Thankful Thursday: October 28, 2010

This week our shippers received 26,908 cards!! WOW! It's been amazing, and we're so grateful to you all! If you want to know how busy your shipper has's what was received in each location:
  • 6,476 Sandy, WA
  • 9,636 Dixie, NC
  • 10,796 Kris, KS
Crazy numbers of cards! (And yes, Sandy's still trying to fill the requests for her contacts....this is better than the past couple weeks, so THANK YOU!!)

We have a REALLY IMPORTANT request to make, again: Please please pretty please fill out packing slips for your cards, and make them VERY find-able:
  •  We're getting way too many with no slips at all, and with these quantities, we have NO time to count your box for you, or to dig up your email address. 
  • Often we pull out the packing slips as we open them, so they end up separated from the box - no hope to go back and make a guess at what you sent.
  • If sending a donation, attach it to the slip with a paperclip, or put both in a baggie. It gets crazy trying to reconnect your gift with your name when boxes are everywhere!
  • Even if you're sending in just Hero Mail, it really helps our shippers in crediting you for your donation.
And now...on to our list of donors from this week!!

I feel so humbled to be in the company of so many talented card makers across the country. The sheer magnitude of what everyone here does is awesome and the thought of how many lives are touched by these small quiet gestures we make just makes me shiver. Thank you everyone for sharing your time, your talent and your treasure. <3
