joe says “code grtd”

Joe has a great appreciation for those men and women who put on a uniform and put their lives on the line to protect Americans.  That’s why he’s spreading the word about Code Gratitude, a new, mission-driven company in Maine dedicated to showing appreciation to those protectors who serve us every day by offering special deals and discounts from local businesses. connects supportive businesses with the men and women in law enforcement, fire, EMS and military, past and present. Protectors benefit from the savings while local businesses grow- it’s a win win. Plus, 10% of a business’s membership fee will be used to support the Code Gratitude Scholarship Fund awarded to Maine high school seniors who are joining the military, studying fire science, criminal justice or going into other future careers.

Joe applauds the creative thinking that led to Code Gratitude and offers his own gratitude to everyone who risks their own lives to protect Mainers and all Americans. He urges you to find more about this organization here.
