Join a Worthy Cause - Operation Write Home


I came across an organization called Operation Write Home today on Facebook. After reading their blog, I have been inspired to make cards for this worthy cause.

Here is their mission statement:

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 need to iron out the details, but I plan on holding an event before the end of this month to make cards for the troops in time for the holidays. If you live in or near Ouachita Parish and would like to make cards for the troops as well, please visit my blog again on Monday. I will have the details of when/where posted here then.

Awesome, I am a Stampin' Up! Demo also. I donate all my blog cards, and my demo cards from classes and Workshops when I am done with them. I am currently running a challenge on my blog to benefit OWH. I have set a goal that I want to send 1000 cards to OWH in June. I think it is awesome that you have joined the cause.

Thanks Misti :) I saw that you have your event listed on your DBWS. I need to hold another event soon. I didn't get any response from the last one I did. Any ideas how to get the word out besides your DBWS? I was thinking of setting up a table in front of WalMart to get sign-ups, but I'm not sure if they allow that. I know Michaels & Hobby Lobby didn't when I asked. Although, they did let me leave a flyer.
