6th Anniversary Re-Cap: A Celebration of Military Spouses

6th Anniversary Re-Cap: A Celebration of Military Spouses

June 2021 marked Charliemadison Originals’ sixth anniversary and six years of giving back to military families around the world. As a military spouse-owned business our mission is two-fold – the first is our annual charitable donation to military-affiliated non-profit organizations; the second is our belief in uplifting and supporting fellow military families.

To help us celebrate this special milestone, we teamed up with some amazing military spouses that inspire us and are a shining light for others in the milspouse community. From creating fun goodies to fill Anniversary boxes, to sharing the sweetest anniversary wishes on social media, to promoting our mission of giving back to military families, to showing off their military branch pride with their new Milspo Pride Mini Bracelets, these incredible gals made our anniversary celebration extra special.

We’re raising a glass to YOU for your unwavering support over the past six years and for helping us give back to the military community we love so much. Our charitable donations, including this year’s donation to Holbrook Farms Retreat, would not be possible without you.

A Nod to Military Spouses Around the World

Created to uplift and celebrate military spouse sisterhood, the Milspo Pride Bracelet Collection was launched in honor of our 6th anniversary. One for each branch of service and a nod to the military spouses who support their families while their heroes serve.

Designed by Charliemadison Originals’ founder, also a military spouse, this bracelet is a tribute to the Milspo way of life – despite the uncertainty and sacrifice that military life brings, Milspos face each new challenge with grace and bravery.

Partnering with other Military Spouse & Veteran-Owned Businesses 

As part of our continued effort to shine a light on other military spouse and veteran-owned businesses, we teamed up with four amazing ladies to create Anniversary Boxes filled with goodies from their businesses along with our Milspo Pride Bracelets. We gifted these boxes to some amazing military spouses who helped us blow out the candles as we celebrated six years.
