One Million Cards for Bowe launched
November 18, 2013
Hailey, Idaho – As the only living American POW,
Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl approaches four and a half
years in captivity, the residents of Bowe’s
hometown have launched an international project
to send one million Christmas cards to Bowe in
care of the White House.
“This project has been designed to send a
message to the White House, Congress, and Senate
that we want Bowe Bergdahl home where he
belongs," said event co-host Stefanie O’Neill.
“In the past, cards send to Bowe through various
levels of government have been ‘returned to
sender;' we are hoping that the Obama
Administration will have the good sense to not
only hear our message but to facilitate a way to
get these cards to Bowe through the
International Red Cross or other agencies.”
This event will have a very special celebrity
Sarah Downs, the current Miss Idaho, will be
helping get the message out to the World that
cards are needed for Sgt. Bergdahl.
“We are blessed to have this talented,
beautiful, intelligent, and compassionate young
women on board with us, representing Bowe’s home
State of Idaho, in this massive endeavor”, said
"I feel so blessed to be able to spread the
message that we have not forgotten Bowe Bergdahl.
America should always take care of their own,
especially those who put their lives on the line
for our freedom,” Downs said “I know that every
single letter will be a reminder to the White
House of the importance of bringing Bowe home.
He fought for us, and now it's time that we
fight for him. With the help of not only
Idahoans, but all Americans, we can make a
difference for this hero."
