Al Unser, Jr. and Christmas Cards Company GalleryCollection.com Support Operation Gratitude

RIDGEFIELD PARK, NJ--(Marketwire - December 16, 2008) - In conjunction with Indy 500 champion Al Unser, Jr. and family, Prudent Publishing's GalleryCollection.com, the leading business Christmas cards company in the nation, is pleased to announce its continued support of Operation Gratitude with a special donation to the organization's military care package program.

Unser is donating a signed holiday card with a personal message plus a few pieces of signed memorabilia, all to be sent to deployed troops overseas in Operation Gratitude care packages. GalleryCollection.com is also contributing the proceeds of several holiday cards orders placed by Al Unser, Jr. and family to Operation Gratitude.

Employees of the Christmas cards company noticed that Unser placed orders for personalized holiday cards in October, and Chief Marketing Officer H.L. DeVore decided to call Gina Unser directly to see if the family would be interested in being a part of GalleryCollection.com's efforts to assist Operation Gratitude. The Unsers very much wanted to express a message of goodwill and support to the soldiers in Iraq and Afghanistan, and with their son Chad joining the Air Force as of January 27, they were even more adamant about sharing their supportive sentiments.

In early December, GalleryCollection.com donated 28,000 holiday cards to the Army-Navy Game to benefit Operation Gratitude's "Letters to Heroes" letter writing campaign. And just last week, the Christmas cards company made several special donations to be included in Operation Gratitude's 400,000th care package.
