Canadian soldiers overseas will be getting a little something in the mail from thousands of British Columbians this Christmas. Actually, it will be a big something.
Four-foot by five-foot Christmas cards, 23 in all, will be touring Sears stores across the province until Dec. 24.
The Canadian Forces Personnel Support Agency and Sears Canada is getting Canadians to sign on to support our troops.
Barb Lapointe is a military wife whose husband has seen active duty in Afghanistan twice.
"This program has allowed the deployed to have a connection with home and a sense of normalcy in a harsh and foreign environment," she said.
"When (the cards) are received they will have a big impact on troops who know it was on Canadian soil."
