Looking for Sustainability ideas

I thought I find a way to keep costs down while still trying to stay eco-friendly. Trying to keep striving for sustainability. This a record of that journey.

Sometimes blunt and straight forward then sometimes sarcastic

Hoilday Mail for our Heros

Ok it not really green but it will brighten our heroes holiday.
The Big Cutie, my grand-baby; Is missing his Daddy in Iraq.

I was so happy to hear at work that they are taking up a holiday card collection for the soldiers. So I thought what does someone who doesn't work for my company do? I found this site! Red Cross Holiday Mail for Heroes

Holiday cards will be collected through a unique P.O. Box address from Monday, November 2 through Monday, December 7*.

First, cards from across the nation must be sent to this address:

Holiday Mail for Heroes
P.O. Box 5456
Capitol Heights, MD 20791-5456

So no glitter or letters, sign with your first name NO last names or your address. Cards should say “Dear Service Member, Family or Veteran”. Limit is 15, no need to put each card in a envelope, Place all your cards in a single large envelope and send to above address. Don't place anything inside the cards for they will be thrown away by the Red Cross when they screen the cards.

So spread the holiday cheer to those who as risking their lives for our country......
