Default Operation Write Home

Quote:
Operation Write Home began in 2007 with just a few cards made by friends on a message board; what began as an outlet for a hobby has become a much larger mission to help heroes keep in touch with home - and the effort has been joined by thousands of cardmakers!

OWH receives handmade cards donated by crafters across America (and beyond!). Cardmakers range in age, location, and level of skill; cards are provided by individuals and groups, schools and scouts, companies and churches. All have one primary thing in common: a desire to serve those who defend our nation!

Cards are mailed to one of our volunteer shippers in quanities both small and large. The shippers process, sort, repair, and document each donation, and then pack and ship boxes of over 300 cards each to our contacts. Our heroes request cards (families may also request on their behalf; we serve all branches in all deployed locations.

Tax-deductible donations of any size keep this work going - from $1 to any amount - and can be included with card donations to any shipper, mailed separately, or via Paypal. Thank you for partnering with us!

OUR MISSION
Supporting our nation's armed forces by sending blank handmade greeting cards to write home on, as well as cards of gratitude to encourage them.
Link: http://operationwritehome.org/#


This is a very worthy cause. Many service men and women use these cards to send back to their loved ones at home. These handmade cards bring a special touch that is appeciated.

If you aren't crafty, consider donating a few bucks to help with shipping costs!

I can tell you from first hand experience how nice it is to read a letter or card someone has taken the time to write. We love reading about the things people in the states probably consider mundane. It stirs memories of our own families or things we would be enjoying if we were home. When we get letters and cards, we cannot wait to write the persons and thank them and let them know how we are doing while over there. I still have some of my letters from some of the deployments.

I would have posted this in the thread but I can't (henhouse). Again thank you very much for the post.

Our friends at Operation Write Home @opwritehome are having a Spring Thaw Card Drive! Please consider sending cards: http://bit.ly/fAIFrn

It's time for a card drive! Your package of cards can be any quantity....but should be half spring holiday cards (Easter, spring, Mother's Day, and we're including Father's Day so we can get a jump on those!) and half general cards - that means birthday, thinking of you, missing you, love, thanks....all the themes on our desired list here, as well as blank (no sentiment) cards.
