Heroes at the Holidays

Special dispatch for ConservaChick readers from Ryan Gill at Move America Forward:

Starting Monday, November 26th, Move America Forward will wage a huge, cross country pro-troop holiday tour called "Honoring Heroes at the Holidays Tour."

We will have pro-troop rallies and events in 40 cities across America for the next three weeks, and at each event they'll collect signed Christmas, Hanukkah and holiday greeting cards that will be delivered to our troops in Iraq and Afghanistan. We are collecting over 100,000 cards in this effort - and given the current rate the cards have been coming in to our headquarters at Move America Forward -- that goal could well be exceeded.

Please help us spread the word of this effort and forward this link to the Move America Forward tour route so patriotic Americans all across the nation can do their part to show their support for our troops who will be serving more than 7,000 miles away from their families, friends and homes during the holidays.


When the "Honoring Our Heroes at the Holidays" national pro-troop tour ends on December 16th (in New York City), Move America Forward will then have a delegation fly to Iraq and hand-deliver the final batch of cards to our troops on Christmas Day.

We want to bring out great crowds to these events and collect huge numbers of Christmas/Hanukkah/holiday cards for our troops.

Note from ConservaChick: Even though the tour won't be passing through Kentucky, please do what you can to help make this effort a roaring success! Forwarding this email to everyone you know who may be anywhere near the tour route would be a real good start. Sending donations to Move America Forward is another great way to show your support.
