First, a little bit about Operation Write Home, and the amazing work they do to help our troops stay in touch with their loved ones.
Supporting our nation’s armed forces
by sending blank handmade greeting cards to write home on,
as well as cards of gratitude to encourage them.
This merry band of thousands of cardmakers is made up of Americans – and citizens of other nations too – who care about our military, and want to support them through creativity and encouragement. Crafters of all ages and levels of experience have participated since 2007…and are on the way to a landmark one MILLION cards!
Care packages filled with hundreds of handmade cards are sent to our contacts, restocking every 6-8 weeks, and are sent in time for the long journey back home to loved ones. Each box is packed with great care, alternating styles, colors, and cardmakers from all over the USA, creating “eye candy” for heroes who see only khaki around them. The topper on each box is a plastic bag filled with 20-30 letters from adults and children across the country, letters handed out especially to those in need of a positive word from the homefront.
Boxes are shipped through every week of the year, so join us anytime in sending your beautiful creations to help our heroes keep in touch with home! Please visit the OWH “Get Involved” page to see how you can help.
Happy Birthday Operation Write Home!
