A Contest That Benefits Our Troops

Pentel and Operation Gratitude are teaming up for National Handwriting Day (January 23) to sponsor Heros Worth Writing For (click for more information.) 
The Official Rules are, "Handwrite a letter to one of our United States Military members expressing your thanks for their courage and sacrifice. Letters must be handwritten and fit on one side of an 8.5" x 11" sheet of paper."

 All letters must be postmarked on or before January 31st to the following address. You also need to include your name, address, and email address on a separate sheet of paper so they have a way to contact you if you are the Grand Prize winner or one of the 4 Runner-ups. Please note that this contest is open to those under 18, however a parent permission slip must accompany the letter. 
    Pentel of America, Ltd. - Marketing Department
    C/O Heroes Worth Writing For
    4000 E. Airport Drive, Suite C
    Ontario, CA 91761
I encourage everyone to take 5 minutes out of their day to write a letter and submit it. It is the least we can do to show our support for those who give up years of their lives sacrificing so much for us. Remember... Their Sacrifice. Our Freedom.
