The Friendly Reminder

Well everyone, remember when I said the deadline for cards was October 1st? Where has all of the time gone?!

We are less than a month away from the deadline and only have about 25% of our goal!! If it has snuck up on me, I know it has snuck up on all of you. This is your friendly reminder that the clock is ticking! Christmas cards are going to start creeping up in your favorite stores so grab a few boxes, sign a few cards, and send them our way!

We have made plans to do our Airport Outreach again this year! To hear about last year's adventure, just click HERE! We will be headed out to DFW on Christmas Eve to pass out Christmas cards. If we're lucky, we may also have a photographer tailing us, so we will be sure to share the entire adventure with you!

Of course (and unfortunately!) we can't send these cards for free. We know everyone is saving up for that perfect Christmas gift, but if you have a few extra dollars, please consider donating to The Art of Encouragement.

Did you know that $10 will send a Christmas card to 100 veterans in either a VA hospital or a VA state nursing home? That's 100 lives that you could touch, and 100 heroes that might not get anything else for Christmas. Please help us make sure that these heroes know that their heroism and sacrifice is greatly appreciated.

If you have an hour to sit and write these heroes a card, to tell them thank you and that they are not forgotten, we need you, and we thank you.

If you have $10 or more to help us touch the hearts and lives of 20,000 heroes, we need you, and we thank you.

Maybe you don't have the time or the money to help, but you still want to do something. Guess what?! We need you, and we thank you!

Please share this mission with your friends and family. It takes an army of people to make this happen every year, and your help to spread the word is what creates the army! We thank you for standing with us, helping us, and beleiving in our mission! We simply want to thank those who have stood for us, protected us, and kept us free.
