Cards for Soldiers

Lucy at Lulu’s Petals reminded me of something we ALL need to do. When doing your Christmas cards this year, take one card and send it to the address below. If we pass this on and everyone sends one card, think of how many cards these wonderful special people who have sacrificed so much would get.

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

Your card will be distributed by the American Red Cross to service members, veterans, and their families in the United States and around the world. Guidelines are here. Cards should be postmarked by December 10.

Please do not include any inserts, phone numbers, email addresses, or other “personal” information in your card, but don’t forget to sign it. The Red Cross suggests using a generic greeting such as “Dear Service Member.”

For more information, visit or for Holiday Mail for Heroes program guidelines.

Cards should not be mailed or delivered directly to Walter Reed Army Medical Center. Walter Reed is not accepting mail addressed to “A Recovering American Soldier.

This is a wonderful idea. I shared it too at Small Reflections last Saturday on the 15th and am sending a bunch of cards while encouraging others to participate as well. Thanks for spreading the word ;–)
