Cardmakers: A Call to Action

We are very excited about a project we've decided to do to support our troops.
We've teamed with an organization called Operation Write Home to make cards to send to our troops overseas. The cards are for the soldiers to use to write notes home (as they say, there's no Hallmark stores in Afghanistan!!)

They need handmade cards and I know you girls will come through with some beautiful work.
The most requested themes they get from the soldiers are:

thinking of you, birthday, love, miss you, and thanks

We have a display set up in the store and a box for you to place your cards in. We'll have some events planned and you'll be hearing alot about this from us! We have a goal of making 250 Cards by Memorial Day. Help us meet this goal!

I wanted to share with you a letter that was sent regarding these cards:

My name is Capt J.S., I am stationed at Balad Iraq. My family and friends love these cards..our chaplain keeps a box outside his office (they are starting to run low btw) I just finished writing a “Hello” card to someone who sent our unit a great box of treats…
Thanks again, you are all very skilled..these are gorgeous!

You do not need to sign up--just drop cards by anytime the store is open.
There are a few guidelines to follow for the cards so we have brochures available outlining that (such as no glitter on the cards--for safety reasons).

C'mon you guys....get cardmaking and help us meet our goal!! Thanks!
