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.
