Deadlines are important to follow – as we need to get the cards out in time to be written on and mailed home in time for holidays. General cards can be sent anytime.
Contacts request a large (325+ cards) or medium box (150+), and each box has a selection of the coming holiday as well as all our standard themes – thinking of you, love, missing you, birthday, and thank you.
Holiday cards start to ship out 8-10 weeks before the date to allow plenty of time to get to remote locations and back home in time for the holiday itself. Your help is critical in getting the cards to our office well in advance of deadlines so we can reach the remote units early!
A note about needs for AnyHero mail:
At Christmastime, we get a LOT of season-specific mail, and that’s fine – but please, for other times of year, make hero mail GENERIC; meaning no “Happy Valentines Day, Hero” or “Happy Easter, Hero” type of mail. We have tons of sorting to do with the cards, and keeping track of which mail has to take precedence over other letters that came in earlier is a surprisingly monumental task. Mail that can be sent anytime is absolutely best. Thanks!
