Let's Say THANKS to OUR Troops!!!
Something cool that Xerox is doing

If you go to this web site, http://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 some member of the armed services.

How AMAZING it would be if we could get everyone we know to send one!!! This is a great site. Please send a card. 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 guys and gals over there need to know we are behind them..

Thank you for all the support with getting the word out on this. As of right now I only have 2 loved ones over there, but a couple years ago I could have rattled off about 10 people. I sooo know they are gonna enjoy getting those cards!! Keep clicking those buttons so more and more can get sent out!! AND TELL EVERYONE!! I told 13 people yesterday!! WOOHOO!!

Great idea!
Great website Spooky! So easy to do. Are you a member of ravelry.com, if so it would be a great post for a group on that site. If not let me know and I will post it there for others to do.
Thanks again!
