Holidays for Heroes

We cannot even begin to understand how difficult this Christmas will be for our military as they are away from their families this holiday season... or the family away from their soldier. Would you like to be able to encourage our armed forces as they serve our country during the holdiays by sending a simple greeting card? You can.

Holiday Mail for Heroes is a partnership between the American Red Cross and Pitney Bowes to deliver one million holiday cards to American service members, veterans and their families in the United States and around the world.
