What Are YOUR Plans for Christmas?Posted on 10/21/11
We know that most northwest Florida home owners haven’t even gotten the Halloween decorations up, and here we are talking about Christmas already! Read on, though…it’s for an awesome cause, and we think you’ll be glad we brought it to your attention.
On October 18, two Destin residents sent a letter to one of our local newspapers. The letter highlighted the fact that many individuals, churches, and civic service organizations are getting together to collect Christmas cards for our military troops overseas. The authors noted that the Michael’s store in Destin has partnered with Operation Christmas Cards for Our Troops 2011 to mail the Christmas cards that are collected.
It’s pretty simple and straightforward to donate cards, and it’s a great way to get yourself into the true holiday spirit a little earlier than might be usual for you. The cards collected need to be in envelopes that aren’t sealed. The cards can be blank, but think about it. How awesome would it be if you took just a few moments to write a personal message and sign the card(s)? What a truly wonderful way to let our troops know how grateful you are for their service.
It may seem like a simplistic venture, but look at it this way: Sending our deployed troops a Christmas card is a small, personal token of genuine appreciation. Wouldn’t you feel great reminding our troops that you sincerely appreciate their service? The Veach Team agrees with these writers: It may be small, but by small and simple things, great things are brought to pass. Send in your Christmas cards, and feel great knowing that you’ve participated in this great effort.
The deadline to have the Christmas cards collected, signed and ready to go is October 30, 2011. If you or your organization would like to participate, fill out as many Christmas cards as you would like, then drop a note to [email protected]. You don’t have to do another thing – they’ll arrange to collect the cards!
