The Nominations

This year, we are sending surprise encouragement packages to our country's heroes every month.

Our inspiration came from this great paper we found at Mardel!
After selecting a hero (either past or present military personnel), we will send out a request for encouragement. People around the world will email us encouraging notes and letters addressed to our selected hero. We will print these encouraging notes on the paper above, and send them to our hero. Hopefully we will be able to help our nation's heroes through some tough times.

Do you have a hero in mind that needs some encouragement?

We are now taking nominations for our Hero of the Month.
Please email us their story and why you think we should choose them as our Hero of the Month. Please keep all nominations 750 words or less :

Nominations for the following month are due by the last day of the current month!!! Don't Delay!

Please leave your contact information and put "HERO OF THE MONTH" in the subject line.
Please include info like name, hometown, age, name of family members, and a picture if possible. We want to know as much as we can!
We must have a current address in order to send our package. PLEASE include this address in your nomination letter.
(If your nomination is not chosen this month, it will be placed in the running for next month, for your convenience. We will contact you prior to selecting your hero to make sure your nomination is still relevent at the time of selection.)
Nominations will be taken all year long. The month in which you nominate will qualify you for the following month's selection.

After reading the nominations, we will allow our facebook fans to vote on their favorite story.

Good luck and happy nominating!
