Operation Write Home for Deployed Heroes

    Are you an avid card-maker? Is your stamp room being inundated with your home-made creations like my stamp room is? Have you ever thought of donating your cards to our deployed heros?
    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!

    Operation Write Home's mission is to support our nation’s armed forces by sending blank greeting cards to write home on, as well as cards of gratitude to encourage them.
    I will be sending a box of cards in the next few weeks. Operation Write Home has 3 different addresses you can mail your cards to, that are listed on their blog. If any of you local girls would like to add some of your creations to my box, please let me know. Remember-no glitter on the cards!
