of the things we have heard from the soldiers we've spoken
to (as well as their families and friends) is that they love
to get cards and letter from anyone back home in the United
States. It doesn't matter who the letter is from.
At CarePacks, we want to include at least
one letter or card with every package that we send out, so
we need lots and lots of them. You won't know who your letter
is going to (and neither will we until we put it in the box!),
so just write about anything that interests you. The letter
can be long; it can be short. The key is to tell a little
something about what's happening back here in the USA. For
instance, you can write about:
- how your soccer team is doing
- what instrument you play and why you
- something good that happened to you
- what kinds of pets you have and what
they are like
- ...and so much more!
Just make sure that the letter is positive,
upbeat, and encouraging, because that's what our soldiers
need. And remember: you may or may not receive a letter back
from a soldier, but they appreciate your notes just the same.
