Mailroom Monday: April 26, 2010

7,611 cards were shipped out this week! That's 24 boxes, shipped at a cost of $300 this week. We have now surpassed 400,000 cards sent overseas...wow!

The photo at right is Sandy's first attempt to pack up the car to mail 8 of the boxes; the trunk was full of boxes and boxes of donated cardstock from Pollard Group, a printer in Tacoma WA! Stay tuned for some of this cardstock to make its way into challenge prizes on our blogs :) It's THOUSANDS of sheets of cardstock! Thank you Rob, Scott, and Christine and everyone at Pollard!

(Fortunately there was a little space in the back seat to fit in these 8 boxes for the trip to the post office!)

Yahoooo OWH and Sandy! Those are really amazing numbers. Guess I'd better get busy, you're going to be needing LOTS more cards! Thanks to the Pollard Group for their generous donation!
