Move America Forward treks across America for the Troops “again!”
This post will remain at the top of my posts until the “tour” ends!
There are some very special projects going on right now to show support for our troops. But time is a factor, as in time is running out. Please read the announcements below, pass them on and please consider participating! Success depends on your help!!
ATTENTION TO ORDERS!
HEAR YE! HEAR YE!! HEAR YE!!!
Starting Monday, November 26th, Move America Forward will wage a huge, cross country pro-troop holiday tour called “Honoring Heroes at the Holidays Tour.”
We’ll have pro-troop rallies and events in 40 cities across America for the next three weeks, and at each event we’ll collect signed Christmas, Hanukkah and holiday greeting cards that we’ll deliver to our troops in Iraq and Afghanistan . We’re collecting over 100,000 cards in this effort – and given the current rate the cards have been coming in to our headquarters at Move America Forward we could well exceed that goal.
I have a request to make of you: can you please help us spread the word of this effort and a link to our tour route so patriotic Americans all across the nation can do their part to show their support for our troops who will be serving more than 7,000 miles away from their families, friends and homes during the holidays.
When the “Honoring Our Heroes at the Holidays” national pro-troop tour ends on December 16th (in New York City), Move America Forward will then have a delegation fly to Iraq and hand-deliver the final batch of cards to our troops on Christmas Day.
We want to bring out great crowds to these events and collect huge numbers of Christmas/Hanukkah/Holiday cards for our troops.
PLEASE HELP GET THE WORD OUT!

Thanks a bunch,

You can also visit Operation America Rising and send the items requested to them. They will be meeting up with the MAF Caravan in NYC.
OAR is proud to be assisting with two projects this winter. First, in conjunction with the Honoring the Heroes at the Holidays tour of Move America Forward, we are proud to announce Operation Joy to the troops.
Operation America Rising will be collecting Holiday Cards for our Troops stationed overseas. We welcome you to be a part of this noble cause.
Get your local schools, churches, businesses, and civic organizations involved. All you have to do is collect holiday messages of Joy for the Troops and mail them to:
P.O. Box 2345
Franklin, NC 28744.
We will then deliver the cards to Move America Forward’s “Honoring Heroes at the Holidays Tour!”
This will be a nationwide tour starting November 26th and ending on December 16th. OAR will deliver the messages of Joy on Wednesday December 12, 2007. It is time to send holiday joy and praise to the men and women that defend our freedom. If you would like more detailed information email me.
Gathering of Eagles is also helping them.
Get your children, churches, temples and schools to participate! Bring the cards to the rally on December 16th or mail them in batches to our collection location.

1. Write an appropriate supportive holiday message to a soldier on the card.
