Dear Tricia, Rita, and all my Club Scrap friends,
I was a little disappointed when the OWH cards were turned in at last retreat, because only a few cards were [AnyHero Cards] written to our service men and women. When I returned home, I decided to challenge myself to make and send at least 50 AnyHero cards to Club Scrap.
I went to my friends and encouraged them to make cards, fill them out and bring them to me, or, take some of mine to write on, etc. As of the writing of this letter, I have collected nearly 100 cards written and addressed to the members of our armed forces. I recently had one knee replaced, and by the time you receive this, the second knee will also have been replaced.
|Just a sampling of the 100+ cards Libby sent to us.|
I truly believe this is an important need, and this cause is near and dear to my heart, as I have a daughter in the Air Force. I know how much a simple note can mean to someone overseas.
|We couldn't resist sharing this hand-drawn message for one of our Heroes.|
Wish I was with you!
Club Scrap is proud to partner with Operation Write Home on their mission to supply heroes with handmade greeting cards to send home to their loved ones. AnyHero Mail consists of cards containing hand-written messages of encouragement and gratitude for those serving in the armed forces. These cards top off every box of cards OWH sends, and they are distributed to those men and women who might not normally receive much mail. For more information about AnyHero Mail, click here.
We invite our blog readers to join us in this great cause. Of course, cards can be sent directly to OWH using the information on their website; however, we recognize that the authorized OWH shippers have a BIG job preparing cards for their journey to our Heroes. Therefore, cards created for OWH can be sent to our offices at any time. We are happy to help with the sorting and tucking, as well as adding liners and stamping the OWH logo onto cards (if needed), before they are bulk-shipped to OWH...hopefully making their job much easier! To participate, send cards created using the OWH guidelines to:
