To create a free, customized thank you card for military service members serving overseas and veterans living in VA hospitals, Americans can download the free Shutterfly Thank the Troops Facebook app. To distribute the cards, Shutterfly is partnering with A Million Thanks, a nonprofit dedicated to thanking U.S. military men and women for their sacrifices, dedication and service to our country. Together, Shutterfly and A Million Thanks hope to send more than 1.5 million Shutterfly cards of appreciation in time for Veterans Day.

“Shutterfly’s vision is to make the world a better place by helping people share life’s joy, and we are thrilled that throughout the month of November, all Americans can help us express gratitude for the men, women and their families who serve our country,” said John Boris, chief marketing officer of Shutterfly. “We hope our Thank the Troops Campaign will bring joy to our service men and women around the globe.”

Along with partners Chase and Verizon Wireless, Shutterfly hopes to get a thank you card into the hands of every military service member and veteran in a VA hospital this holiday season. Sending a free card is easy. Americans can access Shutterfly’s Thank the Troops Facebook app, select a card, add a personal message or photo and share the card to their Facebook feed to inspire friends to create their own card. Shutterfly will take care of the printing and delivery.

The completed cards will be distributed to troops and veterans with the help from A Million Thanks organization. To learn more and create a card, visit
