Mailroom Monday: September 5, 2011 - Happy Labor Day!

This week 10,610 cards were mailed out - at a cost of $426.30! The crazy holiday shipping is about to strike...so watch the weekly numbers start to take off. This weekend, our shippers each packed a large number of boxes, some to be mailed right away, some are staged for Christmas!

This early packing has been made possible by all of you who sent  your holiday cards in early - we appreciate your help! Keep them coming, the requests from heroes will start to increase later this month and in October. We'll need you to come through for us - and we know you can!

The challenges on our Stars and Stamps blog every day this month should help keep you inspired - one or more every day!
