Guess what?! Bugaboo Stamps is sponsoring a challenge for Operation Write Home's Birthday Bash! I think this is such a great cause and as soon as I heard about it I wanted to help as well, so I started making cards to donate. Here is one of the cards I made, it's simple but I think a lot of fun! In fact we are hosting a challenge, and our challenge is to create a card for holidays in general so it does not have to be a Christmas card it could be a Kwanzaa or Hanukkah card as well so I hope you will join us!Here is all sorts of information about this fabulous organization, Operation Write Home:
Operation Write Home is an organization that sends blank handmade greeting cards for all occasions to deployed service members to write home on. They’ve mailed approximately 500,000 cards so far—and are still going strong! Our challenge to you is to make cards to send to them for our nation’s heroes.
Please read the basic guidelines here; it’s important to; it’s important especially to remember that glitter is NOT allowed (it’s a safety hazard to our heroes), handmade cards only, and OWH needs A2 sized cards. “Operation Write Home” needs to be on the backs of your cards—it can be stamped, handwritten, or printed on labels. Please include a packing slip inside your box or envelope, and mail them to any of their shippers listed on the Mailroom page. In your package, you can also include notes written to a deployed service member.
Please consider entering a card for Operation Write Home into Jo-Ann’s Craft for a Cause Contest. You can win $1500, and OWH could win $50,000! How many boxes would that ship! Please see their site for detailed rules and regulations.
If you get the chance please join us and help donate and participate in our challenge! The troops need our support, and if we can make at least one person smile with our cards, it really is what our cards are all about. I hope you consider this, at least read the information about Operation Write Home!
