Make a service member’s holiday a little brighter

One of the most important services that the Red Cross provides is their support to America’s military families. There are a number of different services that the Red Cross offers for them, which include supporting both the families and the service members during and after their duration of service.HolidayMail photo

Around this time of year, the Red Cross hosts a campaign called Holiday Mail for Heroes. This is a great project that anyone and everyone can get involved with. All you have to do is make a card (or a lot of cards!) wishing a service member “Happy Holidays!” Send it to the Red Cross, and it will make sure that your cards get to members of the armed forces. It’s that simple. Imagine the joy that comes to members of the military, far from their families during the holidays, who receive holiday cards with well wishes.

Something new that the Red Cross is doing this year is using social media for the Holiday Mail for Heroes project as well. If you have Instagram, Vine, or Twitter, you can hashtag #holidaymail on a photo or video and the Red Cross will add it to its blog, which military members around the globe can see.

So, what are you waiting for? Encourage your friends, kids, families and coworkers to take some time this holiday season to either create a card, video, or photo. This is for the men and women who risk their lives for us every day. Let’s make their holiday season a little cheerier!

The address to send the cards to is Holiday Mail for Heroes, P.O. Box 5456, Capitol Heights, MD 20791. Hashtag your photos and videos with #HolidayMail. Thanks in advance for your support!
