1,000,000 VALENTINES FOR TROOPS CAMPAIGN BEGINS
Three Southern California businessmen who last year distributed over 250,000 Valentines and Valentine emails to U.S. servicemen and women, are beginning their 2003 Campaign with a goal of 1,000,000 Valentines. Michael Fleming, 51, David Fleming, 48, and Paul Kramer, 38, are asking for Valentines to be mailed to them for distribution to military personnel at bases all over the world. Valentines will be distributed to military bases beginning February 7th. They prefer handmade Valentines. The majority of Valentines that were sent to them last year were done as school, church or youth group service projects. The Valentine campaign was an offshoot from letter writing campaigns that the Fleming brothers started during the Gulf War in 1991. Valentines are to be mailed or delivered to one of three Southern California distribution locations. The main location is Farrell's Ice Cream Parlour, operated by the Fleming's and Kramer. It is located at 21516 Golden Triangle Road, Santa Clarita, Ca 91350. They can also be sent to Skateland in Northridge and Light of the Canyon UMC in Anaheim. Address for all locations appear on their website. Further details such as mailing addresses and design guidelines can be found on their website at www.ValentinesForTroops.com.
