Miami, FL (PRWEB) December 7, 2005
For the 4th year in a row, eMailOurMilitary.com kicked off its annual “Holiday Love” ™ campaign to send thousands of pieces of holiday mail to our deployed troops. The campaign is a favorite of patriotic individuals, church groups, sororities and schools across the country.
Every year the project gets bigger and bigger with more and more people participating from all over the world. Last year the organization reported receiving more than 1,000 handmade holiday cards from girl scout troops in Texas and just as many from a sorority in Hawaii the year before. “Last year’s response to our holiday campaign was incredible, the best year on record” stated President, Trish Forant. “We can’t wait to see if this year will top the last.” If the campaign’s past success is any indication of what’s to come then this year is sure to be the best yet.
The "Holiday Love" campaign is set up so that individuals can send their holiday cards and letters to eMail Our Military who then ships the mail in bulk to the service members. Anyone who would like to participate in the “Holiday Love” campaign this year can do so easily. All the information on how to participate is posted on the organization’s website at http://www.emailourmilitary.com/holidaylove.htm. “We’ve included tips and suggestions and step by step directions on how people can get involved and what they need to know to participate,” said Forant.
In addition to the "Holiday Love" campaign, eMail Our Military also created "Postage Patriots"™ to give folks unable to send correspondence the ability to sponsor the holiday mail packages the organization ships to the troops. Forant advised, “We include a letter in each package with the name of the generous individual or organization that sponsored the package.”
eMail Our Military was created as a response to the DoD's cancellation of the "Any Service Member" and "Operation Dear Abby" mail programs in 2001, with the mission to provide encouragement, motivation and morale support to the men and women serving in our military by sending eMail, correspondence and care packages. Website visitors can join, participation is free, and take part in a number of support projects ranging from sending eMail on a one-on-one basis with a service member to year round support projects.
