Attention folks find a card... NOW!

I'm sure many of you reading this who are somehow linked to the military have spent the holidays at some point separated. Really in our way of life its not an if its a when.

Right now the American Red Cross and Pitney Bowes have organized Holiday Mail for Heros. They goal is to get a MILLION cards to our service men and women. Please take a few dollars and a few minutes to brighten someones day and say thank you for all they do.

One thing to note is that they MUST be postmarked BY TOMORROW December 10th. (I know I know I'm late getting on the ball what can I say. But my cards will be going out tomorrow I promise)

As always there are a few guidelines to follow:
-All cards must be postmarked no later than Wednesday, December 10, 2008. Cards postmarked after this date will be returned to sender.
-If sending more than one card, please mail all cards together in one large shipping envelope. Cards sent in this manner do not need individual envelopes or postage.
-Please ensure that all cards are signed.
-Please use generic salutations such as “Dear Service Member.”
-Please do not include personal information, like email or home addresses.
-Please do not send letters.
-Please do not include inserts of any kind, including photos, glitter, confetti, gift cards or calling cards. Any items inserted into cards 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.
