I want to share what our small group of ladies did this week. The six of us got together on Tuesday morning and made cards for our troops for a non-profit organization called From Our Hearts.
Here are some of the cards we made:
We had a wonderful time stamping, cutting and putting cards together We only made 20 some cards that morning but we kept on making cards on our own at home and at the end of the week Jennie and I had collected 80 cards.
We made Thanksgiving, Christmas, Hanukka, birthday, hello, thinking of you, just because and thank you cards. We separated the cards in groups by the type of card and filled out an inventory sheet so when From Our Hearts receives the box they know how many of each type of card as well as the total.
We also put in packs of pens to send along with the cards so when the soldiers want to send a card they will also have a pen to write their message.
Once the cards reach From Our Hearts they regroup the cards so each box they send has a good selection of different types of cards before sending the cards on to our troops that are overseas and far away from there families and friends. I encourage you to visit their website to read what all these ladies do for our troops. If your are interested in making and sending cards go to the right side bar of their website under FAQ to learn more and to answer any questions you might have.
These photos are just a small sample of the cards we sent. We are planning on doing this again the first part of December to send Valentine cards to the troops as well as everyday cards. So if you live in the Silverdale, WA area and would like to make some cards for the troops with us please leave a comment with your email address and I will give you more information. Or you can go to From Our Hearts website and send them directly to them. It doesn't matter if you have never made cards just come and we will have some thing for you to do. We would like to make 100 cards next time.
