Jordan’s Hallmark & Veterans Resource Network will send Recordable Christmas Storybooks to overseas Idaho soldiers 
Soldiers will record stories in their own voice, and books will be shipped back to their children in time for Christmas

 

BOISE, Idaho (Nov. 5) -- Jordan’s Hallmark and the Veterans Resource Network are working together to send Hallmark Recordable Christmas Storybooks to Idaho soldiers who are currently serving overseas, and they are hoping that holiday shoppers will help in the effort. 
Up to 2,000 service men and women will receive a copy of Frosty the Snowman, The Night Before Christmas, or the Very First Christmas Recordable Storybook. The soldiers will record the story in their own voice, and the books will be sent back to their children in time for Christmas morning.
Jenne’ & Philip Johnson, owners of six Jordan’s Hallmark stores in Boise, Meridian and Nampa, said the public can help in the effort by purchasing the books and donating them back to send to soldiers. Jordan’s has the books in stock and will pay all costs to ship the books overseas, and the Veterans Resource Network will make sure the books get distributed to deployed Idaho soldiers.

The books feature technology that records the reader’s voice, which is then captured within the pages of the book. When a page is turned, the book automatically plays the text on that page in the reader’s voice, enabling a child to hear mom or dad read the story, even while deployed overseas. The recording lasts for the life of the book.

 “Donations like this mean so much to our troops overseas and their families back home,” said Johnson. “We are working with the Veterans Resource Network who are experts at getting things to our soldiers overseas, but we have a very short window of opportunity before the holidays. We are counting on the public’s support to help make this a success and we encourage people to come in and purchase a recordable book as soon as possible. We hope to have the books all packed and shipped off overseas by early December.”

Johnson said the books normally cost $29.95 but will be on sale for $19.95 on Nov. 6th & 7th.

ON TV     An instant dance.

     The stars on ``Dancing With the Stars'' on ABC usually have at least 5 days to practice for the following week. But, tonight is different. Each of the couples will perform two individual dances: one ballroom number which they've been practicing, and one ``instant'' dance, which they haven't. It'll be a Latin dance with music they'll get when the show begins. ``Castle'' is next.  More on the TV tonight link.
