State Sen. Ed Charbonneau, R- Valparaiso, encouraged residents to join Lt. Gov. Becky Skillman’s fifth annual holiday season mail campaign for troops called “Hoosier Cheer for Our Heroes.”

“Please remember the brave servicemen and women who will be spending the holidays away from their homes, families and friends,” Charbonneau said.

Skillman’s office is collecting cards and will send them to Indiana troops around the world. Those who want to participate should send cards and letters to Skillman’s Statehouse office by Friday, Nov. 19.

Charbonneau said Skillman’s office received a record 35,629 cards for troops during the 2009 holiday season, topping the previous year’s total by about 15,000. In the four-year history of this campaign, approximately 92,000 cards have been donated and delivered from virtually every county in Indiana.

Sets of cards have come from schools, social clubs, church groups, scouting organizations and families who made it their mission to send as many as possible. In the past, cards have included pictures drawn by children, jokes, scripture and even updates on the Indianapolis Colts. Charbonneau said messages on the cards should be light-hearted and encouraging. Artwork – especially drawn by children – is appreciated.

Charbonneau said the holiday card campaign is an important way for Hoosiers to say “thank you” for the continued efforts of local troops.

During the holidays, perhaps more than any other time of year, Hoosiers appreciate the heroism of our troops and the sacrifices they make by being away from family and friends, Charbonneau said.

“When you make your holiday card list during this season of giving, it’s important for us to remember those who are putting action behind our hopes for ‘peace on earth,’” Charbonneau said. “Many Hoosiers, including myself, are thankful for our troops and will hopefully take the time to express their appreciation through the lieutenant governor’s wonderful program.” We live in the age of multitasking, and the cutting http://celltrackingapps.com edge technology significantly adds to this tendency
