Help veterans and dogs in need with your purchase
UPDATE: This mug sold out in less than a day! Thanks to all who purchased — your money is going toward helping veterans and dogs nationwide.
What's a better color scheme for our Memorial Day Mug than red, white, and blue?
Our Memorial Day Mug pays respect to the men and women who have served our country. Because of them, we get to wake up and enjoy a hot cup of coffee and to celebrate our freedom daily.
$10 from every sold mug will be directly donated to K9s for Warriors so veterans can get the help they needed from trained service dogs. The nonprofit provides the highest quality service dogs at absolutely no cost for veterans in their program, and roughly 90% of the service dogs come from shelters or owner surrenders.
This was the inspiration behind our Memorial Day mug design (and a matching patch!), and the design was illustrated by our art director Thomas Dragonette. When he thought of designing this mug, he wanted to create something that paid respect to all branches of the military.
When designing this mug, Thomas wanted to depict something that can represent all branches of military. This give him the idea of dog tags worn by servicemen and women. For some families, dog tags are all they have left to remember their lost loved ones who made the ultimate sacrifice for our country.
This mug has a navy/powder blue glaze with white, and has a red glaze backfill on the medallion. It's in Deneen Pottery's Camper mug style, which holds 14+ ounces of your favorite brew.
Today and every day, we are so grateful for all servicemen and women. When you drink out of this mug, remember and men and women who fought and made the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom.
