I just want to clarify that I'll still be doing all the collecting of the cards (in order to do the card totals). I will then connect with Punkapod for delivery to her hubby.

Whenever you need an address, let me know!

I certainly wouldn't have a problem with some of my cards being used for the British troops to send home. I think that would be a nice gesture and show our Canadian hospitality.
My Mom was in the British Air Force when she met and married my dad who was a Canadian soldier ,so she came to Canada as a war bride in 1946.
I'm glad we are able to send out cards again!

Thanks, Jackie! It's nice to connect with you again.

My aunt was a war bride from England. She's a wonderful lady, but obviously getting up there in years.

I should also mention...the earlier posts on this thread were connected with the Manitoba ladies running A Card for Home. That website is no longer active and I haven't been able to connect with them by e-mail either. We're on our own in Alberta!

Thanks for letting me know why the change to more generic cards. I think its a good idea in some aspects. Its just unfortunate that there isn't a way to have the cards available to them more readily.

Once my DH makes the contacts at the two bases I may have an idea on how to get cards to them on a more steady basis.

That would be nice. I have some cards that I've been hanging on to, to send in a bunch rather than just a couple at a time, so its nice to know they'll get the cards one way or another. Its a lot of work organizing this and I know we appreciate your efforts as I'm sure the people using them do as well.

My Grandma was a war bride from Scotland. She just recently passed away at 88yrs but atleast now she is back with her groom. They had been together almost 60 years when he passed 4 years ago.

How sweet to think of it that way. I'm sure they are SO happy now that they have been reunited.

Hi All,

I'm going to "close" this thread off (it's getting rather lengthy) and start a new one, with totals from the past few years, plus our total starting this year. Hope you'll follow over to the new one!

Wish me luck!
