Mailroom Monday: June 28, 2010

6195 cards were mailed out to our nation's heroes this week (shipping cost: $225.00)...what better thing to give them to celebrate the coming Independence Day than the gift of writing home on a beautiful card! Hopefully some of these boxes will travel fast and they'll be able to use them on the 4th!


We had a little bit of help packing up boxes this week....Ciara and her bff Toby!
