Here is a great idea. When addressing your Holiday Cards this year, add soldiers to your list. With little effort you can make a big difference to those serving our country.
A soldier in Iraq can’t see your ribbon,
Or the flag at your front door.
But a letter they hold in their hands,
To them means so much more.

Through the organization, Any Soldier, you can actually pick the names and addresses of soldiers serving overseas to send your cards to. Go to www.anysoldier.com for a list of soldier’s names and addresses and information on How to Send and Where to Send your cards. Letters are the most requested items and can be sent with a regular first class stamp. As the site warns, it may be addictive.
You may want to consider ordering bulk quantities of personalized Patriotic Holiday Cards from CardsDirect for sending to soldiers. CardsDirect will donate a portion of proceeds on three of these card designs to the organization For The Troops. The three designs were especially selected by Brooke Burke, winner of Dancing with the Stars when she partnered with CardsDirect on a recent holiday card drive for troops overseas. Any holiday card you select is sure to be welcomed by Any Soldier.
As you enjoy the festivities with your families and friends this holiday season, remember those serving overseas defending our freedom. By sending holiday cards you are touching their lives while bringing a sense of pride to yours.
