Cards for a Cause

I love making cards and have compiled quite a stash. I send cards for birthdays, or just to say hello. I give cards to friends. And I still have a large stockpile!

For the past year or so I have been sending cards to Operation Write Home, a non-profit that sends blank cards to U.S. military personal; they, in turn, can use and send these cards home to loved ones. It is a very satisfying project!

For the upcoming July 4th Independence Day celebration, We Are Memory Makers and Scrapbooks Etc. are teaming with OWH to donate thousands of blank cards.

We R Memory Makers is having a great contest — lots of fun prizes. Find the rules and details at
Blank cards must be received by 5 p.m., July 6th.

OWH — which has sent out a million cards so far! — is looking for blank, handmade cards that servicemen and women can send home.
These can be birthday, love, miss you, thank you, thinking of you, etc.

There are certain rules to follow in making cards (for example, no glitter), so before making your cards check out the OWH website at You
can also send “Any Hero” cards, which are cards with notes inside of them from you to the troops. This is a great school or scout project!

Here’s my hero card:
