Mailroom Monday: December 20, 2010

This week 8,210 cards were mailed out - at a cost of $300.00! And yes that was enough to push us over the 750,000 mark!! 
Shipper Kris with the 750,000th card!
It took us from April 2007 til August 9th 2010 to get the first 500,000....and only about four months for the next 250k! That is how big our holiday season has been! WOW!

And now we're trying to keep up with stocking all those extra contacts we picked up in the Christmas season...so keep those cards and letters coming, our waiting list is growing dramatically! :) Our heroes LOVE your cards! (Check out the Hero Blog if you haven't seen it lately - lots of new photos, including some Archway Cookie pics!)
