Mailroom Monday report: January 9, 2012

This past week, the first week of the new year - OWH shipped 44 boxes with 12,360 cards at a cost of $500.00....thank you to everyone who makes this possible, both crafters and financial donors alike!
We're going to try something just a little different with the Mailroom Monday reports....the maps we've posted here before didn't give perspective as to where the cards are headed, and a lot of Americans really don't know where these countries are anyway. So how about plotting them on a world map? Not sure if this graphic is do-able every week, but it was an interesting experiment :)
