(Full disclosure: Creative Concepts, the parent company of the Business Smart Tools conference, developed and produced the following video.)

Last year, The American Red Cross and Pitney Bowes teamed up to deliver nearly 600,000 holiday cards and letters to members of the US armed services, as part of their Holiday Mail for Heroes campaign. This year, they’re aiming for 1 million cards and letters — and they need your help.

Can YOU send a card or letter to a US serviceman or servicewoman this holiday season?  Whatever your politics, one thing we can all agree on is that no one should be alone during the holidays — and, as the following video makes clear, no matter how far away our soldiers, sailors, pilots and marines are from their homes this holiday season, they certainly don’t have to be alone.

Here’s how you can help.

    On behalf of everyone at Pitney Bowes and the American Red Cross, thank you for all of your support in helping to spread the word about the “Holiday Mail for Heroes” program.

    We would like you to know that we’ve not only reached the goal of delivering one million cards to US service members, veterans and military families, but we surpassed it! And it’s all because people like you and your blog readers who got involved. View the following video for more details and a personal message of thanks from all of us: http://blip.tv/file/1643672/.

    We could not have done it without you.
