Xerox, the document printing powerhouse, is doing something pretty darn cool this year for Christmas.
They have set up a Web site, www.letssaythanks.com, where people can go and select pre-designed Christmas cards. Xerox will then print it and mail it for free to a U.S. soldier who is stationed overseas.
How freakin’ awesome is that?
Another cool thing is the cards were designed by children from across the country.
Now, you can’t select what soldier will get the card, but you can put personal messages of thanks on the cards.
These soldiers are putting their lives on the line to ensure we continue to have a safe and free existence here in the states, so sending them a card is the least we can do.
And if you do, make sure your personal message really expresses your gratitude. They deserve it, especially around Christmas when they are thousands of miles away from their family and friends.
The troops really appreciate it. You can read their messages of thanks here.
I hope everyone takes the time to send a card, even now as Christmas nears. Receiving a card late is better than not receiving one at all.
