holiday mail for heroes

Please help make a soldiers day by sending thank you or a holiday card to a random soldier. Join April Powers and many others in sending our heros some love this holiday season. "hint you can revitalize old cards by cutting backs or written part off and making your own special back. Or if you have new ones send those. I challenge each of you to send 3 cards. This takes next to no effort compared to living out of a rucksack away from your loved ones in an area that can cost you your life.

I would also challenge you to put a dollar in each cards and highlight in god we trust and then include a note in our military we are thankful and appreciative for your time and service. Thank you A month for thanking our heroes. zip code[masked]

    This is a bonafide program sponsored by the Red Cross and Pitney Bowes. HOWEVER, their guidelines are specific: "Do not include inserts of any kind." Therefore, DO NOT INCLUDE A DOLLAR. Further instructions: "...for the delivery of holiday cards only. Those wishing to donate items such as phone cards or military comfort kits should go to the Help Our Troops section of the Red Cross online catalogue."
