Got Christmas??


Okay, enough already...the first snow has fallen, to be followed by more flurries. Christmas music jangles from the radio. I get it. Summer is really over and the holidays are pouring out of their cars and scampering up the front steps.

So..are you sending Christmas cards this year?
You wanna send one to the address below?

From the front lines to the home front, the American Red Cross provides our military men and women with the care and assistance they need. This holiday season the Red Cross is partnering with Pitney Bowes for the Holiday Mail for Heroes campaign.

For the second year, holiday cards are being collected to distribute to American service members, veterans and service families in the United States and those deployed around the world. Pitney Bowes is generously donating technology, resources and postage to make this holiday card program possible.

The goal is to collect and distribute one million holiday cards to spread the spirit of the season--that would be Holiday Cheer, you Scrooges-- and give thanks a million brave individuals and families.

Please send cards to this address, guidelines available in the Red Cross website highlighted below:

Holiday Mail for Heroes
PO Box 5456
Capitol Heights, MD 20791-5456

  2. What a great idea-and a nice gesture. I'm sure it's hard for these men and women to be away from home. Their service and selflessness is something I think many of us take for granted. Thanks for the link.
