Xerox is doing something cool for the troops--please participate
Subject: XEROX IS DOING SOMETHING COOL

If you go to this web site, www.LetsSayThanks.com you can pick out a thank you card and Xerox will print it and it will be sent to a soldier that is currently serving in Iraq . You can't pick out who gets it, but it will go to a member of the armed services.
How AMAZING it would be if we could get everyone we know to send one!!! It is FREE and it only takes a second.
Wouldn't it be wonderful if the soldiers received a bunch of these? Whether you are for or against the war, our soldiers over there need to know we are behind them.
This takes just 10 seconds and it's a wonderful way to say thank you. Please take the time and please take the time to pass it on for others to do. We can never say enough thank you's.

Thanks for taking to time to support our military!

2. Xerox supports the troops!
:woohoo:

Let Xerox make 300,000 troop copies and send them out to fight (win?) their corporate war.

11. You know, there wasn't a company more committed to Affirmative Action
than Xerox. That was, at one time, an initiative that was supported by the Democrats. I'm not saying that this sometimes gets taken to extremes, since I've experienced both sides of the fence,but I am saying that before companies were put to the squeeze because of crooked Wall Street stock recommendations, they had some remarkably good hearted CEOs.

3. Thank you for this, dooda.
An organization in our town has been writing letters and sending items that the Soldiers request through anysoldier.com, since Iraq.

5. Done, that was easy. Here are the choices of messages.
There are also different kid's drawings to select.

Thank you.

Thank you so much for your service, being away from your home, family and friends. I just want to let you know that I appreciate it and thank you for it. Please come back safe and soon.

We stand behind you and support you all the way. Thank you.

I appreciate what you all are doing for our freedom. As a veteran I know what you are going through. Thank you.

Sending you big hugs and cheer from home. Thank you so much for your service and bravery. Come home soon!

Thank you for your service. Your bravery and strength of character represent what America stands for. Bless you!

Its a great honor to be able to thank you for serving our country. You're very brave for the service you're doing for freedom!

Thank you for all you do. You portray what we Americans value most...freedom. Thank you for your commitment and bravery. May this card help bring you good health, clarity of mind and the courage you need to be successful. Each of you play such an important role in protecting our country. Please know that we are all behind your efforts and appreciate you and pray for you daily. You are all heroes to us!

I cannot find the words to express how grateful my family and I are that you are putting yourself in harm's way to protect our country. The U.S.A. is the land of the free and the home of the brave...but only because of courageous people like you. We wish you and your fellow troop members complete safety throughout your tour of duty. May you return home soon to a true hero's welcome. Thank you.

We dont know each other and will probably never meet, but I want you to know that you and all of our troops are in our hearts and prayers each day. Please always remember what you're doing will always be appreciated and never forgotten. I wish you all the best and pray for your safe and speedy return home to your family and friends. Thank you.

9. Unfortunately, I so completely do not support the war
that I cannot send any messages to the soldiers who are over there killing innocent civilians in our name.

Remind me again why we are in imminent danger from Afghanistan or Iraq if we do not continue to occupy those countries?

14. um, i doubt they're doing it unless they're getting more than they give.
i don't suppport their phoney charities. if they want to do something for the troops, they're perfectly capable of doing it on their own. they're probably vacuuming & collating emails or something.

send your own card if you think it's 'nice'.
