Help Operation Write Home Make Cards for our military personnel overseas!

You know how wonderful it is to open your mailbox and find a handmade card from a friend inside.

Now imagine you are one of our many military personnel serving overseas where there is no place to buy a card for a loved one. You can help them this weekend by making blank cards that Operation Write Home will send to these brave men and women and in turn they can mail a special card to their someone special.

The instructions for card making for Operation Write Home are few, but important and are found HERE.

I have known Sandy Allnock, President of Operation Write Home for many years. OWH is an absolutely great non-profit cause!

Since 2007, the organiztion has sent 1.7 million handmade cards overseas!

Be a part of the fun and the cause! Thank a veteran over this Memorial Weekend!

If you can’t make cards now, remember, cards are needed year-around.

Cards can be simple

like the one CarolJean my DT member made below, top

or the ones I made and added today….

or elaborate, but, for the safety of our troops, no glitter or crystals please!
