To appear strong and unemotional, I blamed my active tear ducts on the cayenne wafting from the kitchen's stove top. In reality, I erupted in a paroxysm of gratitude and sadness while reading sentiments already sent to our troops overseas. I’ve wanted to send cards for quite some time but never have. The logistics always sabotaged my efforts: to what address do I send them, will they be there when (and if) the mail arrives, having cards on hand or remembering to buy some. Thanks to a program sponsored by Xerox, sending greetings to deployed military personnel has never been easier. It only takes a minute. And it’s free.
Log on to “Let’s Say Thanks” (or click the widget at the bottom of this page) to create your free postcard. Choose from dozens of designs featuring patriotic and hometown scenes drawn by children. Pair the picture with a pre-written thank-you message, or compose your own. Done! You can, however, send as many as you wish.
Xerox prints the postcards in batches to enclose in care packages arranged and shipped by their partner, Give2ToTheTroops. Though a postcard may not thoroughly express your appreciation for the men and women that protect our freedom, it is better than nothing. Just read what the troops have to say about it.
Thank YOU, Xerox, for eliminating excuses.
