The time has come to get out our pens and address books and start writing all our Christmas, Hanukkah or “cheers for the holidays” cards for our troops!
Move America Forward is collecting 100,000 cards or letters to a special soldier and delivering them straight to our troops in Iraq and Afghanistan who are so very far from home this season! Let them know they are in our thoughts and prayers as they so valiantly defend our freedom! Let’s show them we haven’t forgotten them and help make this a very merry time for them as they read the cards from a grateful nation!
This effort is part of Move America Forward’s giant “Honoring Heroes at the Holidays Tour!” Besides collecting 100,000+ Christmas, Hanukkah and holiday cards to take to the fine men and women serving our nation so far from home, we will also be crossing the nation for a pro-troop holiday tour – complete with 41 pro-troop rallies and holiday events. Make it a family affair this year and have the entire family come to one of these holiday pro-troop events – help write some notes, a letter or even the kids drawings to include in a special card to our Troops! They deserve the very best and we can give our wishes to them by taking the time to remember them now!
Notify your family and friends that we’re coming to town! Let your communities and schools, churches and clubs, businesses and everyone else you can think of and let them know to make a project of card making or writing and bring them to our rally with your flags and signs of good cheer for the Troops, when we arrive! if you’re not in one of the 41 cities we will be coming to, you may send them to us and we will put them in our big red mail bag to take across the North Pole to some very special Troops! We will bring back to you photos of them “opening” their holiday treasures from home! HO, HO, HO!
On Friday December 14th we conduct a special holiday tribute concert for our troops – “A Song for Their Service” at the historic Lincoln Theater in Washington, D.C. This magical event which will feature a collection of singers and bands performing a mix of holiday and patriotic songs. Special guests will be our wounded warriors from Walter Reed Medical Center and Bethesda Naval Hospital. Tickets will be available for the general public to obtain in the coming days.
