"Thanks for Freedom!" CARD/CARE PACKAGE DRIVE FOR TROOPS!

Here we go again! Time is very short - please help us get the word out any way you can - email, blogs, message boards, skywriting... etc! :)

4th OF JULY CARD DRIVE FOR DEPLOYED TROOPS


The Mission: To collect at least 3,000 "thank you" cards for troops serving our country all over the world, to tell them "Thank you for our Freedom!" We are also collecting care package items for troops - please visit our website for more info, and click on the "Items Needed ASAP!" link!

The Reason: Being away from home, often living in harsh conditions with combat & constant danger is difficult ~ our troops need to know we have not forgotten them!!! Mail from home helps to keep our troops' morale strong, making a very real difference in their lives. It keeps them motivated and focused when they know we care about them!

The Address: Send your signed, unsealed thank-you cards to the following address:

OPERATION: LOVE FROM HOME
P.O. Box 1660
Loganville, Georgia, 30052
ALL CARDS MUST BE RECEIVED NO LATER THAN SATURDAY, JUNE 6, 2009.

The Guidelines: The cards can be handmade or store-bought. This is a great opportunity to get your Scout troop, school, church and other civic organizations involved in doing something to show support for our troops. Please do not write the date on your cards. Please, no glitter on the cards. Because of the intended destination of the cards, nothing excessively "shiny" should be sent for safety & security reasons.

*IMPORTANT: This is not a "dating service." Please do not send suggestive or otherwise inappropriate cards or materials. Please also refrain from making political statements of any nature. We will be reading and screening every card received to ensure that the above guidelines are adhered to. Remember: This is strictly to let the troops know that we love them, we are proud of them and that we HAVE NOT FORGOTTEN them!
