Check out this cool image from http://www.redcrosschat.org. The first holiday cards for heroes are coming in! If you’d like to send a card here’s the address Holiday Mail for Heroes PO Box 5456 Capitol Heights, MD 20791-5456. Just make sure you get it to us by 12/10 so we have time to get it to our friends in the military. Complete details are available here.
Imagine being in a foreign country away from your family during the holidays or being a member of a family with one of their siblings overseas. Then, you receive a bright card covered in winter decorations thanking you for all that you or your family member does for our country. I know that would brighten my day!
This is the second year that the Red Cross is collecting holiday cards for the Holiday Mail for Heroes campaign. The cards are sent to American service members, veterans, and their families in the USA and around the world. This year, we are partnering with Pitney Bowes. Our holiday campaign would not be possible without their generous donation of technology, resources and postage.
Our goal is to collect and distribute one million holiday cards! You can send cards by December 10, 2008 to:
