Operation Write Home Update!

Monday was Veteran's Day, so I thought this would be a great week to share some exciting Operation Write Home updates.


At both our August and October Retreats, our generous attendees donated greeting and AnyHero cards to OWH. As of today, I'm happy to report we have surpassed our goal of 2,013 cards in 2013 by over 1,100 cards!

The founder of Operation Write Home, Sandy Allnock, was recently interviewed by one of her local TV stations. You can check out the video below.

Did you see the package that was delivered during the interview? I wonder who that card shipment was from?

I got to snap a few pics of some of the donated cards before packing them into the very box delivered during Sandy's interview. Wanna see some of the beautiful cards?







Nice, huh? We are a talented bunch, I tell ya! Thank you to all of you who've contributed to this very worthy cause. If you haven't participated yet, we welcome your card donations. Just be sure to check out the OWH website for a list of guidelines before you get started. With your help, we'll will continue to support Operation Write Home as long as our overseas Heroes need cards to send home!

Creatively yours,
Karen
