Let's Say Thanks Program – Free Cards for Our Troops

By Karen Santaguliana

Free support for our brave troops! If you go to the web site Let's Say Thanks (, you can pick out a free thank-you postcard for a soldier. The Xerox company will print out your card choice and send it to a soldier who is currently serving in Iraq. It's an actual card, not an electronic card. While you can't pick out who gets it, it will indeed go to the war zone to a deployed member of the armed services.

The selection of postcards is adorable. They were all designed by children throughout the United States. So inspirational! The website allows you to write a brief message to be printed on the card, or you can select and insert one of several pre-written messages. Be aware that there is a word limit on the message. Also, you do not need to register to send a card... really unusual these days on the 'net.

It is a FREE service that Xerox is providing for our heroes and it only takes a few seconds for you to do. You can't get much more frugal than free!

Wouldn't it be wonderful if our soldiers received a humongous bunch of these cards?

I sent mine already, now you send one, too! Oh, and a big thanks to Xerox for sponsoring this worthy project!


The Let's Say Thanks program is sponsored by Xerox
