Family is amazed at how I keep up with mail
What a great note sent to Caro – check out the popularity list! As we regularly encourage, general sentiments work best. He lists congratulations – a reminder that a birthday card with a congratulations sentiment is a lot more flexible than one with a birthday sentiment. Unless it has balloons and cake, that is 🙂 -Sandy
I’ve already used similar cards and my family is amazed at how I keep up with mail. It’s mostly the cards that make it easy and it give our families reassurance that we’re doing well.
Thanks to you, Kris, and Sandy for leading up this operation and having such a positive impact on not only us troops, but more importantly our families. The cards have allowed me to tell my wife that she had it harder than me. Folks don’t realize that is true, my wife is at home taking care of the kids, the house, a full-time job, and still has to worrying about me, so your cards are my way of thanking her, reminding her of our love, letting her know about my week, and providing encouragement to her as often as I can write. So THANK YOU!
Cards that go over great:
#1 – Patriotic w/ nothing on the inside for multi-purpose
#2 – Love themed ones for Wife, girlfriend, fiancée
#3 – Ones to tell the kids hello, love, and for encouragement
#4 – General Congrats / Congrats for kids (i.e. kid themed)
#5 – Thank you, but the Patriotic ones work best for that anyway
I’ve noticed that our new base is seriously lacking in card/writing stock for our deployed men and women (i.e. none, the Chaplin didn’t even know what about the program), so your support will help allow thousands of troops get caught up on their writing. Please don’t send too big of boxes and if possible smaller boxes allow us to use the box as the grab box for the cards. If there are baggies in there, then some folks will go through and collect a few for immediate use and later (it’s really dusty/dirty here).
