As a military spouse with a husband who deployed to a combat zone last year, I’m also pleased to see the creative ways businesses are demonstrating support for our troops. And leave it to CMP fave pingg, a free online e-card service, to figure out a way to show thanks to our Armed Forces, but get the kids involved as well.
[EDITED TO ADD: Pingg is now Celebrations.com]
Teaming up with Operation Gratitude, an awesome charity that creates and sends over 100,000 care packages to deployed soldiers in combat, pingg is creating a very cool “Gratitude Collection” of cards that will be featured on their site and printed out for inclusion in OG’s care packages. But best of all, they are seeking you and your kids’ expressions–eight, to be exact–that will be featured on these cards.
Simply complete this sentence I’m grateful to the troops for/because… or share your own sentiments in 10 words or less and send them off to pingg.
Your inner greeting card writer can run wild, and our troops will get some much deserved words of heartfelt appreciation. Awesome. -Kristen
