NORMAN — In honor of Veterans Day, the Oklahoma Alpha Chapter of Pi Beta Phi at The University of Oklahoma partnered with Cosmopolitan magazine and Maybelline NY to collect handwritten messages of support for American troops overseas.

The OU Pi Phi women and other OU Panhellenic women wrote messages on postcards, then kissed each of the cards. For every postcard message gathered by the fraternity women, Cosmopolitan magazine donated $1 to the USO. The USO will send the cards to soldiers later this year in care packages.

The postcard collection is a part of the annual Cosmopolitan Kisses for the Troops campaign. Cosmopolitan has donated more than $100,000 to the USO and collected tens of thousands of “kisses” for the troops in the last three years.
