We are asking individuals, schools, churches, businesses, and other organizations to write cards, letters, emails, and prayer messages of appreciation for our military, past and present. It is our goal to see that our military – active, reserve, and veterans – receive these messages, whether they are serving at home, abroad, or are injured in hospitals. To get started, read the guidelines below, then find a location nearest you on our Drop-off Location list so your notes of appreciated can be sent to our troops. We recommend that you contact the location via phone or email to be sure they can accept your cards and letters.

We appreciate you including a donation of any size with your letters or through our "Donate" page. A Million Thanks is only able to offer the program through the generous support of people like you! Your donation is tax deductible through our IRS approved 501(c)3 tax ID# 26-0361789.

Due to privacy and security, we do not distribute names or addresses of service members to anyone for any reason. Because we get thousands of letters each week, we ask that you address the letters generically. We cannot send specifically-addressed cards or letters.
