May 7th every year is your chance to spread the word about the #JeepWave. Yes, every day should be Jeep Wave Day, but we all know how frustrating it is to see another Jeep, throw out your hand, and get nothing but a blank stare in return. So, we aim to change that!
Last year, through social media, Jeep events, and personal interactions, we estimate that they word about Jeep Wave Day reached 6,000+ people. The year before, we reached more than 5,000 people. So, we’re ambitious and shooting to reach more than 10,000 this year and we think that should be easy. But, we’ll need everyone’s help!
We’ve only got a week left until Jeep Wave Day!
Please share with your social media connects on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, Google+ and anything else we haven’t caught up with yet! Sharing pictures is great, linking people to this post, and #Hashtags always spread awareness #JeepWaveDay2014
Thanks to all the loyal followers and those who are always throwing out the Jeep Wave!
Just wanted to share a little video sent to us by a Facebook fan the other day. We’re not huge fans of the Jeep Wave “point” system, but hey, if it gets more Jeepers waving at each other, then all the better!
Each year on Veterans Day, we here at jeepwaves.com like to bring you a story or picture of Jeeps in service. Last year, it was a story about flying Jeeps in WWII, the year before, a story of Jeeps liberating captured troops in WWII. This year, it’s something a little different, but no less interesting.
The photo above is of a commemorative pin from the Culver Military Academy. While officially named the Eagles, having a Jeep as your school mascot is quite a tribute to the vehicle that has served along side US troops for decades.
My father, who attended Culver and subsequently went on to a 20 year career in the Air Force, showed me this pin and recounted a few stories from his time at the school. While it was generally a very rigorous education, there were some stories of after hours mischief involving a Jeep and driving around campus with friends.
So, as you say thank you today to all those who have served us, past and present, give out a Jeep Wave or two and pay respect to the vehicle that supports our troops.
As we do every day of the year, www.jeepwaves.com donates 10% of all sales to the Wounded Warriors Fund as a small way to support our Vets. Thanks for helping us help them.
