Welcome to Teapot Tuesday
the Sisterhood of the Traveling Teaparty
and Challenge #433
Thank You and God Bless the Red, White, and Blue
Note: Anyone is welcome to play! You automatically become a Teapotter the first time you play in our challenge. Also, you do not have to write a story. You just have to be inspired by the teapot or by the story about this week's location! Have fun! If this is your first Teapot Tuesday Challenge, please mention that in your commentary so we can be sure to greet you properly, in pure Teapot Tuesday fashion! Your participation in Destination Station is 100% voluntary and not at all required. Just have fun!
The Rest of the Story:
1: Veteran's Day is nearly upon us again and as you know from past years, it is one of my personal missions. This year, I have a little something different up my sleeve than just sending a card a Veteran you know although you can certainly do that too.
2: In the "Need a Lift" forum is a post asking for thank you cards for group called Operation Quiet Comfort to send to wounded warriors and can always use more cards.
3: I'm planning on adding a little bit of a twist to one teaparty in the months where we have 5 Tuesdays so this is sort of a test. Even if you can't send lots of thanks, let me know what you think of sending cards to a group for them to use.
A: What I plan on doing is putting up a sign up list for those months and anyone can jump on board and be an honorary hostess and have a teaparty for her favorite cause. Whether it's birthday cards for a nursing home to give out, get well cards for a church to send to shut ins, or any other thing you wish for. There are 4 such months next yr I believe.
Thank you cards for these fine service men and women in patriotic colors.
This week our destination is N.C. If you would like a destination for your cards, how about sending them to Operation Quiet Comfort.
to find out why as well as get the address to mail your card, please visit post 539
in the Teapot Tuesday Destination Station thread. Please remember that just because you participate in a Teapot Tuesday challenge that is combined with a card drive request, it does not mean that you are REQUIRED to send your cards. It is totally 100% voluntary!
