Mailroom Monday: November 14, 2011

This week 10,790 cards were mailed out - at a cost of $430.00! Not bad for a week "after" all the holiday shipping! We do continue to support our heroes with general cards, and we appreciate your help in getting the cards made and out all over the globe!

If you're on our email list, you saw the notice that we have a retiring shipper: Dixie! We're so very grateful for all she's done for our heroes, our cardmakers, and the whole organization - you can read her own farewell message and leave her a note. She won't be far from OWH - because we expect her to redouble her efforts at making cards...I hear she already printed out packing slips for herself! :) We've got some special assignments coming her way once she takes a well-deserved break :)

Caro Hopkins is the replacement shipper - (check out her blog here) - she's been undergoing "shipper boot camp" under Dixie's tutelage for months and is ready to roll! She's learned the ropes, practiced inputting reports, packing boxes, writing letters and customs forms, and has been performing triage....let's not put her through TOO much of her paces by sending her cards that are ready to rock and roll as she gets her OWH shipper feet under her! ;)

The Mailroom page is updated with Caro's address - it's always safest to get shipping addresses from there in case there's ever a change, or if there's an important note that you might want to read before shipping your boxes. Kris and Sandy are still on the job as much as ever - so keep those cards and letters coming!

If you missed this weekend's vlog....it's a tired one! lol.
