Card Gnome to give 10,000 Free Greeting Cards to Military through Cards and Heroes Holiday Campaign
This holiday season, Card Gnome would like to thank our military for their service and sacrifice. We understand that sharing the holidays with the ones you love is part of what makes this time of year so magical. Many of our neighbors, friends, and family who are actively serving our country cannot be close to home, so we’d like to do our part to help.
“Sharing the holidays with family and friends make this time of year special in so many ways. Time spent with family creates memories that last a lifetime. But this time of year is also difficult for the many service members and their families who may be separated by great distances,” said Chad McGimpsey, President and Co-Founder of Card Gnome, “To help bridge that distance we created Cards and Heroes, providing free holiday greeting cards to members of the military to send home to their loved ones.”
Through the Cards and Heroes program, active service members can choose one free greeting card to send to their loved ones simply by entering an email address ending in .mil when registering on the cardgnome.com site. After registering, service members may choose a holiday card of their choice to be sent, postage paid, on a date that they select. While a card certainly cannot replace having our service members home during the holidays, receiving something that we can hold which sends their love helps them not seem quite so far away, even if just for a moment.
Card Gnome has also made it easy to participate with the American Red Cross “Mail for Heroes” campaign, by giving those who are not part of the military the ability to send a card of appreciation to service members and veterans this holiday season. All cards sent to service members are $4.99 and include all postage and shipping costs.

Send your love home
We understand how hard it is to be away from your loved ones during the holiday season. So we want you to send a card home to your loved ones on us. Simply register with an email address ending in .mil, and your first card will be free (including postage). You can even write the card now and schedule it to be delivered on Thanksgiving, Hanukkah, Christmas, or any day you wish.
Send your thanks
We would like to help you send your gratitude to our service members. That’s why we’ve made it easy to participate in the American Red Cross Holiday Mail for Heroes campaign. When you find a card you like, simply choose “Send to a hero” in the delivery options, and the card will be delivered to an American service member or veteran. It’s that easy!
