    Default Holiday Mail for Heroes

    Please help the American Red Cross meet their goal of sending a million pieces of holiday mail to our men and women serving in the armed forces

    CARDS MUST BE POSTMARKED BY DEC 10 so that they can be checked for appropriateness before being sent in time for the holidays

    it's a small and inexpensive, yet meaningful thing to do for the holidays

    visit www.redcross.org/email/saf/ for more details and downloadable cards

    This is a small gesture that is such a huge morale boost to all of our deployed troops.

    Great post, Daisy!

    Thanks for the link...I'd been looking for it (or one similar). I'm going to sit down with my 7 and 5yr. old nieces over Thanksgiving and we're going to do this together.

    This really is a great idea. I've seen it done for a couple of years. It's great. I think I will get with all our kids as well this week and do this too.

    Yes that is a very good idea. My 20 year old nephew is coming home the day before Thanksgiving after spending 1 1/2 years in Iraq. He gets to stay in the states for a year, then he goes to Afghanistan for 1 1/2 years after that. And I know they love the letters!

    OK boys and girls, I got my box of holiday cards finished up and ready to go out.. ..just a reminder during this busy season that cards have to be postmarked by the 10th in order to get out AND IT'S DECEMBER 1ST ALREADY



    Just think about what a nice little pick me up that this will be for our soldiers on a day when EVERYONE would rather be gathered around their family tree or lighting the family menorah.

    Don't think you have to do alot, just include one or two as you are readying your regular card list and it will all add up!

    spent several hours at the ARC Chapter house sorting holiday mail for heroes today...good news is that very few arseholes decided to use this opportunity to make our service people feel worse about being away from home.....and we sorted them all out and INTO THE SHREDDER their cards went. HAH!

    We sorted well over 20,000 pieces just at our one location...many of them from children and many unintentionally hilarious....if the the recipients laugh at them nearly as much as we did, they'll have a good time with it...until today, I did not fully appreciate how dinosaurs, spacemen and Christmas are inextricably intertwined in the minds of 8 year old boys!


    Lots of Girl Scout, Brownie and Daisy troup cards...and they took their arts and crafts seriously folks.


    Looks like this was a successful campaign and our people over seas and in the hospitals are going to be getting tons of heartfelt thank yous from back home.
