What goes in an OWH box?
- 12 boxes
- 3,996 cards (333 in each box)
- including 204 AnyHero cards (17 in each box) *this wipes out Sandy's stash!
- a handwritten letter to the contact in each box
- a flyer, and 3 business cards to share in each
- customs forms for each and every one
- $150.00 for shipping!!
What waiting list, you ask? As we receive requests, we add them to a list on a private blog for our shippers. Each time a shipper has capacity to add another to their regular rotation, they snag the oldest name on the list. The 27 heroes on the list now have only been there a few weeks or less - the one waiting longest signed up on August 8. Yes. that means 27 requests since August 8!
Please don't let this 'panic' anyone - keep on making beautiful cards! We'll get through the list. Take your time. Don't try to slap cards together just to get a lot made....we can't have them fall apart, or not meet up with the standard of beauty that our heroes are coming to expect! (Which is why they keep passing word to everyone else about our cards!) We want these cards to be so special that, if a card happens to be the only communication a family ends up with from their hero, that it is a card that lasts and becomes a treasure for them, not just a quickie without TLC poured into it!
Do you know any cardmakers who would like to join us? Send them an email, facebook them, or dial them up the old fashioned way and invite them to come over to make cards with you!
