As families across America wait for Santa Claus and gather together in the holiday spirit, hundreds of thousands of men and women wear our flag on their uniforms around the world. Their service on behalf of all of us means they’ll miss making memories with their own families.
We know that missing the holidays when you’re separated from your loved ones can add to the stress of deployment. At Cell Phones For Soldiers, our mission since 2004 has been to connect our deployed troops to their families and friends while they’re away from home serving our country. We have provided more than 300 million minutes of free talk time to servicemen and women.
Those minutes are meant for ordinary moments and casual conversation, the daily connections that can help our men and women stay involved with life at home. But they’re also for milestones like Christmas, New Year’s, Thanksgiving, Hanukkah, first steps and graduations, heartbreaks and report cards and new jobs.
This Christmas, give the gift of connection and donate to Cell Phones For Soldiers. Just $5 gives an hour of talk time to our men and women in uniform, providing opportunities for them to catch up on daily life and bridge the distance during holidays and other important moments.
We wish all of our troops and their families joy, peace and love this Christmas, and our unending gratitude for the sacrifices they make on our behalf. Merry Christmas, and happy holidays!
