Cards Update

I just mailed 750 Christmas cards to the troops! Our last mailing for 2009! Thank you everyone so much!

I just need to give you all a few reminders:

Please send handmade cards only, no store bought cards. While we appreciate that you want to help this is a very small outfit where I am shipping these cards myself and when I receive a huge box of store bought cards I just can't pay to ship those over to Iraq. Please know that I did donate them to a good cause.

Please make sure the cards are BLANK inside. They are not meant for the soldiers to receive, these cards are to be used for the soldiers to send back home to their loved ones since they don't have the means to purchase cards in the desert. If you want to post a note to them you can put it on a sticky note inside the card.

Cards must be A2 sized which is 5.5 x 4.25 (which is an 8.5 x 11 piece of paper cut in half and then folded in half) unless you plan on sending an envelope that fits your card. I don't have envelopes that fit any other sized cards.

Thank you again for all your support!

Cards! Cards! Cards!

I just want to say thank you! My mailbox has been overflowing with cards every day! Thank you everyone! I can’t tell you how excited I am to come home and see a package every day addressed to Cards for Soldiers. I am going to be busy sorting today and hopefully mailing our last 2009 mailing this week! Here’s looking forward to a successful 2010!!!

Oh and I have to say a very SPECIAL Thank You to our anonymous Envelope donor. You know who you are and your generosity was just overwhelming and so very appreciated!
