Our brand new program, Care With Cards made it's debut at Scrapbook USA Expo Spring Show. Thanks so much for helping to make it an absolute success!! We were able to donate over 3200 cards to Operation Write Home!! It has been incredible to work with Leslie (from Operation Write Home). Here is part of a letter I received from her over the weekend:
Thank you again for inviting Operation Write Home to participate in the Expo. Everyone on your team was wonderful and we were treated with such kindness.
I know you all are exhausted but wanted you to know that everyone I spoke to had nothing but positive things to say about their experiences. Your attendees were so very supportive of Operation Write Home.I had several military wives, sisters, cousins etc., comment on how grateful they were that you would be supportive of their loved ones serving overseas and at home.
Our grand total of cards came to 3,277. We figure that the average cost of a card is around $2.00 per card so that equals out to an over $6,000.00 donation from your attendees...which is an awesome amount by any standards, but especially considering it was achieved in a 24 hour period.
You were stellar partners...
What a great opportunity it has been AND will continue to be. Care With Cards will be moving forward! We plan to keep working together with each of you to spread more love, happiness and smiles through our crafting. Keep an eye out as we have more plans for our September show coming up September 28-29!
