Holiday Card Drive for Deployed military members

Hey good people,

I know I've absent for a little while, but I am back with a worthwhile request.

The McConnell Air Force Base Library is hosting it's annual "Holiday Card for the Troops" drive from 14 Oct-14 Nov 2012. Last year, they raised 8,750 cards and the goal for this year is 10,000. The cards are mailed to Airmen and Soldiers in various deployment locations. Each year they invite several community organizations to participate; therefore, I am inviting you.

Requirements for cards:

- 5 cards, due by 12 Nov, so that I can turn them in by 14 Nov

- Only homemade cards accepted and must not be any larger than 5 x 7 inches

- Include the following information with each card:

§  Organization name (your information..i.e. Scraps of Color)

§  Your name

§  Mailing address and/or email address (many of the soldier’s like to write or email the person they get a card from)

I suggest using an Avery label for the info and adhere it to the back of each card.

***THIS IS NOT A SWAP...If interested please email me and I will send you my address.

I appreciate your support! 
Much love, Kinkybella


  1. I am in. I think I can complete them at a crop. Can they all be the same?

  2. Thanks Mary J. They can be the same.
