I began crafting holiday cards this weekend but before I started the cards for our friends & family, I made one special card. I don't know the recipient personally. I will never meet this person. Yet this person is my hero.
I crafted this card with care, appreciation & love for our U.S. military servicemen & women. Penned to "Dear Service Member," my card included heartfelt thanks & holiday wishes.
I sent my handmade card to Holiday Mail for Heroes, a wonderful organization that collects & distributes the holiday mail to U.S. military service members, veterans & their families throughout the United States & the world. Imagine how much an extra dose of holiday cheer & gratitude may mean to brave soldiers protecting our freedom, many of whom are far from their home for the holiday season. Thanks to the Red Cross & its partner Pitney Bowes, now we have the golden opportunity to shower our heroic, deserving military men & women with some extra love & attention during
the holiday season.
Sounds good, yes? It's easy to show your support & send holiday cheer to our military. By Friday, December 9, simply send a signed card or letter to:
Holiday Mail For Heroes
P.O. Box 5456
Capitol Heights, MD 20791-5456
For more information, please visit Holiday Mail for Heroes.
I was inspired by Chandra of Oh Lovely Day to participate this year; I hope this post inspires you to send a card!
