247a: Let's Say Thanks!

We should always be thinking about our troops, but especially during the holidays is a great time to be thinking of them. I'm sure it's so hard for them all year long to be away from their friends, family, and their country.

There's a way for you to send a card easily to those overseas fighting for us. It's sponsored by Xerox, and all you have to do is go to this site and follow the instructions! A soldier will receive a thanks in no time! While you can't decide who gets your card, which are all made by kids, any soldier that gets a card will greatly appreciate it.

All you do is decide the card you want to send and click send card. You'll then go to a site where you put your name, hometown & state. You then select a message from a list or you can write your own. Then click Submit, and you're finished! Easy peasy!

Here's the card I sent:




And the message I selected:

"We don’t know each other and will probably never meet, but I want you to know that you and all of our troops are in our hearts and prayers each day. Please always remember what you're doing will always be appreciated and never forgotten. I wish you all the best and pray for your safe and speedy return home to your family and friends. Thank you."

It literally takes one minute to do, so go over and send a card to a soldier!

Have you found any sites that do something nice for our troops, or anyone else?
