Mailroom Monday: September 13, 2010

This week 5,440 cards were mailed out - at a cost of $200.00! That's just the ones mailed; each shipper now has growing piles of boxes with thousands of cards ready for Thanksgiving and Christmas, thanks to all of you who have mailed them in nice and early! Your ongoing fundraising efforts will be helping to get these giant piles of mail out to our heroes - keep up the great work!

With the close of Halloween shipping coming, it's really important for you to let your shipper know if there are Halloween cards coming between now and Sept 20th - so we can plan what boxes to hold back to tuck yours in. Thanks for your help!

PS Check out the Hero Blog for some new photos that just came in!
