Support The Troops This Veteran's Day By Leaving Them A Big Smooch!

 Happy Veterans Day People! Thank you to all the men and women who serve our country and risk their lives every day for America. It's so important to recognize and honor the hard work and commitment of our troops.

We can all pay tribute in our own way but if you're a New Yorker you can show your support as only a beauty buff would. Maybelline New York is teaming up with Cosmopolitan Magazine and the United Service Organization (USO) to collect 'Kisses for the Troops'. Such a great idea and so fun!

Today Cosmo Mag has a Kiss Station set up and is inviting the public to give a kiss on a postcard for our troops. The postcards will be delivered to those serving in Iraq and Afghanistan just in time for New Year's Eve. Awww… (heart melting). Cosmo and Maybelline New York will donate one dollar for each kiss collected to the USO, which I think is a fantastic reason to kiss it out for them.

Visit the kissing station in TIMES SQUARE TODAY and meet actress Malin Ackerman, who'll be helping collect kisses for the servicemen and women. Maybelline New York will provide various shades of Color Sensational lipstick in the Kiss station to leave your beautiful marks.  

Even if you can't make it to the event you can still participate by "kissing" a postcard virtually via a digital application on Cosmo's website or by going to Cosmo's Facebook page and uploading a photo and  note of thanks. Both will count towards the USO donation and be sent to the troops. You can also text "KISS" to 85944 to donate $10 to the USO for the amazing work they do for the troops and their families.

I really think this a great cause. Especially if you've always wanted to show how much you support and thank the troops. So "kiss" away and know you'll be really leaving a mark.
