Red Cross Kicks Off Holiday Mail for Heroes

DSC_6037In celebration of Veteran’s Day pop singer Amy Grant could be spotted down the street from the White House at The Red Cross National Headquarters (you really can’t miss the 17th street building- it has a big red cross on it.)

Grant was in town to help kick off the Red Cross’ Holiday Mail for Heroes program, where you can take a moment to sign a card and send a message to those that are serving our country all over. If you missed your chance to sign a card with Amy Grant, you can still send a card to service members and their families through December 7th.

Send your cards to:

Holiday Mail for Heroes
P.O. Box 5456
Capitol Heights, MD 20791-5456

Make sure you check the website for info on how you should make out your cards.

    Dear Patrick,

    I hope you are doing well. I am working with Pitney Bowes and wanted to reach out to you regarding our 2010 “Holiday Mail for Heroes” campaign with the Red Cross. We certainly appreciated your post last year about the project, and want to thank you again for helping us touch so many service members, family members and veterans in 2009.

    This year, the goal of the campaign remains the same: to recruit Americans to send holiday cards with their messages of thanks and cheer to service members, veterans and their families. It is our hope once again that, through this campaign, American service men and women in the U.S. and around the world will receive a much needed touch of home during this holiday season.

    This year, information about the Holiday Mail for Heroes campaign can be found at http://www.redcross.org/holidaymail and http://redcrosschat.org/2010/10/26/holiday-mail-for-heroes-2010/. The site includes information about what types of cards can be sent, how cards should be addressed, and also provides further information regarding how you can get involved. I wanted to see if you would be willing to spread the word about the campaign again this year through your blog, helping us send a touch of home to our U.S. Armed Forces, veterans and their families when they need it most.

    Please feel free to reach out to me with any questions. I’m available through the Twitter handle @Mail4Heroes as well. I hope to hear from you soon.

    Best Regards,

    Andrew Saladino
