My cousin Stacy sent me this and I think its neat-o.  So, I have decided to participate fully!

American Red Cross and Pitney Bowes to deliver 1 million cards to US Soldiers

For every comment I get on this post between now and Dec. 9th, I will make and send a card to a soldier! 

1 comment = 1 card

One comment per person please!  But if you have 4 people in your family, they can all leave a comment totaling 4 cards!

Soldier

And if, by some amazing grace, I were to reach 50 comments, I will then be donating 5 calling cards in addition to the card greeting!  You could be making the difference in a military families life by allowing them more time to talk to loved ones!

My goal is to relate the thankfulness I feel towards those who fight in the military and spread some of God's 'good news' to anyone who needs some encouragement , support, or love.

So, tell your friends, tell your family, and lets help the American Red Cross get to the 1 million mark!  And by all means, please participate yourself!  The instructions are listed on the link above.

Please consider helping me in supporting our troops…  put this information on your blog (no need to link to me if your doing your own comments for cards) or just copy the link to the Red Cross and email it out to friends and family.   Or, leave a comment! 

Many blessings-

Amanda

    Lovin’ ya girl! ๐Ÿ™‚ I am going to have Chad give me the names of His soldiers and I’m going to send them each a Christmas card. There’s always those soldiers who don’t get anything while deployed (must admit my poor husband’s not been very spoiled this deployment. I need to get better about that!)
    Totally selfish plug here, but if you want to send a card to a soldier you “kind of, sort of know” I’m happy to share Chad’s address! LOL He LOVES Christmas cards so it’d totally make his day! ROFL

    How thoughtful of you! We have military family and I know they greatly appreciate those of us at home remembering the sacrifices they make to keep us safe. Also, keep them and thier families in our prayers. Blessings!
