The Red Cross is hosting their annual Holiday Mail for Heroes. I thought this would be a great swap for the members of Swap-bot to show support for the many servicemen and women who are serving our country.
In this swap you will have 1 partner. You will send them a note card or a holiday card if you wish, along with your stamped holiday card for the service member. You might have to send both cards in one larger envelope. Your partner will then drop that card in the mail when they receive it. I thought it would be an easy way to know that the cards are being sent out.
Today over 1.4 million men and women serve in the U.S. armed forces and over 24 million veterans have served in the past. The holiday season is the perfect time to honor and extend a warm holiday greeting to those whoâ€™ve served and continue to do so.
Here are some guidelines from the Red Cross regarding what we can and cannot send:
Sign all cards
Entitle cards â€œDear Service Member, Family or Veteranâ€
Limit cards to 15 per person or 50 for school class or business group
Bundle groups of cards in single, large envelopes
Include personal information such as home or email addresses
Use glitter â€“ excessive amounts can aggravate health issues of wounded recipients
Include inserts of any kind as they must be removed in the screening process
The address you need to put on the envelope is:
Holiday Mail for Heroes P.O. Box 5456 Capitol Heights, MD 20791-5456
I am leaving this open to those of you who have at least a 4.8 with no recent 1's or 3's, and for newbies as long as you have a filled out profile. (It's not hard and takes no time at all.)
Let's all show our support!
