Easy: 60 seconds to write to our troops

(shameless copy-paste blog)
Note:  I don't usually pass these along, but thought it was a worthwhile cause.  It is not meant to imply that I agree with any of the conflicts we are currently engaged in, but that we do need to support our troops regardless of our personal opinion. 
If you go to this web site, you can pick out a thank you card and Xerox will send it to a soldier that is serving overseas. You can't pick out who gets it, but it will go to a member of the armed services.

How AMAZING it would be if we could get everyone we know to send one!!! It is FREE and it only takes about 60 seconds.  Wouldn't it be wonderful if the soldiers received a bunch of these? Whether you are for or against the war, our soldiers over there need to know we are behind them.

Please take the time and please take the time to pass it on for your friends to participate as well.



  1. My first thought: do the cards go only to U.S. soldiers, or to soldiers from all nationalities? Then I looked at the site. Yup. Only Americans.

    But I set aside my politics and the narrow-mindedness of Xerox, customized three messages (all less than 472 characters -- wasn't easy :~), and sent three card designs (the kitten, the "thank you" around the world, and the "Hope" sunrise over the mountains). And I had a lot of fun doing it.

    Thanks for telling folks about this, Rose.

  2. AWESOME! Thank you for doing this. It makes my day better just to know :)
    Cheers and friendship during this difficult holiday season, and Merry Christmas, Cadence / M!

  3. You're welcome, Rose! And here's the verse that went into the kitten card:

    I'm tucked away sleeping in somebody's lap,
    With tuna and catnip and warm milk on tap.
    You're making a difference -- so no time to quibble:
    I thank you for serving to keep me in kibble.
