Senator Huntley Encourages NYers To Say Thanks
State Senator Shirley Huntley is getting out the word on "Let's Say Thanks," a program that gives citizens the opportunity to send a printed postcard free of charge to U.S. military personnel stationed around the world.
"A simple thank you to our brave men and women fighting overseas will go a long way this holiday season to give them the support they need. These people have made the ultimate sacrifice and need to know they are in our hearts and minds, and what better way to do that than tell them," said Senator Huntley. "As hectic as this time of year can get, it takes only a moment to acknowledge our soldiers and their sacrifice."
Let's Say Thanks offers dozens of cover designs, created by children ages 3-14, on its website. After selecting a design, a written message can be added and the colorful postcard will be printed and sent to a member of the U.S. armed forces.
Created by Xerox Corp., Let's Say Thanks has exceeded expectations with millions of postcards being sent to U.S. troops stationed around the world. The program continues to gain popularity and success through celebrity supporters who include George Lopez, Wayne Newton and Phyllis Diller.
"In less time than it takes to catch up on your email, you can let our troops know their service and sacrifice are not forgotten this holiday season. Be sure to take a moment and visit www.LetsSayThanks.com," concluded Senator Huntley. For more information on the program or to send thanks, visit the website.
