#GoodNews: Woman's Efforts Lead to160k Handwritten Cards For Military

17 years ago, Laura Landerman-Garber started a holiday tradition in the basement of her New Hampshire home– writing holiday greeting cards for American servicemen and women stationed overseas. She now receives cards from all over the country. This year alone, Laura has received over 160,000 cards to send to US troops around the world.

“The thought of someone being away at a time when in our culture, the holidays are all about gathering together… for me, I wanted to be able to reach out and just maybe give a little bit of a bridge so that person who is far away feels a little tiny bit closer to home.”

Laura will be collecting holiday cards until December 15th.
