Default PLEASE HELP..CARDS NEEDED FOR WOUNDED TROOPS BACK FROM WAR!!

Hello,
I am a Military wife that is trying to put together a Cards for wounded troops just back from the WAR. I live and work at WALTER REED HOSPITAL where the troops are all sent to be fixed after all they have done for us I think we could all get together and get them cards.I would love for you all to help me I cant do it by myself.I know people have cards going to the war but I would like to have help doing this one for guys and gals hurt in the war and are hear in the DC area for all the treatment until they can go home or back to there units. I know we all have cards or fronts we can turn easy to cards that we dont use or are ret. and the demos cant use so they can do a great thing.PLEASE HELP ME.
Let me know what you think,
Monica
PS I am looking at Thank you cards,glad your home,just because,general cards ,Hello,What ever you could spare would be great one or one hundred... birthday because we would have no idea when there birthdays are these would need to be blank with a note for them to have a card to send to someone they love..You could right a little note and tell them what state you are from ECT.I think it would be great.
I wish you could all come see this is a sad place and this would make some troops so happy to know someone away from here cares and they are more then just a name on a chart.
Send to Monicas cards for troops
9225 SOLDIER RD.
FORT BELVOIR,VA 22060
ALSO I have had some questions about the cards Please if you want to right a note that would be GREAT if not just sigh your name and your state.Blank carde will be left at the nurses station for the guys and gals to use to send home if they would like.If you want to make a letter/note on your puter to put in the card that is great I will copy it off adn put it in all your cards and they could reuse the card if they would like that is killing 2 birds with one stone a thank you and a card. what ever you want to do is just great.
ALSO they do not need to be man or woman cards funny or silly will be great too.whatever for a girly card would be great too. it is not a really picky thing just a lobor of love from Americans.....
P.S. I got a box today and Birthday cards are great.She sent them blank so the TROOPS could have something to send home That was a great idea.I need all the help with theis I can get THANKS SO MUCH.
ALSO IT IS IMPORTANT THAT IF YOU SEND AN ENVELOPE YOU NOT SEAL IT!! DUE TO THE ANTHRAX NOTHING SEALED GETS IN OR OUT LIKE THAT>it is sad but that is the way it is in this day and age now.
ALSO IF YOU HAVE ANY OLD HOLIDAY CARDS THAT WOULD BE GREAT ALSO. IF YOU WANT TO HELP THIS IS A HEARTFELT JOINT Effort I am PROUD to be part of........These guys and gals are being left behind.It is so so sad there are around 1,400 EACH month WOUNDED it is the sad part that we dont see on tv.We only know if some poor soul is killed and most have no idea how many are hurt so bad each month.this could be your child,mom,dad,cousin,niece or nephew.I can bet you all have a kid from home that is there or going there.......GOD BLESS OUR TROOPS!!

Default More cards

I am working up a storm. You will have more All occasion and Christmas by the first week in December. I hope other mail gets to you between now and then. I am enclosing the message like you requested in all of the cards. What a great idea.

I edited this to sound like someone sane wrote it on November 16.

Default Cards for Troops

Monica,
I am going to set up a get together with a bunch of my customers to see if we can get 100+ done in a day ~ assembly line style. I will probably be doing this the Sundaythe 28th or Sunday the 4th of December. If I get them out right away will it be okay to do Christmas for them to send to family or should I work on another theme?

Thanks for doing this!!

Monica,

I see that your original post was a month ago; please let me know if you are still accepting cards and, if so, what type of cards do you recommend we send. I would like to get my stamp club involved in this very worthwhile project.

Thanks.

Hey Monica, where do you stand on all of the cards? I've been crazy busy with other things, but we got a few Christmas cards made yesterday that we were going to send for the "patients" to use... Do you still need them?

You should have 109 cards by no later than 12/04 according to the Post Office...............and they better be right! How many now Monica? I look to see what the count is about once a week.

I hope to have some different cards for you in January.

Go to it Monica!

