Operation Write Home Blog Hop
We are working on Valentine Day cards right now and have a deadline of January 7th. (cards always need to be sent approximately 6 weeks ahead of the holiday to assure they reach the Hero's in time for them to send them back to their loved one's. The deadline for Christmas cards has passed )
There is an incentive to send the Valentine cards earlier, as Archway has offered to donate sweets for all cards sent by December 1st. Go here: http://www.owhhomefrontblog.org/2010/11/special-mission-due-dec-1.html to read all the details. Archway Cookies matches us sweets for sweets - they'll send cases and cases to our OWH contacts to enjoy for the Christmas holidays!
Operation Write Home is one of three charities that are in the running to win $50,000 from Joann Fabric. That money would go a long way to help with the cost of postage to send the cards to our HERO's. They just sent the 500,000th card so imagine what that cost in postage!! They also need envelopes for the cards that arrive without ones. Check out the link: http://www.joann.com/CraftForaCause and vote DAILY (once every 24 hours)
Now for some fun.....anyone that places an order on my website from the time of this post-until Sunday night at midnight (est) will be placed in a drawing for a $25 Willow House gift certificate.
There are a lot of other bloggers taking part in this OWH blog hop. Check them out, starting with
