With Thanksgiving just around the corner, our staff at VoiceNation wanted to do something BIG to impact the lives of others around the world. So, we decided to participate in The Bert Show’s “Big Thank You” to show our gratitude for our troops currently deployed outside the United States!
Many of these men and women serving overseas will not be home to spend Thanksgiving with their families. The Big Thank You 2013 gave us the opportunity to send hand-written letters to our military personnel, letting them know how much we appreciate what they do and the daily sacrifices they make so that we can live in freedom.
On October 16th, our staff came together and spent the afternoon writing thoughtful, encouraging, funny, creative, and purposeful letters with the intent to give thanks, build up, and simply brighten a soldier’s day.
On November 1st, The Bert Show, a morning program of Atlanta-based radio station Q100, collected tens of thousands of letters written by participants from all over the country. All letters are being mailed just in time for our military personnel to receive them by Thanksgiving.
From The Bert Show:
In 2007, 375,000 letters to troops all over the world were successfully sent. In 2011, The Bert Show community helped to express a BIG THANK YOU with over 405,000 letters. Learn more about The Bert Show’s Big Thank You 2013 at http://bigthankyou2013.com/.
