Helping Our Troops

Update- So, this is a great idea.....but not entirely legit. My friend Diana read my blog and told everyone she knew about this....and one of her friends sent her this link. Apparently, we can still do this- just via another group. Thank goodness for friends and for the Red Cross!!!

I got an e-mail with this idea and thought it was such a good one.

As you're sending your Christmas cards this year, take one card and send it to a recovering US soldier. A simple way to let these incredible men and women know that they continue to be in our thoughts and prayers and that we appreciate their sacrifice.

I'm thinking that this address would also work for general cards, letters and the always appreciated pictures from kids on an on-going basis.
