Mailroom Monday: February 21, 2011

"I know my cards are nowhere near as nice as the ones you make but I wanted to tell you "Thank you" personally. Your cards have made my marriage so much stronger, give me the opportunity to send something nice to my wife. My soldiers enjoy it just as much as I do." -CPT K.M., Iraq

Isn't that the nicest sentiment on his card! :) 


This week 14,580 cards were mailed out - at a cost of $567.80! Many thanks to everyone who donates weekly to keep us going :)   


A couple of reminders:

  1. Post office is closed today.
  2. Spring Thaw cards are due next Monday - that means mail on Friday or sooner! Winners will be announced on Wednesday to give our shippers time to process all the last minute mail. (Sending early is really appreciated; we'll have landslides coming in that day!)
  3. Our enewsletter is going to be coming out on the first of March - Be sure to sign up right away! with a cool video entitled "Biker Chicks" informally! lol. Our Facebook fans got to pick the music, just by the title. Maybe next month the OWHtv viewers will help out with the video!
  4. OWHtv? Did I just say OWHtv? Yep! Every Thursday night - more info here!
