Holiday Card Project 2013

Thank you to everyone who participated. The deadline for submitting cards has passed.

People who e-mailed us comments and questions are the first people contacted, right after Labor Day.  If you have not yet contacted us, but would like to be notified next year, please .  


Soldiers' Angels is a nationally recognized non-profit foundation celebrating ten years of service to our troops and their families.  Our primary mission is the adoption of members of the military while they are deployed overseas. If you would like to adopt a soldier or provide other support, please visit our Web site.  If you are part of a group that wishes to adopt a soldier, please e-mail .  


Cards for Downloading

If you would like to get a head start for next year, you can still download holiday cards here.  (Remember that you can also use store-bought cards or make your own.)  There are nine different designs.  Seven of the designs are in both color and greyscale.  Two are only in greyscale.  I recommend printing colored cards on white or cream paper and greyscale cards on colored paper.  

If you have original artwork that you would like to have made into a card which hundreds of people may send to our troops next year, please .
