Sadly a few boxes went with no cards. PLEASE take time to write a simple message on a few cards. We need Christmas cards in the next week but we need 1000s of cards all year round to let the troops know that a grateful nation truly cares!

Thank you for continuing to support our troops with your cards and donations (look back at the postage cost at the top of this page) to keep these boxes of love and comfort moving!
