Mailroom Monday Report: January 23, 2012

Happy Monday everyone! This will be the last Mailroom Monday post til Feb 20....I'm taking a rest break from the Monday and Thursday posts, especially since only 5 of you look at them each week anyway. LOL. (I kid.)

The Charity Wings Live from CHA online event* is 2/3 sold out; from what I gather, you pay a fee, they send you a project kit that you make throughout watching all their videos from CHA. You get a discount if you sign up with friends. It is a fundraiser, so the profits should be going to whoever they are fundraising for this first quarter - which now will not be OWH. If you missed the Facebook announcement, I'm asking OWHers to stop voting. The contest rules changed as of yesterday, and robovoting is obviously taking place - so we're just going to pull out of the contest, save our sanity, and go back to what our real focus should be: making cards.
I'm sorry and I appreciate your understanding; next time I promise to do my due diligence and research actual contest rules before getting us into a contest like this where feelings are hurt. You all are awesome supporters, and I appreciate your help when I ask you to jump in on something for our heroes!! -Sandy
*Charity Wings footage is not OWH footage, though they may discuss OWH -  you'll get our vlogs and photos on our blogs and on http://acolourfulworld.blogspot.com
