The mission of the Let's Say Thanks program, a partnership between Give2TheTroops and Xerox, is to provide a way formembers of the public to express their gratitude to U.S. military troops stationed overseas. Through the creation of personalized postcard greetings sent to deployed servicemen and women, the Let's Say Thanks program aims to boost community morale and serve as a reminder that we appreciate their service.
Through the Let's Say Thanks Web site, www.LetsSayThanks.com, members of the public can show their appreciation for the troops by filling out a message of thanks. Supporters can choose from a variety of card designs submitted by children, ages 6-14, from all over the U.S. The messages are then printed on postcards that are shipped in care packages by Give2TheTroops. The process is free and easy, allowing both children and adults to participate.
