The weeks before Christmas are truly a continuation of the thanksgiving spirit. Counting our blessings and trying to help those less fortunate than we are. With that in mind, I'm asking each of you to do a small thing for a total stranger if it's within your power.
On Friday, November 27th, I'm starting my Christmas season by sending my first batch of Christmas Cards to:
Holiday Mail for Heroes
P.O. Box 5456
Capital Heights, MD 20791- 5456
All cards must be postmarked no later than December 7th 2009 to be sure they get delivered by Christmas. After that they will be returned to sender.
This is a collaboration between the American Red Cross and Pitney Bowes. Each card should be signed. Do not include any personal information or include anything in your card.
Each card is screened for hazardous material, inspected and then forwarded to an American Soldier. So many soldiers have nothing to look forward to at the holidays. WE CAN CHANGE THAT :)
If you want to check this out further go to: snopes.com and search for Holiday Mail for Heroes.
If you can send just one card, it will make a difference in the life of a Soldier. They are all so deserving.
~Thanks so much and Happy, Happy Holidays ~
