Hallmark doesn't have stores in Iraq or Afghanistan

I am a member of Operation Mom, a support group for families & friends of active duty only son (only child actually) is in the US ARMY. On March 24th (if you can't make this date then send for next mailing which will be end of June) we will be sending packages overseas to troops & would like to put cards in the packages. I am requesting Easter cards & Thank you cards from you TO the troops....with a personal note inside. Due to security issues the envelopes must be unsealed & if you would like a response (no guarantee on this as they are a bit busy over there but I did get 2 responses at Christmas) you can put your return address on the envelope or include your email address inside. I am also sending cards (blank inside) that the troops can use to send home to friends & family (ie:birthday cards, miss you, thinking of you, thank you cards & just because cards) ....don't you think the moms/dads/aunts/uncles, etc would love to send cards home to the little ones?......these will need envelopes but they do get free postage. We can also always use Sympathy cards. This would be a great way to use the swap cards you accumulate. If you are interested in participating please email me at & I will answer any questions you may have & give you address where to send the cards. I am hoping to do this year round as we send packages multiple times of the year.

Thanks goes out to Sarah who has posted my blog on her's asking for donations to Cards for the Troops. Check out her blog....some great ideas to see.

Hi, Debbi,

I e-mailed you back after you ahd left a comment on my blog to get your address, but I'm assuming that the e-mail must be stalled somewhere in cyberspace. My ISP is having some major delivery issue for both incoming and outgoing mail. . . (except for spam--I get all of that!) Anyway, If you want to e-mail me an address to send some cards to, I'll be glad to send some.
