Happy Friday! Saying 'Thank You' for The Holidays

Happy Friday to everyone!  This is such a busy time of year!  And I suspected, wedding planning has slowed down while I ramped up for the season. 

So in the spirit of the holiday season, I wanted to pass along these amazing programs that help us all say thanks to the men and women who are serving our country.  

This program, sponsored by Xerox, is as easy as it gets.  Visit the site, choose a card design, fill out or select your greeting, and hit send!  Easy peasy, no?

The American Red Cross has teamed up with Pitney Bowes for another year of "Holiday Mail for Heroes."  You can send a card service members, veterans, and their families to:

Holiday Mail for Heroes
PO Box 5456
Capitol Heights, MD

Unfortunately all mail must be postmarked by TODAY.  So if you have a couple extra holiday cards lying around, get them in the mail ASAP!

A Million Thanks is an organization that sends letters to military members (past and present) year round.  You can send your cards and letters to:

A Million Thanks
17853 Santiago Blvd. #107-355
Villa Park, CA 92861

So there you have it!  A couple easy ways to send a message of thanks, hope, or even just "hey, be well," to someone that may really need it.  

And by the way, I want to take second to mention that a couple people have send me emails that recommend writing to Walter Reed Medical Center and addressing letters/cards to "Any Wounded Soldier" or "A Recovering American Soldier."  Sadly, this is not true.  The WRAMC and the Postal Service do not accept these letters and packages.  So if anyone passes that info onto you, let them know that there are other ways to send thanks! 

Have a great weekend!
