Red Cross Christmas Cards

Want to send a Christmas card to military personnel? Here's the site for the Red Cross and their 2011 Holiday Mail for Heroes program. They have instructions for sending the cards and what can (and cannot) be included.

"Send cards to the address below:

Holiday Mail For Heroes
P.O. Box 5456
Capitol Heights, MD 20791-5456

All cards must be postmarked no later than Friday, December 9th. Cards postmarked after this date will unfortunately be returned to the sender. This deadline ensures enough time to sort and distribute cards before the holidays.

After the mailbox closes, the cards we received will be screened for hazardous materials by Pitney Bowes and then reviewed by Red Cross volunteers working around the country."
