OPERATION: THANKS FOR FREEDOM 2007!

THIS POST WILL STAY "STICKIED" TO THE TOP OF THE BLOG UNTIL THE CARD DRIVE IS OVER - NEW POSTS WILL APPEAR BELOW!



OPERATION: THANKS FOR FREEDOM!
Fourth of July Card Drive for Troops



Let's show our troops we love and support them! Starting NOW, I will be collecting cards to send to troops stationed in Iraq and Afghanistan. If you wish to participate, please send light-hearted, silly, cheerful, and encouraging cards to this address:

Mrs. Kat Orr
Operation: Thanks for Freedom!
P.O. Box 1660
Loganville, GA 30052

You may also send a e-mail of support to the following email address: LoveFromHome@gmail.com. Any e-mail received to this e-mail account will be printed and mailed, together with the cards.
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 SATURDAY, JUNE 9, 2007
(Please do NOT seal the envelopes)

Thank you so much for supporting our troops!

If you have any questions about this campaign, please e-mail me at LoveFromHome@gmail.com. Also, you might wish join my Yahoo Group, http://groups.yahoo.com/group/LoveFromHome in order to receive updates about the progress of this and other card drives.

**IMPORTANT NOTE: This is not a "dating service" of any type. Please do not send suggestive or otherwise inappropriate cards or pictures. I will be reading and screening every Card received to ensure that the above guidelines are adhered to (please DO NOT seal the envelope)! Any card deemed inappropriate will not be sent! 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

How many can I send? Is there a limit?

Kat said...

Send as many as you wish... just please make sure the envelopes are un-sealed so the cards can be proofread. The more we get, the better! :)

I'm updating my Morning Report right now. This is hot stuff! I know how valuable something like this is. My daughter came back last Fall, her husband the previous Spring. I think you can expect a package from my house.

Kat said...

Thanks guys! :) Couldn't do it without all y'all's help!

Coach Mark said...

hey, kind of an FYI...you might want to check out and add Any Soldier to your list of troop support sites. And, in a shameless plug for them (...and me...) check out the Any Soldier.com video.

Thanks for all you're doing. We who have served know what it really means.
