It's time to start planning for my next event to get cards to the soldiers through OWH(Operation Write Home) I had planned on having another event at Archivers in May, but They have a full house so since I'll still be mailing my own cards I thought I'd ask you all again if you would like to play along and mail some with mine.
There will be no particular theme this time, anything goes, but here is some Examples of what you could do;
Happy Birthday, Thinking of You, Happy Anniversary, etc....
I'd also like to include kids and young adults this time to make what OWH call's anyHero letters, that is where the child makes a card or draws a picture with a thank you note to the soldiers.
If you haven't done this before the Rules are Few and Simple to Participate:
1. Keep cards the Standard A2 size 5 1/2 x 4 1/4
2. Absolutly NO glitter on the cards (it could get on their uniforms making them visible at night)
3. if you make dark cards, please include a white insert for them to write on (they usually only have pencils or light pens)
4. this is not a requirement but it is nice if you put your handmade signature or stamp on the back.
5. Have your card packages postmarked no later then May 8th of 2010
Rules #2, 3,and 5 only apply to kids/young adults as well, and they are required to address their note to Dear Hero. And it's nice if he/she put's their name on the back with their age too.
You can email me for my Snail mail address at firstname.lastname@example.org or email me if you would like to be notified about my future card drives.
Donations are always Apreciated, whether it's cash to pay for shipping and supplies(for the events) or craft supplies such as; stamps, cardstock, ink, embellishments, etc.. to use at future events.
The above is accepted at anytime just email me letting me know you are sending a package.
And now how about a Prize! Kids to young adults, this is for you! 8~)
make an anyHero Card and upload it to your blog, flickr, or any other photosharing site you might use. Giving me the link (on Mr Linky Below)to the card/s you sent me, the more you make the more chances you have to WIN! I will then choose a winner on May 16th and announce it the following day.
