Looking for Military Wives...

From my inbox:

Hello CJ and Marcus,

I run, a site showcasing the real life experiences of women and
their life-learned advice, and we are searching for a military wife who
wants to get a makeover before her husband or boyfriend returns from being
deployed. I was hoping you might be able to help us find a deserving
candidate by either posting an announcement to your readers/community or
sending this information around to your circle.

We'll be shooting in Los Angeles, hopefully beginning in September or
October and finishing things up when the couple is reunited. The chosen
woman will have her story featured on and will win a complete
mind and body makeover, including a new hairstyle, a new fitness instructor,
a new wardrobe and personal counseling to prepare her mentally for her
husband's return.

Anyone interested is invited to submit a brief note explaining why she wants
to be a part of this project, if she has children, when her husband is
scheduled to return home and which branch of the military he's in. We also
ask that candidates confirm with their husbands that it's okay for them to
participate, since he will have to be on camera during the reunion, and that
they send in a recent photo. Submission materials should be sent to

If you want any additional information, please let me know. Thanks again for
any help you can lend in getting the word out.

And an added note from CJ:

...ensure that you tell people to NEVER give any personal information like Social Security Numbers or credit card numbers to companies they're unsure of. Also, offers like this shouldn't ask for money from those wanting to take part. I'm not saying that is what will happen, I just want people to be cautious ANY TIME they deal with people professionally.
