Mailroom Monday: December 12, 2011

We did it - we went over 5000 cards in the Archway Challenge!! WOOHOO! Congrats to our heroes who are the real winners - they get COOKIES! 

This week 6535 cards were mailed out - at a cost of $444.14! 1545 of these were AnyHero Christmas cards - extra doses of holiday cheer for our units. More are on the way out as we are able to get them read and sorted - many many thanks to those who sent them in early so we weren't up even later at night reading letters :)

And in case you missed it - don't forget to check out the weekend vlog - you might win some stamps if you get a comment in by tonight!
