Mailroom Monday: March 19, 2012

Happy Monday! It's always a great day around here when we get to celebrate all that we've achieved in the last week...and our busy  busy volunteer shippers mailed out 36 boxes full of beautiful cards this week! And that's a good thing after the email that was received....check out what shocked even Dramatic Gopher....

So...let's keep on sending out our most BEAUTIFUL cards. The news of a paper shortage in Afghanistan is the perfect excuse to chop up the lovely supplies we've been hoarding, isn't it?

By the way....have you been watching the before-and-after cards on Facebook each morning? You can also view the gallery of all the images on our site here.

And...with no further ado...the list of boxes that went out this week!
