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

Time for Cards

Oh this holiday season you can remember our soldiers. There is a outdated message circling the net that says When filling out your Christmas cards this year, take one card and send it to this address: A Recovering American Soldier c/o Walter Reed Army Medical Center 6900 Georgia Avenue, NW Washington, DC 20307-5001. If we pass this on and everyone sends one card, think of how many cards these wonderful, special people, who have sacrificed so much would get.

But the Walter Reed Army Medical Center has closed! So this would just end up in the dead letter office at the post office in Washington DC. If they are still open.  With our  local distribution  center closing it's postal operations here... you never know.  My daughter's father and his wife work there and may loose their jobs.  With worries my daughter.  Her father is talking of moving to West Virginia and that means to see her dad she have to make a 6 1/2 hour drive to see him.

So if you would like to send a card to a soilder you can go to the Red Cross site and found this address:

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

Just add one more card to your list!
