Mailroom Monday: August 2, 2010

This week 10,428 cards were mailed out - at a cost of $388! For this week alone....that's more like Christmas shipping, and this is still summer; what's October going to be like? :)

Thanks to all of you who are keeping up with the half and half challenge, getting us a lot of cards we can use now as well as so many for the coming holidays. We're doing really well on getting packed up ahead with a lot of our boxes! Remember, the challenge cards are due Aug 14th in the shipper's hands...two weeks to go!

When you scroll down to the bottom of this post, check out the total number of cards mailed.....it's very very possible that this week our 500,000th card will be in the mail to our heroes. Wonder whose card that will be?
