Holiday Cards for Heroes

(For some reason, I am having Trouble with blogger.  I have tried, unsuccessfully, to write and post this several times.  I have no idea what the deal is..  So, here we go again.)

I have seen several blogs mention making cards for the elderly in nursing homes, sick kids or families and for those serving abroad.  So I googled cards for the military.  I found out that the Red Cross has a program that collects and distributes mail to those that may not be able to otherwise be reached.  (Hopefully my link works, but if it doesn't, just go to the Red Cross site and look under the Make a Difference tab.)


Instead of cards, I will be making postcards.  I can't wait to get started!  Hopefully, I can bring a little bit of 'home' to a soldier serving on foreign soil.

I found another site, http://www.give2thetroops.org/ that sends care packages to the troops.  I have to admit that seeing the things these brave souls miss brought tears to my eyes.  I never thought about sending them DVD's or CD's before, but sure, they need entertainment, too!  If you use the Programs tab, you will see that there are several opportunities to donate.  They have specific deadlines for specific holidays.
