Operation: Love From Home - NEED 2,533 MORE CARDS!

Hello all - just sending out a reminder about my on-going Christmas card drive for troops in harm's way this holiday season! We've gotten off to a great start: the first two weeks of this campaign brought in 467 cards! Woohoo! However, we've got a ways to go yet -- the goal is 3,000 cards by November 30, which means we're still short 2,533! C'mon, y'all - I know we can do this! Last year 2,500 were shipped - I know we can top that! :)

Below is the info about Operation: Love From Home. Please do all you can to help get the word out. THANK YOU!

During this holiday season, let's show our troops we love and support them!!!! From September 30 to November 30, I will be collecting holiday cards for troops stationed in high-combat areas in Iraq and Afghanistan. Being away from home and living in harsh conditions during the holiday season is especially difficult ~ they need to know we have not forgotten them!!! Mail from home helps to keep our troops' morale strong, making a very real difference in their lives.
Send your signed, unsealed holiday cards to:

Mrs. Kathy Orr
P.O. Box 1660
Loganville, Georgia, 30052

The cards can be handmade or store-bought... for that matter, they don't even have to be cards; a hand-written or typed letter is just as wonderful! This is a great opportunity to get your Scout troop, school, church and other civic organizations involved in doing something to show support for our troops.

If you wish to send an email greeting (which will be printed off and mailed along with the holiday cards), please send an email to:

**IMPORTANT GUIDELINES: This is not a "dating service" of any type. Please do not send suggestive or otherwise inappropriate cards or materials. Please also refrain from making political statements of any nature. I will be reading and screening every card received to ensure that the above guidelines are adhered to. Remember: This is strictly to let the troops know that we love them, we are proud of them and that we HAVE NOT FORGOTTEN them! If you have any questions, please contact me at
