Give Thanks By Sending Thanks

Tomorrow, Americans will gather together and give thanks for all the blessings of our lives. Some Americans will not have that opportunity, and ironically, they are as a unit one of our greatest blessings. The men and women who keep this nation safe and who protect the freedom and liberty of others will not have the luxury of a holiday from their missions.

Now we can send them a message of thanks straight from our cell phones. The major cell carriers have agreed to participate in The Giving Thanks Campaign, which asks Americans to text a message of support that will get delivered to men and women all over the world wearing the US uniform. All you have to do is send a text message from your cellphone to 89279 to brighten someone's day -- and it won't cost a penny. I sent my message already and received two responses.

I'm including the GTC widget on this post. It shows the latest messages and provides the links back to the website for more information. Give thanks by sending thanks, and let our men and women know that they're in our thoughts and prayers this holiday weekend.
