    I received the following e-mail and thought I would share it with the Tacoma World family. With the number of people in TW, we have we could really flood them with cards. Thanks.

    A definite must

    awesome idea - pass it on and lets show our support!




    GREAT IDEA!! When doing your Christmas cards this year, take one card and
    send it to this address. If we pass this on and everyone sends one card, think of how many cards these
    wonderful special people who have sacrificed so much would get.

    When you are making out your Christmas card list this year, please include the following:
    Holiday Mail for Heroes
    PO Box 5456
    Capitol Heights, MD 20791-5456
    You can also:

    If you approve, please pass it on.

    Every year I have leftover cards so this year I gathered them all up (about 30) and signed some of them with my name and the rest with
    "Members of TacomaWorld.com", sent them off on Friday. Got the idea from Oxy. :)

    Having spent two years overseas myself (1 year i afghanistan, the next in Iraq 2002-2004), Thanks to all who have sent and who are sending! They really are appreicated!
    Here is another option as well.
    Something cool that Xerox is doing again this year.

    If you go to this web site,
    www.LetsSayThanks.com
    You can pick out a thank you card and Xerox will print it and it will
    Be sent to a soldier that is currently serving in Iraq.
    You can't pick out who gets it, but it will go to a member of the armed services.

    How AMAZING it would be if we could get everyone we know to send one!!!

    This is a great site. Please send a card.
    It is FREE and it only takes a minute.
