Thankful Thursday: September 30, 2010

We are so very THANKFUL for such a fantastic month of Birthday FUN! We'll soon be posting some totals for you, hopefully this weekend - we can't wait to see what all this effort has generated! At the very least we hope you've been inspired! (And the birthday fun IS continuing - see the challenge hosted by MelJens that went live this morning, and eclectic Paperie is having fun on their Flickr group through the weekend - PRIZES!)

Did you host a party? Did you take photos? Send them our way! We'd love to make a slideshow out of them all! Email photos to birthday@operationwritehome.org with BASH PHOTOS in the subject line. Send them in by Oct 15th and we'll try to get that put together by the first of November. (No promises to do things too fast, we're busy packing and shipping right now!) This photo below is one of our heroes, just back from his tour of duty - making a Christmas card at a Birthday Bash at Fort Lewis! Welcome home, hero!!!!

Did your event get media coverage? Check out an article in the Everest Herald on an OWH Birthday Bash held in Wisconsin! Did you local paper or tv station cover your event? Send us a link to the birthday@operationwritehome.org address so we can see it and share!

And now, without further ado, our list for this week! We received 20,955 cards this week....and our shippers are dancing as fast as they can to get them all processed and ready to go. Please please please be patient with emails; do not email to ask if your cards were received, just check the list each Thursday. We try to shoot an email out to everyone who sent in cards, but with 30-40 packages a day, some can get missed, and we apologize for that. Thanks for understanding!
