Special Mission: Welcome Home Hero cards

We've been asked to provide 201 "Welcome Home" cards for a unit returning in June from a year long deployment in Iraq. These are needed quickly, so we're aiming to collect them at our Washington location by May 15th. Please write your thank-you or welcome home note inside, just like in an AnyHero note.

Be sure to mark them clearly as "Welcome Home Mission" cards, so they don't end up in an AnyHero card pile :)

Leave a comment here with how many you're committing to do, so we know if we need to keep posting and recruiting assistance!

Sandy, can these be storebought notecards or do they need to be handmade for this project?

I'm just curious about somethinh. I just finished my cards but as I was finishing I thought: could these have had glitter since they aren't going overseas? Love me some glitter:)

Yes, glitter is fine on these, Cindy!
