Holiday card for Soldiers

At the holiday season, we often think of those less fortunate than ourselves or those who are far away from home. Last year, the Saturday stitch and chat ladies were motivated by Judy who collected items for a particular unit. They sent cd's, gloves, puzzles and other items.

I've read at least one blog where there were suggestions about sending holiday cards to soldiers. From the back and forth exchanges, it seems that there is a protocol that you must follow. Below I have inserted the link to the Red Cross which is jointly working with Pitney Bowes to provide cards to service men.

There is even a way to utilize their cards! Given how much time we spend on computers, this seems like a worthwhile use of our time.
