In 2005, Bed Bath & Beyond teamed up with United Service Organization in order to support the troops! Bed Bath & Beyond  began selling the “Support Our Troops” magnetic ribbons for $1.99. Half of every sale is donated to the USO.

The proceeds go to not only the troops but their families as well. The first year that this partnership began Bed Bath & Beyond raised $300,000. The company does not take credit for the money raised, but praises the customers because they are the ones purchasing the ribbons.

“Two Bed Bath and Beyond subsidiaries — Christmas Tree Shops and Harmon Discount Stores — also are selling the ribbons and donating a portion of the proceeds to the USO. ”
