Get Everyone Involved!
Holiday Love is a great project for schools, churches, boy scouts, girl scouts, women’s groups, clubs, etc. Get the kids involved in coloring pictures and making their own cards too! Teachers, this is a super class project!
Get everyone to bring in cards, postcards or write short notes. Place a drop box in your place of business to make participation easy! Remember, the more the merrier. Try to get everyone to contribute at least 1 card, postcard, note or letter.
Kids can make their own holiday cards too! Get your children’s classrooms or schools involved. This is a great class project and the student drawings and cards are always appreciated by our troops.
Maybe you’d like to make a banner for our heroes. Use a vinyl tablecloth (try red, white or blue) and sharpies (or any permanent marker) and create a thank you or support banner. Have your friends, co-workers, family, church members, etc sign it with their message. You may see it appear on the eMOM Flickr photo page at a later date with our heroes holding it up!
Make a poster for our heroes. Take poster board (try red, white or blue) and colorful markers (sharpies are great for this) and create a thank you or support poster. Have your friends, kids, classroom, co-workers, family, church members, etc sign it with their message. You might see it appear on our site at a later date with our heroes holding it up! It’s easy to ship too, just stick it in a mailing tube to us!
Please send your holiday mail, checks and/or money orders made out to:

I recently came across your blog and have been reading along. I thought I
would leave my first comment. I don’t know what to say except that I have
enjoyed reading. Nice blog. I will keep visiting this blog very often.
On behalf of my colleagues at Pitney Bowes ( http://www.pb.com ) and the American Red Cross ( http://www.redcross.org/ ), thank you for all of your support in helping to spread the word about the “Holiday Mail for Heroes” program.
We would like you to know that we’ve not only reached the goal of delivering one million cards to US service members, veterans and military families, but we surpassed it! And it’s all because people like you and your blog readers who got involved. View the following video for more details and a personal message of thanks from all of us: http://blip.tv/file/1643672/.
We could not have done it without you.
