eMOM Members Get Creative for the Troops

All the mail has arrived and now the fun begins. Opening all the packages, sorting the cards into piles, counting how much we've received, snapping photos or scanning those that are really exceptional to share. Oh yes, that's the best part of all - sharing the photos with you! We wish we had the time and resources to scan them all because they're all really works of art and we know you put so much time into making them special.

If you have photos from your card signing events be sure to let us know and we'll tell you where to send them so we can post them on our site. We'll share some of the ones we've taken and some of the ones we've already received from volunteers who were having tons of fun making cards for our troops.

From now until Christmas we'll be sharing some of the photos we've taken of the incoming and outgoing packages to our troops along with some of the creative works of "heart" we received. We hope you'll enjoy the photos and that they help kick off the holidays right and bring you a little extra holiday cheer.

Here's a sweet photo from one family that not only sent in cards but they created a holiday letter on their computer with great word art and photos of the whole family, including pets. They also sent in yummy snacks for the troops. eMOM members are truly creative!

Send a Holiday Message to Our Troops

Don't forget, even if you missed the opportunity to send in holiday cards this year, it's not too late to wish our troops happy holidays. You can post your holiday greeting on our FaceBook page or call or text in your holiday greeting for our troops at When you do, your holiday greeting, photos and text will appear on our Utterli widget on the eMOM website and here on our blog's sidebar for all our troops to see.

One more way you can help send our troops a holiday greeting is via eMail. Send your holiday message to our troops at Messages(at)eMailOurMilitary(dot)com. You can also help us ship all this great mail to our troops by becoming a Postage Patriot for just $5.00!

No matter how you choose to support our troops we're so thankful for all you do.
