Kudos to the folks at Xerox for coming up with a neat way to send holiday wishes to U.S. troops serving overseas. I’ve broken it down into three easy steps.
1. Go to http://www.letssaythanks.com/ and select one of the 78 adorable postcards, each one hand-illustrated by a budding artist age 3 to 15.
2. Click on one of the 10 pre-written "thank you" messages or feel free to embrace your inner poet and write your own sentiments. Add your name and hometown (I combined two steps into one here - it's the MDG reader bait 'n' switch).
3. Hit “send”.
Xerox will then print your card and get it to a U.S. soldier abroad in a care package arranged by military support organization Give2TheTroops.
Artwork from this talented group of youngsters include David’s “From Coast to Coast We Give You All Thanks,” Alyssa’s U.S. Soilder’s Rock” (it's the punctuation that makes it cute), Clay’s simple, but effective, “I Miss You,” and Donari’s “Thank You for a Life of Liberty.” Good luck choosing!
It doesn’t matter whether you’re pro war or anti-war, these brave soldiers need to know that we’ve got their backs.
