The Bert Show’s Big Thank You Campaign
Taking Letters till October 27, 2017
Join The Bert Show in giving a “Big Thank You” to our troops this holiday season. ALL The Hits Q100’s morning radio show is kicking off their annual Big Thank You campaign, giving thanks to all the men and women that serve our country. The initiative aims to provide every active service member deployed outside the United States with a handwritten thank you letter on Thanksgiving Day. “The Big Thank You campaign is one of the most rewarding things we do on our show each year,” says Bert Weiss, host of The Bert Show. “This is an ambitious goal, but that’s why we need the entire Atlanta community to help. We appreciate the sacrifices our men and women in our military, as well as their families, make every day which is why we want every single person deployed outside the United States to receive a handwritten thank you letter from home to open at mail call on Thanksgiving.”
Since its inception in 2009, The Bert Show’s Big Thank You campaign has collected more than one million handwritten letters from the nation and beyond. 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 former First Lady Michelle Obama and former President Bill Clinton, congratulating them on the Big Thank You campaign’s overall success in previous years. Listeners are encouraged to show their support by starting a letter drive in their community to help give our troops a much-deserved show of appreciation.
In order for soldiers to receive the letters on Thanksgiving Day, all letters must be submitted by Friday, October 27, 2017. For formatting and submitting guidelines, as well as drop-off and mail-in locations, please visit HERE.
