Goodbyes are never easy…

This is a very hard post to write. It’s been eight years since CFS was started back in 2006 when a group of friends mailed our first shipment to a Chaplain who was deployed. It started out as a small group of friends supporting a friends husband and turned into a very wonderful non-profit organization that I have had the wonderful experience of running for several years now.

Unfortunately life circumstances have gotten in the way and financially I am unable to carry this on any longer. I always promised myself I would only do it as long as I could afford it and the time has come for me to admit that day.

I have met some wonderful people during this journey, I hope those people will keep in touch. I thank all of you who have contributed whether it be once or over and over. I couldn’t have done this without each and every one of you.

Please do not send any more cards. I will be sending what I have now but no more mailings will be going out. If you are looking for someplace to send cards Operation Write Home is another organization you can look into.  Please be sure to follow their guidelines. 

Again,  I thank you all from the bottom of my heart and wish you all the very best.

Much Love,

Round 4 Shipped

Happy Spring Everyone!

Round 4 has shipped, 1745 cards. Thank you to all of you who sent cards as well as donations. There were a lot of thank you cards for the troops this time, I was able to get a good bunch in every box which was great! Thank you so much for that! The soldiers will love them!

I have to say I am still receiving a lot of cards that do not meet the card specs as well as a lot of cards that do not have envelopes. Please be sure to read the Card Specs over to the right ------------------------------------------->>>>>>    before you send your cards. Thank you!

Again, thank you all for your support! I appreciate you more than you know!

Lots of Updates!

I am sorry, it’s been awhile. Lots going on in my life at home that has been interfering with my free time so while have been sending out cards on time I have had very little time for much else so the updates and emails have had to be put on the back burner. For this I apologize.   Please know that my appreciation for all of you has not been lacking one bit!

1680 Easter cards have been mailed!  Thank you all for your hard work, dedication and postage donations!

1740 Cards were shipped for Round 2.  Again, Thank You all for your hard work, dedication and postage donations!

2935 Cards were shipped for Round 1. And  a very late Thank You all for your hard work, dedication and postage donations!

So yes, I am very behind, I am going to spend some time trying to play catch up on emails today but I will not get to them all. Please know I am working on it. I’ve got a lot going on right now and you have not been forgotten and are not unappreciated. Sometimes life dishes out more than you can take but I’m taking it in stride and pushing through it.  I appreciate all of your continued support.