Default troop cards

Hello again,
I want to let you all know that cards are still needed. This is an ongoing thing so keep them comming. This is a great way to stamp for a reason.LOL Most of us dont need a reason BUT we need something to do with our creations. These dont need to be fancy just love in them. ALSO SCOUT leaders,Teachers, Youth groups ect cards from the kids are a great thing. Just remember not to seal the envelopes due to security.
It is great to put a note inside to let them know you care and thanking them for there service to our great nation. also your town and state is great. whatever you want to do just keep them comming. ALSO LOVE style cards are needed soon for them to send home for the ones they love.
Thanks for your efforts,
Monica

I sent a box last week, I hope that you got them.
I also had some people from work fill some out to the troops (I supplied the cards for them to write in).
I sent some for the troops themselves, and some blank ones for them to send out to their families and friends.

Default walter reed UPDATE

WELL GIRLS I AM SHOCKED we have together hit the great number of 2374. WOW I want to just sit and cry it is so beautiful to see the looks on the hospital staff when I bring them in.I can tell you they are so greatful and a little overwhelmed. with the outpouring of love in the USA. I want you all to know it is a beautiful thing and you should all be proud....
I dont know how many of you know that I am the Mayor of my Village and whit this I have to do things I like and that I dont BUT the BIG ONE this week was... MR & MRS BUCH came to my base and packed boxes at the USO with us about 90 people and packed care boxes to send to troops in IRAQ. He and his wife were very gracious and yes even to the non supporters. Funny he is not as big as I would have thought.... Well I have a bunch of busy work in the morning so I must run I will chat more later.
KEEP UP THE GREAT WORK
HAPPY HOLIDAYS to YOu and YOURS
God Bless and keep our troops so
far from home and keep them all safe!!

WELL girls here it is again time for a tally count
WOW WOW WOW.... 3429
You are all so so great. I did get a bunch of cards that I put up for next year for Christmas. It is still a week+ process for the troops to get them after they get to the hospital. They still have to go through a screaning process BUT they dont have to go to the radiation machines. THAT is a really good thing. They will melt a lot of things.LOL All the cards comming in are so great. I did send some to Walter Reeds "DC SISTER" Bethesda for we got a ton of holiday cards adn I thought the Marines that are there could use a pick me up also. NOw I am taking them to BOTH hospitals so keep them comming adn the love will show them we all care.......
I AM SO VERY PROUD TO BE PART OF THIS WITH YOU ALL THANKS!!

ANy cards you can send are great. If you have holiday cards that you did not use you can send them and we will hold them for next holiday season. What ever you can send is a blessing.

Monica --

Do you still need cards? I know it's after Christmas, but we still have troops serving. I can get a few to you each month if you still need them.

Default Cards for Wounded Troops

Hi, Monica. I sent hundreds of cards to Iraq before Christmas, but the XO I was sending them to to share has GONE HOME! Now, I will send cards to you. I have a few valentines done and will make up some more. The ladies in my stamp club will be contributing, too. These cards will be ones left blank so the troops can use them to send to their valentines. We'll provide an envelope with each card, too, unsealed, of course.

I love to have a good place to send cards and Walter Reed and Bethesda are the best. Because of all the body armor, our troops are surviving horrendous wounds and anything to cheer them up is high on my list.

Take care and keep up the good work! Kathy

Default Got cardfronts?

Great job Monica!! Could you give us a ballpark figure on how many there are, how long they stay and any other info you can? I have more in the making to send to you this month.

If any other SCS have card fronts but not full cards and don't have the time or $ to make them into full cards w/ envelopes I'd be happy to do that and send them along to Monica for the troops. I seem to run out of ideas more often then cardstock! If you'd like to PM me and we can work out the details. Thanks!

Kim

Hello,
It is rough to know really form monthe to month how comes and goes.Some are there for a few days then off to a diff. hospital and some are there for months.IT is really not something that can be pin pointed. I do also take them to Bethesda.THis is where most Marines end up...I am all about lmaking htese guys have a little taste of home.Also I thin it is nice for the familys that come in to see someone cares about there troop.
Thanks,
MOnica
