Hello Stampers…Hope all of you are doing well! Don’t have a card for you right now, but was wondering if you would join me in this quest???
I have recently joined this great site called Operation Write Home and to make a long explanation short…what happens is the cards that we have made that we no longer want, well they get sent to the troops that are serving all over the world for our country, and in turn they send them home to their families and friends. Isn’t that just an awesome cause! So my point is…if anyone wants to ship me their cards that they no longer want and they are A2 envelope size I would be happy to take them off your hands and ship them to the appropriate people. Also, I will provide the envelopes too!!!!. Or you can join me and ship them yourselves. They do have a couple guidelines….no glitter, not bulky cards, and if they are made with dark cardstock we have to line them with white so the troops can write messages to their family. I was so excited when I came across this great site!!
Here is a link above and if you want to check it out yourself and if you have any questions or need my address, let me know!!!
1,601,798 handcrafted cards have been deployed since 2007! Isn’t that AWESOME!!!

This is a great cause Nancy. I’ve been following them on Facebook for a while now and always mean to make some to send in. But, as you know, I’m a little talent challenged. 😉 Another thing I had seen on their page once is that they were requesting that nothing be handwritten on the cards. It seems it caused confusion one time when a wife received a card that was done in a woman’s handwriting.
