Inspiring Video

Maybe this will help inspire you to help me reach my goal of 500 letters for the troops.  The end of the video asks life's most persistent and urgent question.  Leave me a comment with your answer to this question.

Thank you.

Oh answer to the question:  my work with OWH.

Generosity of Good People

During this past Christmas season I found a special surprise in my mailbox which touched my heart in a special way and bought tears to my eyes.  It was a check from some very generous people for me to buy supplies for Operation Write Home.  Thanks to this check and some sales at Michaels I was able to get a nice stock of supplies to make cards for this year. 

The items I got were the following:

2 packs of colored cardstock (50 sheets in each pack)

4 packs of 6X6 cardstock background paper (10 in each pack)

3 packs of A2 blank cards and envelopes (25 in each pack)

Personalized address stamp for the card backs so I no longer need to make labels or write them out

I just wanted to post this as I thank you to the folks (you know who you are) who have provided me with the opportunity to be able to continue my endeavors with Operation Write Home - not that I plan on stopping anyway, but every generous gift helps.  I don't think you can understand how "power"ful this gift was and how it touched me deep down. 

Thank you.
