Corporate Holiday Cards Company GalleryCollection.com Contributes to Operation Gratitude's 400,000th Care Package

RIDGEFIELD PARK, NJ--(Marketwire - December 11, 2008) - Prudent Publishing's GalleryCollection.com, the leading corporate holiday cards company in the nation, announced today it will be making a special contribution of several surprise gifts for Operation Gratitude's 400,000th care package to deployed soldiers in Iraq and Afghanistan.

GalleryCollection.com recently donated 28,000 holiday cards to the 2008 Army-Navy Game to benefit Operation Gratitude's "Letters to Heroes" letter writing campaign. In conjunction with the Philadelphia Sports Congress, who is donating two tickets to the 400,000th care package recipient for the 2009 Army-Navy Game, the corporate holiday cards company is sponsoring the recipient's transportation to get to Philadelphia from wherever in the world he or she may be.

Additionally, GalleryCollection.com is donating an assortment box of 30 all occasion greeting cards plus five $100 gift certificates to be used towards future purchases on the company's website. "We recognize that the care package recipient may not need to purchase greeting cards anytime soon," mentioned H.L. DeVore, Chief Marketing Officer of GalleryCollection.com. "But the gift certificates can be shared with family and friends to purchase holiday cards, birthday cards, photo Christmas cards... whatever it may be. Just as long as the donation helps spread some cheer."

Operation Gratitude has been sending care packages to individual service members deployed overseas since 2003. With the help of over 500 volunteers at Operation Gratitude's package assembly in Van Nuys, CA, the 400,000th care package will hit the assembly line on Saturday, December 13. Media and press are invited to attend the milestone celebration.
