My Uncle Dominick sent me this great email and I thought the idea was such a good one, it needed to be passed along! What a great project this would be for church groups, CCD class, scouts, a class, or a family to send.
When doing your holiday 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
PO Box 5456
Capitol Heights, MD
Please read the details and guidelines here - they need to be postmarked no later than December 10 to arrive on time.
Also note that if you've received an email about this and it gives the address as Walter Reed Hospital, they are no longer taking cards. Use the address above instead. They also give links to places that accept phone cards and care packages.
What a simple and loving way to make a difference!
