You can help our dedicated team in a few targeted ways that will save time and ensure that your cards make it out to our heroes quickly!


  • Check the guidelines and make sure your cards won’t spend time in the card hospital.
  • Mark the backs of your cards with our full name – read more about getting your stamp for the back HERE.
  • Send in envelopes with cards properly tucked – thank you!Download this updated guidelines brochure for info on doing “the tuck” or watch the video HERE.
  • Notify us that your package is enroute with the form below, especially if you are sending holiday cards within 2 weeks of the deadline. That helps us to plan by knowing how many we’ll have for the final boxes.
  • Be certain to enclose a completed Packing Slip with card count and contact info so you can be properly credited for your donation.
