I'm working on fabric postcards to send to Holiday Mail for Heroes, a project in which the American Red Cross and Pitney-Bowes are teamed up to sort, search, and deliver one million holiday greetings to military men and women, their families, and veterans.THE DEADLINE IS DECEMBER 10, so if you want to participate -- and I know you do -- you need to get moving NOW.
All kinds of greeting cards are accepted, whether store-bought or custom crafted. Write a salutation like "Dear service member," add a short note, and sign your name. Don't put an address, though.
Pop one or many into an envelope and address it as follows:
Holiday Mail for Heroes
P. O. Box 5456
Capitol Heights, MD 20791-5456
Again, the postmark deadline is December 10. Any cards postmarked after that date will be returned to sender.
My grandson Bradley (who graduated from boot camp in Great Lakes, Illinois, on Friday) and I thank you.
