Thankful Thursday: May 3, 2012

Here's a special treat for you on this Thankful Thursday..."My first deployment; longest ever away from my little man (18 months old).  This is him opening up a card made by awesome people at Operation Write Home.  He loved it!" -TSGT Y.P.
How's that for motivation! 

I've had several questions regarding my note on the Mailroom Monday post - I had noticed it was the first month in quite a while when we didn't receive enough donations to cover that month's shipping costs. (We were only behind a couple hundred, so we didn't miss it by much!) The only part that concerns me is that the majority of the year when we fundraise a little extra, that's the nest egg preparing for the Christmas season to as long as we don't have a lot of months like April, we'll still be fine. We are so so so grateful to all who are always so generous to keep our work going!

Huge thanks to everyone who sent in cards this last week as we finished up the Father's Day cards; you'll be causing all sorts of smiles like this little boy at mailboxes across America in the next month!
