Thankful for our Troops

Joovy is thankful for so many things.   Today,  we are Thankful for Troops who have served in the past or who are serving now.  We are very grateful, proud and thankful for your dedication to our country.

Who do you know who has served this country and is in need of a Joovy stroller, highchair or playard?  Share their brief story on our blog and on our Facebook page to nominate a friend, loved one or family in need.


And, our winner was nominated by Kathryn Patti.  Kathryn shared with me that, “my  husband was Matt’s commander in Afghanistan and after their time together he thinks of Matt like a brother.  They will be so excited to receive a product from you!  Thanks again for supporting military families!”

I’d like to nominate my good friends Jill and Matt Carpenter. Matt is a member of the Ohio Army National Guard and was deployed to Afghanistan during 2010. While home on R&R he and Jill got pregnant with their little boy Jax. Matt was able to make it home just in time for Jax’s birth! Jill and Matt are a very deserving military family. While most people recognize the sacrifice our military men and women make, few understand the sacrifice made by the family members soldiers leave behind. While Matt was deployed Jill had to endure not only those notorious crazy pregnancy hormones but she also had to deal with the additional stress of having a spouse deployed and managing a household and pregnancy on her own. She did so with grace and honor. I’d love for Jill, Matt and their 10 month old son Jax to be able to receive a Joovy Nook Highchair as a way to say THANK YOU for their service and dedication to this country.

Thank you!
Kathryn Patti
