(OPEN):
THE U-S-O IS PARTNERING WITH CHEERIOS, TO SEND THANKS AND SUPPORT TO OUR NATION'S MILITARY-FAMILIES--WHO SACRIFICE WHEN THEIR LOVED-ONES ARE SERVING.  SPECIALLY MARKED BOXES OF CHEERIOS NOW FEATURE "CHEER"-POSTCARDS:  SIMPLY CUT OUT THE PRE-ADDRESSED CARD, WRITE A MESSAGE ON THE BACK, ADD A STAMP, AND MAIL IT.  THE U-S-O WILL DISTRIBUTE THE "CHEER"-POSTCARDS TO MILITARY-FAMILIES.  SLOAN GIBSON IS THE U-S-O'S C-E-O...

(GIBSON):
"WHILE SENDING A MESSAGE OF THANKS IS A SIMPLE GESTURE, TO THESE FAMILIES, RECEIVING A 'CHEER'-POSTCARD WILL BE A WELCOME-REMINDER THAT OTHERS CARE.  IT'S AN EASY WAY FOR US TO TOUCH THE LIVES OF MILITARY-FAMILIES.  ANOTHER WAY [THAT] SENDING 'CHEER' HELPS SUPPORT MILITARY-FAMILIES IS THAT--FOR EACH POSTCARD [THAT'S] RECEIVED FROM A SPECIALLY MARKED CEREAL-BOX--CHEERIOS WILL DONATE ONE DOLLAR, TO THE U-S-O, FOR PROGRAMS THAT SUPPORT [BOTH] OUR TROOPS AND THEIR FAMILIES.
"

(CLOSE):
CHEERIOS HAS ALREADY DONATED 150-THOUSAND DOLLARS, AND WILL DONATE UP TO AN ADDITIONAL 100-THOUSAND DOLLARS, TO THE U-S-O--BASED UPON THE NUMBER OF POSTCARDS RECEIVED BY NOVEMBER 30TH, 2012.  FOR MORE INFORMATION, VISIT "CHEERIOS"-DOT-COM.
