While blog surfing I stumbled upon a blog hop for cardsforheroes.org. What a wonderful organization! Their mission is 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. As a card maker, this obviously grabbed my attention right away. So this afternoon, I sat down and sorted through my huge stash of handmade cards to find appropriate ones to send along to the troops. Before I knew it, I had 80 cards to share!!
I can't wait to get these in the mail once the post offices open back up on Tuesday! If you have any extra cards or want to create new ones for Cards for Heroes, I encourage you to package them up and submit them. Not only will the service men and women appreciate your gesture, but their loved ones at home will be so happy to receive a hand-written note from their hero! It's a win-win, perfect for this Memorial Day holiday!
