This just in….

I just received this email and wanted to share :) 

Hi Sandy,

I have been making cards for Operation Write Home for over a year now, and today I actually met a man who had received a birthday card from his daughter who is currently in Afghanistan. He could not stop raving about what the card meant to him. His daughter told him how there was a box of beautiful cards to choose from.

It felt so good to hear in person what a difference we, as card-makers, are making in the lives of the families of our service men and women.

I want to thank you and your team for going doing so much. Making cards is a labor of love, but you are the ones that send out the love to so many.
