Bring your friends and put your creativity to work for a great cause! Please join us to make massive qualities of holiday cards for the troops to send home to their families for From Our Hearts! From Our Hearts (check out this site to see what this organization is all about ).
The Ladies Auxiliary is hosting us once again:
Saturday, October 13, 2012
9 a.m. to 4 p.m. (come and go as you please)
VFW Post 8259
8999 Olin Road, Stittville, NY
If you are a stamper/scrapbooker/crafter please bring your own adhesives and tools (labeled with your name). It would be wonderful if you would like to bring a holiday card (or any other occasion) shoebox prepared in kits for mass production - NO glitter, NO feathers, NO bulky embellishments please!
There will be plenty of work to do so non-stampers are welcome, too! We need help with stamping, assembling, collating all cards with envelopes and information slips, and putting each card into clear jackets/baggies. We will teach those who have never stamped before!
A pot of chili, beverages, and paper products will be provided. Please add to the feast with a snack/dish to pass.
From Our Hearts needs MASSIVE quantities of cards for this holiday shipment!!! They serve at least 40 chaplains/contacts in Afghanistan X 300 cards per box shipped = a MINIMUM of 12,000 cards needed!! FOH would probably like to send 2 or 3+ boxes of 300 holiday cards to each contact for the holiday shipments because each troop has numerous family members to send cards to for Christmas, Hanukkah, etc. (that's 36,000 cards!) Last Fall we sent FOH over 600 holiday cards!
Please forward this email on to all your stamping friends and those who would like to help us assemble cards.
R.S.V.P. - Please do let me know if you are coming and what dish to pass/snack you might be bringing! Thanks for helping us!
Arlene, The Snorkeler
Stamp with us: Ilion Sept. 27, Williamsville Oct 18, Rochester Oct 25, Syracuse Nov 8!
