Bugaboo Stamps and I would like to send a challenge out to all our fellow card makers, to make a Christmas or a Birthday card for a soldier to send home.
Operation Write Home is celebrating their birthday (Sept 12th) for the month of September and the team at Bugaboo Stamps are helping to celebrate with them by supporting their mission.
Here is a little bit about OWH-
Operation Write Home mission: Supporting our nation's armed forces by sending blank handmade greeting cards to write home on, as well as cards of gratitude to encourage them.
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 OWH's basic guidelines here; 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.
Another way you can support our men and women who are serving our county is by considering to enter 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! Please see their site for detailed rules and regulations.
Link your OWH card to our challenge blog Catch the Bug for a chance to win Bugaboo Images.
