We get questions all the time from teachers if using AnySoldier.com is a way their students can write letters to the Sailors or how to go about it.
Start by reading ALL the home page, then the FAQ (this) page. It will help a lot if you do your homework prior to using this site or trying to organize any effort to write to the Sailors.
There are any number of ways you can have your students show their support of the Sailors, but here is a suggestion:
Make it a homework assignment for the students to read the AnySoldier.com web site.
We *strongly* encourage that their parents also be involved in this.
Ask the students to pick their favorite contact, and write a short note why.
Then have an in-class discussion on the web site, and set up some kind of competition on who the best contact(s) are (this can be by a drawing by young students, a paper by older ones, or a debate by even older students) and the class picks the contact(s) the entire class will then support.
This really gets the students to not only get behind your idea because they will quickly learn that they CAN make a difference, but will then be smart enough to help you pull off your intended project. With luck, this will spark not only their interest, but may help getting their parents involved.
Another often asked question is can they send all the letters/drawings in one package to the same address, or do they need to be in separate envelopes? The answer is both. Either way works. Be mindful that you don't want to send 37 letters to a contact that is supporting only 3 folks...
Also, be SURE to read the "Can I do a collection drive?" (#7) above on this page.
