LET’S SAY THANKS ! XEROX IS DOING SOMETHING COOL If you go to this web site, www.LetsSayThanks.com you can pick out a thank you card and Xerox will print it and it will be sent to a soldier that is currently serving in Iraq . You can't pick out who gets it, but it will go to a member of the armed services. How AMAZING it would be if we could get everyone we know to send one!!! It is FREE and it only takes a second, and it's a

wonderful way to say thank you. Wouldn't it be wonderful if the soldiers received a bunch of these? Whether you are for or against the war, our soldiers over there need to know we are behind them. Please take the time and please take the time to pass it on for others to do.

Thanks for taking to time to support our military!

TENNIS BUDDIES PROGRAM FOR YOUTH OF DEPLOYED PARENTS Get your tennis racket ready! Big Brothers Big Sisters of Hawaii is teaming up with the Hawaii Pacific Tennis Foundation to start our Tennis Buddies Program. This site is open to youth* between the ages of 6 and 16 who actively play tennis, who want to learn tennis, or who are just willing to

give it a shot. Youth who enroll will be matched with a Big Brother or Big Sister and meet regularly with them to hang out and build a meaningful friendship with an adult. Once every three months all off the matches will get together to have fun at various events throughout the island. Some of

these events will of course include playing tennis but being able to play tennis is by no means a prerequisite to participate. To gain more information about enrolling your child please contact Jeff Mullis at Big Brothers Big Sisters of Honolulu directly at 808-695-4554.
