Washington, D.C. - The Military Spouse Foundation announced today its global campaign to inspire 10,000 military spouse career dreams. The Military Spouse Foundation (MSF) launched the initiative to bring awareness to its online career and business training and mentoring program for military spouses.

Military spouses often face challenges to maintaining a rewarding career such as frequent relocations and spouse deployments. The MSF wants to inspire spouses to dream about, prepare for, and find a career or entrepreneurial opportunity that fits their unique lifestyle. Spouses can share their dream by writing it on a Dream Card or submitting it digitally on the MSF website.

The Military Spouse Foundation team is also reaching out to celebrities, executives and successful entrepreneurs around the country to place a personalized “well wish” or “statement of support” onto 10,000+ MSF Dream cards that will be given to spouses for inspirational support throughout the campaign. The executive director of the organization, Roxanne Reed explains, “We are truly honored to have our community and business leaders share their words of inspiration, support and wisdom with military spouses.”

The 10,000 Dream Cards, once completed, will be showcased in the MSF Hall of Dreams mobile display that will travel to events on military bases around the country.
