Christmas Cards, Holiday Mail for HeroesBy: Jennifer Curra - November 17, 2013
Some may be wondering whether mailing Christmas cards is even worth it this year. Isn’t that the purpose of email and electronic Christmas cards, after all?
However, for students at Spring Hill Elementary School, there is no doubt about the importance of actually mailing a physical Christmas card, especially to members of the military. The Tennessee students are participating in the Holiday Mail for Heroes project.
The campaign’s mantra is “Give Something That Means Something” during this holiday to soldiers as well as their family members. Many of the soldiers will be out-of-the-country this season and unable to celebrate with family. According to ABC 6 News based out of Knoxville, Tennessee, the students are involved in this initiative in order to provide holiday cheer.
The students are not alone in wanting to spread cheer this holiday. Members of communities throughout the country are forgoing expectations to send electronic greetings and opting to send “snail mail” in the process so that soldiers feel appreciated.
Anyone interested in contributing to the Holiday Mail for Heroes project should send letters by December 6 to the following address:
