Contemporary Christian music artist and the American Red Cross celebrity spokesperson Michael W. Smith is lending a hand to Holiday Mail for Heroes and is asking Americans to send a “touch of home” to U.S. service members through by sending messages of cheer and appreciation between now and Friday, December 9.
“It’s an honor to be a part of the Holiday Mail for Heroes program,” Smith said. “The brave men and women who serve our country deserve of our utmost gratitude and heartfelt sentiments, especially during the holiday season when they are far from home.”
Simply sending a quick greeting to service members goes a long way to make their holiday a little brighter. This is also a perfect volunteer project for local churches, charitable organizations and community groups. Americans are welcome to send religious cards and these will be passed on to chaplains nationwide to be distributed.
