Cards for Troops

About two months ago, my friend and neighbour, Barbara, told me her husband, David, who is stationed in Afghanistan would be coming home to visit for a couple of weeks in early September. I wanted to do something nice to show how much I appreciate our service men and women. I also knew that I have many friends who would want to do the same. So, I sent out a request for handmade cards for our troops to send with David for when he return to Afghanistan.

Well, David was here and has gone back to his service September 18th. The photo below is of David & my son with shoe boxes loaded with greeting cards. My friend, Linda E., my son, and I delivered the cards to David's house the day before David was to leave. 940 cards total were donated for my little Cards for Troops program. Thank you to all my stamping friends for your generosity above and beyond my imagination! I'm truly grateful. And I know with all my heart that the troops appreciate you as well!

God bless our Troops! God bless America! Pray continually for our fighting men and women and their family!

Until next time, may mojo live happily in your heart, and may passion bloom in your soul. Be well!

What an awesome person you are, Manna, to rally people to make cards for such a worthy cause! Your neighbor must have been amazed at the large number of cards you were sending with him!

Have a great day!
