The personal touch

Talk about a personal touch – the other day I got an email from someone affiliated with the Holiday Mail for Heroes program, thanking me for spreading the word.

Not sure if you knew this, but our goal was to collect 1 million holiday cards to send to service members, veterans, and military families.   I’m happy to report that our final count was 1,400,000 cards!  We truly could not have accomplished this without your help.  We are so grateful to you and all of the other bloggers who got involved!

To express our thanks, the Holiday Mail team put together a video for the blogging community.

It seems that (unbeknownst to me) they were making an effort to get the word about this spread virally online, and it seems that it worked. Not sure exactly how they were tracking blogs posts on the topic, but it’s really neat that they took the time after the campaign to reach out and say thanks.

This simple gesture says a lot about the folks behind this program (The Red Cross and Pitney Bowes).
