Buy Budweiser's Freedom Reserve Red Lager And You're Supporting A Good Cause

Party like George Washington this summer.

Budweiser has done it again and managed to tug at our heartstrings. They recently unveiled a project they have been working on: the Freedom Reserve Red Lager, along with this touching video explanation of their newest product. It has now hit stores across the nation.

This new brew was handcrafted by veterans themselves. Their involvement was crucial to the success of this beer. They were handpicked to brew this special lager. If you look on the cans and bottles, their signatures adorn them as a constant reminder of what this project is really all about. Budweiser is a known supporter and employer of veterans and consistently donates to a variety of military non-profits, especially Folds of Honor. This year Budweiser has already raised over $14 million in support of Folds of Honor.

With every purchase, a portion of the proceeds ($1) will benefit Folds of Honor. Folds of Honor is a non-profit organization that provides scholarships to the surviving family members of military members who gave their all for our country, or who have given so much that they were seriously injured and received a Purple Heart. These scholarships can total to $5,000 and can be used to cover anything from tuition to books to room and board; there are scholarships offered for those aged kindergarten through all of the higher stages of education.

These scholarships provided by Folds of Honor help give family members the financial stability they might no longer have because of their serviceman/woman's ultimate sacrifice for the United States of America and our continued freedom.

Budweiser is launching a series of major marketing campaigns to spread the word about this new product in store, online and in commercials during events like the NHL Stanley Cup and the NBA Finals, so you have no excuse not to try it.

This product will be available until September 31, or while supplies last. This red lager was based on a recipe found in George Washington's old military journal. To honor this, the beer comes in old-timey bottles with the classic top that you have to use an opener to get off. If that is too American for you, they are also releasing this lager in one-pint cans. You know what that means: this Fourth of July, you and your friends and family can get crunk like our first president and his closest friends would have. What could be better a better way to celebrate America than getting tipsy like the Founding Fathers did?

In case all of that wasn't enough to convince you to go buy at least one six-pack, watch some of these videos that give you a first-hand look into the Folds of Honor families and see the impact you could have in their lives. Do the right thing, celebrate responsibly and charitably.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
