    Christmas Cards for Soldiers

    Advertisements
    I just got this in an email.. thought it sounded like something easy to do for them while you're doing your normal Christmas routines!




    "GREAT IDEA!! When doing your Christmas cards this year, take one card and

    send it to this address. If we pass this on and everyone sends one card, think of how many cards these

    wonderful special people who have sacrificed so much would get.

    When you are making out your Christmas card list this year, please include the following:

    A Recovering American Soldier
    c/o Walter Reed Army Medical Center
    6900 Georgia Avenue,NW
    Washington,D.C. 20307-5001

    If you approve, please pass it on."

    There are rules when sending to Holiday Mail for Heroes:

    *All cards must be postmarked no later than Wednesday, December 10, 2008. Cards sent after this date will be returned to sender.

    *Participants are encouraged to limit the number of cards they submit to 25 from any one person or 50 from any one class or group. If you are mailing a larger quantity, please bundle the cards and place them in large mailing envelopes. Each card does not need its own envelope or postage.

    *Please ensure that all cards are signed.

    *Please use generic salutations such as “Dear Service Member.” Cards addressed to specific individuals can not be delivered through this program.

    *Please send cards as opposed to long letters which delay a quick review process.

    *Please do not include email or home addresses on the cards, as the program is not meant to foster pen pal relationships.

    *Please do not include inserts of any kind, including photos, as these items will be removed during the reviewing process.

    *All cards received may be used in program publicity efforts, including appearing in broadcast, print or online mediums.
