Holiday Mail for Heroes

Each year eMail Our Military sends holiday cards to our troops for Christmas and Hanukkah. This year's project started October 13th and will end December 1st to ensure that all cards and letters can be shipped to meet the holiday deadlines. You can participate by mailing your holiday cards for our troops to eMail Our Military and we’ll ship them to our military in time for the holidays! For detailed information on this great project read and/or print the detailed Holiday Love flyer.

DO's

  • Do include your return address on your package
  • Do place all your unsealed correspondence in a larger envelope or package
  • Do include your contact info if you wish to receive a reply
  • Do address your cards generally (like Dear Hero, Dear Service Member)
  • Do try to include "eMail Our Military" on all your correspondence
  • Do tell everyone you know and spread the word! The more the merrier.

DONT'S

  • Don't seal your correspondence
  • Don't put postage on your correspondence
  • Don't date your correspondence
  • Don't specify a branch (like Army, Navy, etc.)
  • Don't address your correspondence to a particular branch (like Dear soldier)

From now til Christmas we'll be blogging about this. I hope you'll feel inspired to get involved too. Please help spread the word about this project by blogging about it, tweeting it and anything else you can think of to help the cause!
