All of the cards have been divided up and put into large envelopes....all food and toy donations have been boxed up as well. We did run into one problem. I had MORE cards than we had addresses for soldiers and I had to wait a few extra days until I could get some more addresses from my source. We have a TON of boxes to send and I will have to scatter them in the mail so that the units receiving them aren't overloaded all at once. Grand total for cards donated............1021!!!!! We got TWICE as many as our goal! Give yourselves a nice pat on the back, my friends!

That is awesome Jenn!!!!!!!


Wow nice card Bill,, they say it's the little things that count in life, even if it just a supporting wish of safety and appreciation from across the seas.

I also received a postcard from this particular soldier. We have been surprised with a few letters from soldiers that received cards this Christmas. I am excited to do this again this coming Christmas.

I can't find either one of my cards I got from soldiers right now---but I too just tue or wed got one from a "chief warrent officer" from Adganistan.

---it was kinda scribbled though & so I dont remember the name on it---and then around Christmas I got a card from an Lt. Colonial. both were thanking me for the nice cards we sent.

that is/was a very nice thing you had us do, Jenn--good for you!!!
good for us--
