Looking back at all the contributions for Mother's Day and Father's Day cards, we are so pleased at the response to our plea for cards - our initial Mother's Day shipment included what we had on hand for Father's Day, too, to save on shipping costs - we are very cconservative with all your cash donations we receive -
With that said, we want to say that more Father's Day cards will be shipped over - our final shipping date is the 22nd - and we will mail over what we receive!
We have not been blogging regularly these past few weeks - with a newborn granddaughter (Martie and Tom) that took us out of town for an extensive period of time and an injury to Martie's shoulder - now under doctor care and getting better - our time on the computer has been limited - we hope all will understand. And, as so many contributions have been received, not all will make it to the blog - there just isn't enough time or days to post every one! We are attempting to post each box received (name/city and state) and will post photos of those contributions as we can.
With that said, we would like to show some that have been received recently:
Mary M, Peru, IN sent us 121 of her original designs. Here is one of them that we thought was just beautiful!
April S, Chino Hills, CA sent us 260 cards - many Mother's Day cards. Her comment to us: "It's my honor to make cards for our brave troops!" - and we thank April, as we share her thoughts!
From Norman, OK, our volunteer, Ruth C has been busy, busy, busy - 2 boxes of 626 cards arrived and nearly 1/2 of them were Mother's Day cards -
From Cedar Rapid, IA, Jan C sent us yet another box of cards:
From Pennington, NJ, Linda W sent us a box of cards and fronts - and more -
AND - we that each and every one of these contributors for their support - our boxes would not be shipped over without the help of them and you, too!
