Mailroom Monday: May 3, 2010

8,220 cards were shipped out this week! That's 25 boxes, shipped at a cost of $312.50 this week.

A quick note...we can still use more Father's Day cards! And LOTS more AnyHero cards. The boxes pictured in the photo above used up almost every AnyHero card in Washington...think about it, 20 letters in each of 10 boxes = 200 letters a week! Our NC and KS shippers are in the same boat!
 
Remember that the end of the school year is a great time for your kids' teachers to have a fill-in activity writing letters to our heroes!

Hey Sandy! My school teacher sister did a card day with her 9th graders and I have over 100 Hero letters and cute general theme cards to send you. ONLY they are the easel stand type and I don't know how to "tuck" them in envelopes! Help.
