The syndicated BERT SHOW is sending out a ‘Big Thank You” to our troops this holiday season. The show is kicking off their “Big Thank You” campaign this FALL, giving thanks to all the men and women that serve our country. The annual effort aims to provide every service person deployed outside the United States with a handwritten Thank You letter on Thanksgiving Day.
Since its inception, THE BERT SHOW’s “Big Thank You” campaign has collected more than one million handwritten letters. School systems, corporations and celebrities across the country have shown their support by writing per-sonalized letters and encouraging students, customers and fans to do the same. The campaign has received letters from all over the UNITED STATES, as well as PUERTO RICO and SPAIN, including some letters written in Chinese and braille. THE BERT SHOW has even received calls from First Lady MICHELLE OBAMA and former President BILL CLINTON, congratulating them on the “Big Thank You” campaign’s overall success in previous years.
All letters must be submitted by FRIDAY, OCTOBER 30th in order for soldiers to receive the letters on THANKSGIVING Day.
