Send Some Love to our Troops

It takes five minutes or less. Head on over, right this moment, to Xerox’s Let's Say Thanks site to choose from several child-designed postcards to send to our troops. You can choose a message to go with, or customize your own message. Xerox will print them out and send them to our troops. I missed the snail mail call this year for sending Christmas cards to our troops, so I was delighted to find this way to send some thank-you sentiments to those who serve our country.

Take a moment to read some of the feedback from the troops as well. They really do appreciate it!

“Thank you so much for the post card. It is so nice to receive things in the mail here. Some would not believe it but the simple good feeling of going to the company mail room and the clerk saying "Yes, you have mail" is an uplifting experience.  Even if it’s just a letter saying "hi" makes our day! Thanks again for your thoughts and prayers.”

Thank you, Troops, for serving our country and keeping us free. And thank you Xerox for providing this service. Xerox says it will continue this “Let’s Say Thanks” program as long as there is a need.

Tammy, your blog is beautiful. I found the link to you from Jenny Matlock's blog. Thanks for the "Sending Some Love to Our Troops" post. I am sending one or two right now. My son is a Marine, I am sure he will appreciate postcards from home.
