Dear Treasure Hunters:
Watch for the announcement that ThanksUSA's American History Treasure Hunt Three
is to begin Thanksgiving Day, November 22, 2007. This time the hunt
runs through August 15, 2008. We hope you will once again help us
"Treasure our Troops" with your support of the hunt and the scholarship
fund for the kids and spouses of the troops.
We'd like to share with you -- from America Supports You -- an
exciting initiative that will be taking place over the Thanksgiving
holidays. It's a text messaging program called "Giving Thanks." It
provides Americans the opportunity to quickly and easily give an
expression of thanks to our military men and women. Please see below.
The ThanksUSA Team
WHO: America Supports You is a Department of Defense program that recognizes citizens' support for our military and their families, at home and abroad, and
connects individuals and organizations who wish to directly support the
troops and their families. ASY is launching a text messaging program
called "Giving Thanks".
WHAT: Giving Thanks is an interactive America Supports You program
taking place during the Thanksgiving holiday to offer citizens an
opportunity to say thank you to the men and women who serve this
nation. Major mobile wireless providers, including AT&T, Verizon,
Sprint Nextel, and T-Mobile, provide access to the America Supports You Text Message program.
WHEN: People can text a message of thanks to 8-9-2-7-9,
beginning at 6am EST on Saturday, November 17, and ending at midnight,
PDT on November 22, Thanksgiving Day.
WHY: The goal is for people to take a moment during the
Thanksgiving holiday to think about those who are serving this nation,
and act in a way that demonstrates they appreciate their sacrifices.
Giving Thanks offers a unifying moment for the nation, during a time in
which families traditionally come together and express gratitude for
things large and small that contribute to their lives. The United
States currently has brave military men and women serving in 177
countries. These troops and their families will be informed about how
many people have texted in their thanks and will get to see many of the
messages, reminding them that people back home do care.
HOW: On Thanksgiving Day America Supports You will
tabulate the number of messages sent to the troops. The volume of text
messages will serve as a reminder to our military that the folks back
home are grateful for their service.
About America Supports You
Since its formation three years ago, the America Supports You
program has welcomed over 300 grassroots organizations and 35 corporate
partners to its team. Many America Supports You team members support
the troops through letter writing, care packages, helping the wounded
when they return home, assisting military families, sending an email,
or making a kind gesture -- to learn more about how you can help please
