If you go to this web site, www.LetsSayThanks.com you can pick out a thank you card and Xerox will print it and it will be sent to a soldier that is currently serving in Iraq. You can't pick out who gets it, but it will go to a member of the armed services.
How AMAZING it would be if we could get everyone we know to send one!!! It is FREE and it only takes a second.
Wouldn't it be wonderful if the soldiers received a bunch of these?
Whether you are for or against the war, our soldiers over there need to know we are behind them.
This takes just 10 seconds and it's a wonderful way to say thank you.
Please take the time and please take the time to pass it on for others to do.
We can never say enough thank you's.
Thanks for taking to time to support our military!
What a great idea . .I got so excited when I found this that I just had to post it immediately! Im glad you were looking for it. . and I was able to have it here .. but I think I am going to go do what you just suggested!!!!
Go for it wavegirl. Make it into a hub and get more awareness for this graet opprotunity out there. Hey maybe I'll make one too and we can link ours to one another. and maybe others will do the same. No two hubs will be alike
I think this is a wonderful idea, and I know it means something to the troops. It shows we all care and think about them. My son who just returned from Afghanistan showed me a note he received from a Grade 4 class -- he was really touched to get it.
This is wonderful! I like Crazdwriter's idea. I'll do a hub too (I'll have to put it on my list, so it might be a few days. My little guy just got ear tubes put in today. Doing well, but he'll be getting all my attention for a while.) I'd be happy to link to you guys if you want to email me your related hubs if you think it would help. I'll also post on Facebook.
Thanks! I will... luckily he's sleeping soundly right now. And, thanks for the welcome. I don't get a lot of time to write, but being as this is a short hub, I'll hopefully have it done by the weekend.
Already posted the link to the site on Facebook and sent a card too! I think this is great!
Thanks wavegirl. I'll try to remember to do that! I have a 4 1/2 year old too though, so I gave up on me time a while ago. But, this helps... its why I signed up for hubpages recently. I really try to spend all my free time with my family, but not having adult conversations, or using the grown up part of my brain except when I was at work, was starting to make me feel like mush... getting back to writing has been a real blessing!
I was sent this link several weeks ago, and have sent many cards to date. Also forwarded the link to friends, and family. What a great thing to do. I can remember being away in the service and missing many, many holiday's, and one thing the guy's live for is mail! Thanks for sharing this with everyone.
My husband was a Marine Corps reservist, and I know just in boot camp, he and all the guys waited for the mail like it was a life preserver. I can't imagine what a sacrifice it is to be away like that, and how important those letters from home must be.
A couple weeks ago she told many of us about Shetoldme.comWell that site has proven to be pretty good for traffic.I see she is the top referer with 66 people. I propose anyone who hasnt signed up yet head over to...
As it appears that getting 100 fans is somewhat of a milestone here, I'd like to give 2 lucky people the opportunity to help me reach it. (I'm currently on 98)I'd also like to thank everyone here who has welcomed me...
I'll let my son know. he has a few do it yourself hubs that get a lot of views from searches, they're his best performing hubs. I'll send him the link to this thread as he never enters the forums. thanks.
