SPECIAL MISSION! Due Dec 1!

Archway Cookies loves heroes like we do. And they want to partner with OWH to get some sweets out to our service members for the holidays....as well as generate LOTS of valentines for them to write home on!


HOW THIS MISSION WORKS
  1. Make your best valentines. We need 4,000 valentines for this mission, but we have lots of you to do it - so take your time, use quality supplies, and pour tons of love into them! Remember that this card will carry home tons of love from a hero so far from home, so it needs to be a beautiful, sturdy, and loving creation! Be sure to stamp/label the back with "Operation Write Home", use no glitter, and make them A2 sized cards. More guidelines are here.
  2. Send your valentines to one of our shippers by Dec 1st. (You may also send other card themes!) Be sure to include a packing slip, and write ARCHWAY on it!
  3. Archway Cookies matches us sweets for sweets  - they'll send cases and cases to our OWH contacts to enjoy for the Christmas holidays! 
We need to act fast to get all this done and shipped to our heroes in time for Christmas celebrations in Iraq and Afghanistan and other locations, so join in and help us achieve our special mission!!

Leave some love for Archway in comments on this post...let them know what you think of their generous gift to our heroes!!

I'm very excited about this challenge! I've got a group getting together on Nov 20, just in time to knock out a BUNCH of Valentine's Day Cards! With a couple of folks ready to triage and sort, stamp and tuck and then pack boxes, I was hoping for 600... BUT, I think we should try to hit 1,000! WOOHOO!!! I am stoked! Thank you ARCHWAY to sweeten this challenge!

What a wonderful combination for our heroes!!!! My hometown of Ashland, OH had an Archway bakery in it. We could smell the wonderful scent of Archway cookies baking when the wind blew the right way! Our heroes may not be able to smell the cookies coming, but I know they will savor every bite of them like I still do to this day!

A big ooooh aaaah to Archway for sending our heroes lots of tummy love!
