Back in March, the Senate approved a bill that designates Sept. 11 as a National Day of Service and Remembrance. With our servicemen overseas in mind, head to Mac & Murphy over the next few days for an event called Red, Write, & Blue.

The Charleston paper company is teaming up with Jess Riley PR and Twin Muses to honor active U.S. military personnel through the Adopt a U.S. Soldier organization.

Stop by Mac & Murphy through Sept. 10 and you’ll get 10 percent off select letterpress and greeting cards.

Here’s the very awesome catch: All they ask is that you take a few moments while you’re in the store (or in the writing garden out back) to write your words of encouragement or a note of thanks to be sent off to a soldier who is serving overseas. Not only will Mac & Murphy take care of the postage for you, but you’re taking the time to help someone other than yourself.
