Thankful Thursday Nov 26: 7,904 cards received


We've shared this before....but Thanksgiving day seems a good day to post it once again.






We're up to 2,879 cardmakers now! Can we make it to 3,000 before the end of the year?


We are SO grateful for all our cardmakers and financial donors — and of course our heroes! This project is such a wonderful joining of efforts among so many, and it's hard to say thank you in the limited words we have in the English language!
