    Card Drive for Soldiers

    As most of you know my husband is deployed to Iraq, and will be there for the next 12 to 18 months. This is a hard time not only the guys overseas but also their families. So I would like for the First 2 weeks in August to a be a online CARD DRIVE FOR SOLDIER'S not actually a card for a soldier but a card that a soldier can send home to his/her family. So the inside of the card should be left blank for the soldiers to fill out. I have ask my husband if this would be an idea that they would like or want and he said yes that is was an awesome idea for the people overseas. So starting Friday July 31st to Sunday Aug 9th will be SAS first card drive. Your time will be greatly appreciated, and I know first hand the loved ones getting the card will appreciate it too. If anyone has any questions please send me a pm. Once you get the cards you want to send please pm and I will send you out my address once I get all the cards I will send them in hopefully a BIG box to my husband. I will post up challenges once the time comes closer, anyone else with a challenge idea please feel free to post. If this goes well hopefully we can do this other times of the year.

    Thank you Janice

    Put "eat chocolate" at the top of your list of things to do today. That way, at least you'll get one thing done.

    Just one question. Should they be relatively 'flat' w/o a lot of metal embellishment, to keep postage down? Or does that matter. Not sure I'll get to do this, but I'll try.

    OK...2 questions.
    Is there any particular theme? Or just 'hello' type cards?

    I would think that it would be a good idea for boy and girl themed birthday cards, miss you, love you, thank you, and let's not forget the holidays. They're coming up soon, and we've got to get them to the soldiers in time for them to send them out to their loved ones.

    I have learned that you don't want to include any glitter. It can stick to their uniforms & make them more visible in night vision goggles. There are some guidlines over at Cardsforheroes.org that might help in making your cards.
