1. Please address the card to “Dear Warrior”. Be respectful and polite.
2. Write a holiday greeting, keeping in mind that our Troops are diverse in their holiday practices and beliefs.
3. Write a personal note. For example: How do you celebrate the holidays? What are your family memories of holidays?
4. Sign your first name ONLY and the town and state where you live.
The success of The Holiday Card Challenge is visible in the smiles and notes of gratitude received back from active duty warriors.
The card recipients can't reply directly to the card signers. They're working in combat zones without easy access to public communications or in places that cannot be publicly disclosed. We feel their gratitude and send them love and respect and support.
During the Covid Pandemic, Dr. Landerman-Garber teamed up with U.S. Senator Maggie Hassan (NH) to create the CARDS2CONNECT Challenge. By writing notes and cards to our Veterans who have been isolated during the Pandemic, our Veterans in hospitals, assisted living and nursing home communities will be reminded of our care and appreciation for their Service. The Program was successful in sending hundreds of cards to Veterans in N.H. Communities.
Thank you for your interest in the Holiday Card Challenge for our Military! Your contribution makes a real difference to the morale and spirits of our warriors abroad.
Promoting the Challenge, purchasing, boxing and shipping holiday greetings by the ton around the globe costs money.
Monetary donations in support of these and related costs will be gratefully received.
