Would you like to send a letter to our troops fighting overseas over the holiday season? The Red Cross is kicking off its Holiday Mail for Heroes campaign. The rules are listed below.

 

Holiday Mail for Heroes

P.O. Box 5456

Capitol Heights, MD 20791-5456

 

www.redcross.org/holidaymail

 

Cards must be post marked no later than December 6, 2013. Cards post marked

after this date cannot be guaranteed delivery.

 

In order to make cards as meaningful as possible to a wide audience, the Red Cross

recommends that the public use generic card titles such as "Dear Service Member,

Veteran, or Military Family Member" when writing the cards. The Red Cross also asks that cards

not contain glitter because some cards may end up at the bedside of a wounded

service member and can aggravate existing health issues.

 

How people can get involved in the Holiday Mail program beyond mailing a card -

1) Word of Mouth: Visit www.redcross.org/holidaymail for up-to-date

information about the program and advice on how to help spread the word to

schools, community organizations, colleagues, friends, family, and places of

worship.

2) Social Media: Connect with fellow card senders through social media

channels and help us get the word out through Facebook:
