIAL than our other ones. With your purchase of this particular Patriotic strand, we donate one to a soldier every time. It is BOGO in a new way - Buy One Give One. We partnered with a well known charity called Operation Gratitude."
