    Default Send a Free Postcard to U.S. Soldiers that have been deploye

    On Monday, June 26 Xerox made an announcement (press release attached) about a website that site allows anyone to write a personalized message on postcards – drawn by kids across the country – which will be printed and sent to deployed forces in Iraq, Afghanistan and elsewhere. The postcards will be printed on Xerox’s iGen3 digital production press and shipped overseas by a non-profit group.

    By sending the link to the Web site www.LetsSayThanks.com to customers, it highlights Xerox’s community involvement and also provides an opportunity to tell them about Xerox’s printing capabilities.
    Feel free to pass this around to your friends, family and any other appropriate contacts.

    Click here to send a free thank you to a U.S. Soldier!

    As of early 2006, nearly 150,000 U.S. soldiers have been deployed to the Middle East. To show our country’s appreciation for their service, Xerox has kicked off a nationwide campaign aimed at saying thank you to our troops. Nearly 12,000 messages printed on Xerox equipment have already been delivered to U.S. soldiers and now, there is a way for you to join us to show your appreciation!

    Visit www.LetsSayThanks.com today to send a free message to the soldiers in one of several postcards designed by children across the country. The signed postcards will be printed on the Xerox iGen3® Digital Production Press and mailed in care packages by military support organization Give2TheTroops.

    Say Thanks in Just Three Easy Steps:
    1. Visit www.LetsSayThanks.com
    2. Click on your favorite design, write a short message of thanks and Xerox does the rest. When you hit “send” don’t forget to enter your address to receive an identical card, printed on the Xerox iGen3® Digital Production Press, delivered to your door.
    3. Does your child or recreation group want to get involved? Submit original artwork anytime for possible use on www.LetsSayThanks.com. Visit the site for complete card design details.

    Press Release:

    www.LetsSayThanks.com forwards customized postcards designed by kids
    ROCHESTER, N.Y., June 26, 2006 – Specialist Tommy Brooks from the 2-130 Illinois Infantry Battalion served a 12-month tour in Iraq – and says there's nothing like getting mail from home.
    “A letter has a sense of warmth and is more personal than e-mail. With regular mail, it’s all yours to keep and take with you when you’re on the move,” said Brooks.
    You can send your appreciation to U.S. soldiers like Specialist Brooks through a new Web site sponsored by Xerox Corporation (NYSE: XRX) at www.LetsSayThanks.com. Launching today, the site allows you to write a personalized message on postcards – drawn by kids across the country – which will be printed and sent to deployed forces in Iraq, Afghanistan and elsewhere.
    Following the success of local community card drives in Atlanta and Phoenix, which delivered thousands of postcards overseas, Xerox created www.LetsSayThanks.com to give people a way to show their support no matter where they live. Visitors simply click on their favorite design, drawn by children ages 6-14, and write a personal message to a soldier. The colorful postcards are then printed on a Xerox iGen3® Digital Production Press and mailed in care packages by the military support organization Give2theTroops.

    “We started this effort so specific communities could get even more involved with supporting their local servicemen and women,” said Mike Brannigan, president of Xerox’s United States Solutions Group. “But when we saw the reaction not only from the public but also from the troops overseas, we moved to an online effort that will allow people from across the U.S. and around the world to send postcards to the men and women of the armed forces.”
    To submit a card, visit www.LetsSayThanks.com, click on your favorite postcard design and personalize it with your message, and then hit submit. If you live in the U.S., you can request a copy of the postcard and message to be delivered to you as well. In addition, postcard designs will continue to rotate with new artwork, so visit the site for details on how to submit new drawings for consideration.
