Massive Giving Day - January 1, 2009

I've delcared a Massive Giving Day for January 1, 2009. We appreciate our freedoms but tend to forget about those who put their lives on the line defending them for us. I've found a simple, easy, free way for us to let our soldiers know that we appreciate their efforts.

Massive Giving Project #1:
Send Thanks to the Troops

The Massive Giving project to send 20,000 thank you post cards to our troops is moving forward and gaining momentum. We have sent over 2,500 already but we still have a long way to go to get 20,000 sent by January 31.

For some people, it works well to send 5 or 10 each day. Others like to do a bigger batch once per week.

I've decided to pick on day per week and promote it as a Massive Giving Event to help encourage those who can't find the 2-4 minutes per day that it takes to send out 5-10. After some practice, I can now send about 20 in 5 minutes.

The first Event is January 1.

Here are the links and simple instructions that you need to participate.

1. Go to this web site: Send a Card

2. Pick out a Thank you card and send it.
  • Then hit your browser's back arrow and send another one.
  • Or click on "View All Designs", pick a new card, and send it.
3. Then tell me how many you sent by clicking here ==> I sent some

4. Get the word out about this 20,000 card project. Send this link to all your friends, post it on your blog, or put it on your web page:

5. Return here daily and send a few more. How about 5 per day? Can you do it?

A full explanation of the project and complete instructions are here:

Remember to post a comment on the Massive Giving blog or on the Facebook Massive Giving Group telling us how many you sent.

Thanks for your support,
