Cards off to OP Santa Claus and Afghanistan!
We would like to thank everyone who sent in greeting cards to send to the troops through the wonderful operation called Santa Claus from the CFPSA. We received hundreds of cards and in addition we are sending the banners that you have signed at Red Friday Rallies. We will be looking forward to doing this again next year. Season's Greetings from the volunteers are Red Fridays Foundation of Canada.
Please note that the Red Fridays' greeting card program deadline is now passed and we are no longer accepting greeting cards for this year year. For more information on sending gifts or messages to the troops, please visit the CFPSA website for more details.
Red Fridays Foundation of Canada has made special arrangements with Operation Santa Claus to send your greeting cards to the soldiers serving in Afghanistan.
All cards must be submitted to Red Fridays by Oct 26, 2007 in order to make it on the flight. Please note that there are some rules to remember when sending a greeting card to Afghanistan. Please do not include any money, cheques or gifts inside the envelope. There is only space available for the greeting card. Do not send cards larger than 6"x9". Do not send parcels. You may place a return address on the back of the envelope and address the card on the front to as stated below. The cards will be given out at random to the serving men and woman currently in Afghanistan during the holidays. ***Gifts to the Military Family Fund can be donated directly through the CFPSA. For more information on the Canadian Forces Personnel Support Agency visit their site here.
Families of serving Men and Woman in the CF can send parcels and greeting cards/ letters free of charge beginning Oct 29th 2008. Canada Post services announced recently with this press release. A list of address for family members to send to are located at the Forces Webiste.
We have created a template card that you can down load. It is a standard size card and fits into a 6x9 envelope.
