I send them each year. I look forward to sending them and really look forward to receiving them. It is fun to display them and use them as decoration.
If you DO send cards, maybe you could add a couple extra cards to your list. Say to a soldier or 2 (or more)?
Here is an idea. Click to go to the Red Cross website for more information. There are some guidelines. They need to be postmarked by December 9th. That gives the Red Cross time to give a quick security check and then pass them on. Please sign your cards too! If you want to send quite a few cards, you can bundle them in a flat rate envelope or box. You don't need to individually send each card. So if you send out cards, just think about sending one on to a soldier and thanking them. Here is the address to the Red Cross:
Holiday Mail For Heroes
P.O. Box 5456
Capitol Heights, MD 20791-5456
But please, I do encourage you to go to the Red Cross website to double check the guidelines to ensure that your card is received.
