Say thanks to the troops

I got this in an email a few minutes ago. Of course, my non-trusting caused me to go to snopes.com and the joy I feel in finding it true is GREAT!! Xerox is sending cards over to troops for Christmas. Just find one that you like, and send it, they will print it and mail it to any soldier. They are made by children and they are all so beautiful!!

I also saw a story in the latest issue of Taste of Home, which has a site that tells you addresses where you can send homemade Christmas Cookies to the troops. I'm thinking that may be a fun project for this week.

Thank you texasgirl, this should stay at the top with hundreds of sent cards and thank you's to you. I hope everyone can get on board - it took no more than a minute tops to tell a solider how much I appreciate them.

Wonderful idea.

If we weren't meant to eat animals, then why are they made of meat?
