With the holidays approaching, many people’s thoughts turn to giving thanks and spending more time with family and friends. As we celebrate the season, this is also the perfect time to send our best wishes and thanks to the men and women who sacrifice for our country year-round.
The Holiday Mail for Heroes program enables the American public to send a "touch of home" during the holiday season to members of our U.S. Armed Forces, veterans and their families, many of whom will be far from home during the holidays.
This year our program is making a difference in more ways than one. Not only can you sign a card and mail it in, but by making a $25 gift to the Service to the Armed Forces mission of the Red Cross, you can help change a military family’s life.
To make this even more meaningful, you can choose to write a message into one of four celebrity-designed cards. We then print your message in the card you select and send it to the Holiday Mail P.O. Box.
Here’s How You Can Help:
1. Make a $25 or more donation to "Support Military Members and Their Families."
2. Select one of four celebrity-designed cards and type in your message.
3. If you wish, you can also download a .pdf version of a celebrity-designed card to print and mail to:*
Holiday Mail for Heroes P.O. Box 5456 Capitol Heights, MD 20791-5456
4. Encourage family and friends to do the same.
Your gift will help the American Red Cross provide comfort and care in military and veterans hospitals; vital social services to support military families; and emergency communications to keep families connected when they need it most.
*Please refer to the planning tips for details on mailing an additional card.
