Lets Say Thanks

By
Industry Observer with NMLS ID: 40831

I just received an email from one of my past military borrowers who has a loved one in Iraq.  I thought it was a fabulous idea worth sharing with all the good folks on Active Rain.

 Xerox is sponsoring a Thank You card drive for the men & women of our armed forces stationed overseas this holiday season.  It will only take a minute of your time, and will definitely brighten their day.  All you have to do is visit the Lets Say Thanks web site,  follow the 3 easy steps (give your name, pick a design, and choose a pre worded thank you message, or create your own), and Xerox will print and deliver the card to one of our troops.

American Flag

 It does not matter what your stance is on our politics, or foreign policy, these people are serving our country, and deserve everyone's support.  From a completely selfish standpoint, this is a great way to get in front of your database in a positive way.  Who knows, you might just get some business out of being a nice person.

Hi Ron,

Ditto on the thanks for the info. I'll be checking it out next and adding the link to my blog.

Btw, as part of Operation Gratitude program I've been participated in write hand written notes too. But I think this is a great idea that could be so wide reaching.

Ron,

Thanks so much for sharing this. I was able to do something similar on Veteran's Day. I pray that these cards make the soldiers smile! It is because of them that I SHOULD keep a smile on my face everyday!

Ron, Thanks for posting something like this.  Our youngest son is in Iraq right now for his 3rd tour.  Thanks to the internet connection we can stay in contact pretty regularly.  Our other son served 15 months also but hasn't gone back because of his duties here.  I am thankful for what each of these soldiers do for us on a regular basis serving our Country.

Thanks,

Lanora Campbell, Senior Loan Officer

I have seen this and think it is a wonderful program and we should always do things like this for our troops.  It is amazing how much a card from home means to them.  It will bless another and in the process you will be blessed as well!

Hi Ron - I regularly send packages to Iraq and Afghanistan through AnySoldier, and I enjoy doing it.  For those who have said to me that they just don't have time to do what I do, there is no reason for not sending one of these cards.  I just did it from your link and it took all of one minute.  Thanks for letting us know about this.
