Operation Gratitude: 48 Cards!!



We had a wonderful day today with our Operation Gratitude project. Patti, a demonstrator friend of mine made me aware of this organization. If you've never heard of them, you can check out their website here. We made 24 cards for the soldiers and 24 cards for the soldiers to send their families. The children participated just as much as the adults and did a wonderful job. Kid's can stamp!


Our trusty group of card makers!
Can you tell they are related? Mother/daughter. Samantha learned what SNAIL is all about. But everybody kept calling it TURTLE?
My youngest, Michele, very knowledgeable in the use of Glue Dots!
Grandma and Adam. This little guy looked at the sample card, decided to change some of the ink colors, and created a beautiful card!

Mother/son. Each card has a hand written note in it. Cameron loves the military so much he would have written a page to each soldier!
Awesome job!

God Bless,

What a great project. Being a retired vet I really appreciate you taking the time to make cards for our deployed troops. I know first hand how much the cards, letters and care packages are appreciated. Some of those guys and gals never get any mail so to know someone back home cares about them and what they are doing for our great country really means a great deal.

Thanks so much for supporting the troops.
