 Shipper needs this week:

Sandy: I'm ready to start processing Valentines...yes, Valentines! I have 42 heroes on my regular rotation, and lots of them have loved ones at home! More AnyHero letters are truly welcome, I'm sending so many boxes lately (16 a week x 30 letters = a lot!) I'm also collecting a special batch of Get Well cards for a combat support hospital so the patients all have cards for Christmas. (Thanks to all of you we sent lots for Thanksgiving - Bless you all!)

Fabre: I could really use some great wintery thank you notes for our heroes to use to write home for all those wonderful holiday gifts.  Also, could still use general wintery cards - particularly ones that could be used as a holiday card, or a general note if they don't arrive on time.  Finally, it's not too early to start thinking about Valentine's Day!  Thanks so much!!! 

Kris: If you are done with your OWH Christmas cards, how about starting on Valentine's Day.  Of course, there are the general themes that I need as well.......anniversary, birthday, all occasion, etc.  I'm especially low on thinking of you and thank you cards!  Thanks!

Sandy,

Can you take glittery cards for that combat support hospital?

That is great you have so many cards to pass on.

I just wanted to give you and enabler alert. Over at Sew Many Cards today they are offering a free digi image of an eagle with a flag that says Thank You. Perfect for an any soldier card. Here is the link. http://www.digital.sewmanycards.com/
