Because of a dwindling number of contacts due to the downsizing of those serving in Afghanistan, we are asking our contributors to not send more than 250 Christmas cards. We must also request that no more than 50 cards of any one design be sent in.
As of today, we anticipate we will only have 9 contacts for the Thanksgiving and Christmas shipments, down from a high of 43. We will be able to send multiple boxes to a couple of them so we are predicting we would send out approx. 20 boxes of Christmas cards. We have 8 full boxes of Christmas at the office now.
As you gear up to help us out, please keep these requests in mind.
We are also experiencing a heavy volume of new contributors as many other groups are ceasing their card shipments. Please, we request that all refer to our FAQs (link is on the right side bar of the blog) - this document details how we like to receive cards and mail them on.
We want to thank everyone who contributes to our cause and to let all know that we are not closing down shop at this time, only attempting to minimize the cards received right now.
Please remember that no birthday, get well, and congratulations/celebrate cards are needed - we have plenty in reserve!
