You can pick out a thank you card and Xerox will print it and it will be sent to a U.S. soldier that is stationed overseas. You can’t pick out who gets it, but it will go to some member of the armed services. It is FREE and it only takes a second. Wouldn’t it be wonderful if the soldiers received a bunch of these?
On 26 June 2006, the Xerox Corporation launched the web site Lets Say Thanks, a free service that allows the public to send personal messages to U.S. military personnel serving overseas. Xerox had held similar campaigns in communities such as Atlanta, Phoenix and Washington, D.C., and due to strong positive response, it decided to expand the project nationwide. The messages are sent on postcards designed by children, selected from over 500 entries drawn and submitted by kids across America.
Senders can choose card designs and write personalized messages (of 472 characters or less) to accompany them; once a month the cards are printed in batch at Xerox’s facilities in Webster, New York, and distributed (along with packages from Give2TheTroops) to men and women deployed on active duty with all branches of the armed services in Iraq, Afghanistan, and elsewhere. (Senders cannot designate specific persons as the recipients of their cards, but they can opt to have copies of their cards and messages delivered to their homes.)
Xerox has said they will continue to run the “Let’s Say Thanks” program as long as there is a need for it.
