Everything Inside of the NOVEMBER Brave Crate!!!
After helping military spouses count down thousands of months of deployment there’s one thing we’ve learned for sure: it is always better to count down in community. Whether or not you’re surrounded by fellow military families locally, we know that there’s power in connecting with and learning from others who are counting down along side of us- and the online world gives us a great way to do it!
This month, Brave Crate is celebrating the third annual PILLAR- Digital Retreat for Deployment Countdowns. This 3 day event is designed to create space for military spouses everywhere to join together to learn, share, and support one another during countdown seasons. Each item in this month’s countdown box is tied to one of the exciting workshops you can expect to see at PILLAR- and we hope it inspires you to get connected at this year’s retreat! With more than 25 workshops, thousands of dollars in giveaways, and non-stop community this event will leave you inspired to make every moment of your countdown count!
