Support our troops: Send a free holiday “thank you” to a soldier

You can send a FREE Thank You card to a soldier… thanks to Xerox! There are so many great designs by kids across the United States, I had a difficult time picking just one to show. There are Christmas thank-you designs, too.

Here’s how to send your FREE card…

  • Click here to select a card: Designs
  • Select “Send Card”
  • Put in your name, hometown, state and add a “message”
  • It should take about 10 seconds to complete
  • Xerox will then send a free printed postcard to a U.S. military personnel stationed overseas.

Thanks, Frugal Girls!
