Operation Write Home

Operation Write Home is an organization looking for donations of hand made cards which they collect, and in turn send to our troops. The troops can pick cards to send home to their loved ones when they can't be there themselves. They welcome any cards, regardless of skill. There is also a place where you can click and print out pictures that you can have your children color and send in! There are a few things to keep in mind when creating for our troops. A very important one is NO GLITTER!!!! It can stick to their uniforms and be seen through Night Vision goggles! There are a bunch of ladies very dedicated to collecting cards and separating them according to holiday/occasion. They work VERY HARD at their "jobs" (it's all volunteer!).
If you'd like to donate, you can click on the picture above, or follow this link:

Once there you can get all the rules about cards! You can also find them on Facebook!

Oh and show your support to Operation Write Home! They are currently in the top 3 running for a $50,000 donation in the Craft for a Cause Contest!!! You can vote once in a 24 hour period.
