Operation Write Home

I just found an amazing site called Operation Write Home.  To date, they have sent 441,232 cards to service members deployed in Iraq and Afghanistan.  Now I know what to do with all the cards I make just for the fun of it!  Like this one I made for the Mojo Monday card contest.

Here are the basic "rules" in a nutshell:  NO GLITTER (it's a safety hazard if it gets on uniforms), 4.25 x 5.5 size (no need to send envelopes), make sure the inside has a light colored writing surface, don't worry about buttons, bows and other bulky embellishments as service members can mail cards for free.  There is also a place on their website where you can check to see which mailing center needs what type of cards most and deadlines for shipping seasonal cards.

I hope you will visit their site and, even if you aren't a card maker, donate money to cover their shipping costs.
