On today, October 23, 2017, I welcome you to another day of crafting.
I hope your weekend was enjoyable and you had a lot of fun doing what you like to do.
Many of you who frequent this blog know that I make cards for many different people....family, friends, church members, soldiers, children in hospitals, hospital gift shops, etc.
Today, I'm making another card for my "Cards for Soldiers" box. This organization accept cards throughout the year for our overseas troops. At this time of the year, my contact person is constantly asking for cards and is encouraging us to tell anyone who can help out to do so. Here is the address if you have some cards to donate:
Cards for Soldiers
C/O Charly Mathews
388 E M 72 HGWY
Grayling, MI 49738
Another place to donate, especially for the soldiers is
Operation Quiet Comfort
C/O Diane Schneider
12 Wave Lane
Carolina Shores, NC 28467
At the moment your donation should be blank ( nothing stamped or written )on the inside; patriotic; do not send envelopes; if you make your own card front sentiment, it has to be done using the Century Gothic font in your word processing program.
If you know of any other places to donate cards to, please let me know in the comment section below.
Sharing with you before I share with the soldiers:
