OPERATON: VALENTINE 2008


*Please note this post will stay up top until after January 30. New posts will follow below!

OPERATION: VALENTINE
Valentine’s Day Card Drive for Troops

Let's show our troops we love and support them!! Let’s help them chase away those after-
Christmas blues!! We are now collecting Valentine's cards to send to our troops stationed in Iraq
and Afghanistan. If you wish to participate, please send light-hearted, silly, cheerful cards to this address:

Mrs. Kat Orr
Operation Valentine
P.O. Box 1660
Loganville, GA 30052

Please make sure to leave the envelopes unsealed – every card is read before it is shipped, to
ensure appropriate content.

I am also collecting “Hershey’s Kisses” and “Hershey’s Hugs” candy, and any other silly
Valentine’s candy you’d like to send – lollipops, candy hearts, etc.

The cards can be handmade or store-bought... for that matter, they don't even have to be cards; a hand -written letter is just as wonderful! Let's all band together and overwhelm our heroes with support! This is a great project for Scout troops, churches, or other organizations to get involved with!

ALL CARDS MUST BE RECEIVED NO LATER THAN

JANUARY 30, 2008

Thank you so much for having a heart for our heroes!

**IMPORTANT NOTE: This is not a "dating service" of any type. Please do not send suggestive or otherwise inappropriate cards or pictures. 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!

**IMPORTANT NOTE 2: This card drive is an individual effort and not done in conjunction with or on behalf of any organizations or groups
