Ok...this is soo cool. I know I will have enough for me, if all the cards get to me that everyone has said they would send...I will have enough for the other wife...and guess what...there is another wife that will also send them out to her DH. So, I know there will be a place for them.

Once I have gotten enough for the one wife (the one who is local). I will post the address of the other wife (who is not local) with her permission and you will all then redirect your cards to her. Not sure on the dead line for her but I would say it needs to be soon since she will be sending overseas also. There are a few that said they would have them ready right after Thanksgiving...so, check back here for an update before sending...you may just send them to her instead of me...sound good

Ok...I have done a count and first let me give a shout out to these ladies:

Christine from MI
Shirley (and the Girl Scouts Troop 277) from MN
Sandy from VA
Sue from IA
Sarah from MD
No name but they are from Gregory, MI
Markey from MN
Katherine from OH
Carman (guatelicia) from VA
Joanne from PA
Susy from OR
Jen (not sure where)

And with all that...I now have over 600 cards. So, I will give the extra to the wife here locally to send to her husband and he will do the same as mine.

Now if you have some card that you had not got in the mail dont worry there is a home for them. A wife here on SCS contacted me last week and asked if I had any extra could I send them her way so he husband who is also deployed can do the same thing. So, as soon as I get permission to post her address...you can just send them to her. I know there are some people that have said they where going to send me a bunch. If you have no put them in the mail yet...great...I will try and post today with the new address...then you can get them to her. If you have...I will send them on to her...so no worries on that. (Hopefully (Julie) will get this before she puts those cards in the mail )

I really want to say THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart guys...you all rock

Heather, so glad that you got my cards. It is just one small thing that I could do for the special service men and women fighting to keep us safe.
Thank you for allowing us to help and thanks to you for doing all this work getting it together.

If you have made them (or will make them right after Thanksgiving) send all cards to

or go to anysoldier.com and they will take them.

Tawnya husband is stationed in Iraq so he will also not be home for the holidays. She is now taking over this post. Thank you guys for everything you did. My husband can believe I got all these cards from people all over the US and Canada...you guys rock.

Heather- Thanks for this. I've been wanting to do something for the troops for a long time, but just didn't have a connection.

UPDATE 11/27/07

Ok...drum roll please.

I counted the cards last night. Put the ones aside for my DH and then for the other wife. And guess what....I am sending Tawnya 400 cards.

Im guess that means we met that goal. As stated before...after we reached the goal I asked that if anyone had any extra cards that you wanted to send over to get on anysoldier.com and find a soldier and send them cards. I would encourage you to do that. You can even find soldier from your state or even in a particular branch.

I truly want to say thank you to everyone. My DH still can believe I actually got as many cards as I did. Thanks a bunch. And Tawnya…the cards are going to be coming in two flat rate priorities….so, tell me when you get them.

Love all you guys

Heather,
I really like your idea and will keep you in my prayers for this to bless all soliders who receive the cards. I was wondering if you might be interested in sending blank cards to soliders to send home for birthdays, special dates, thinking of; just a handmade card to send home. If you could let me know, thank you. Kathy

You can send card directly to soldiers and they can hand them out to there fellow soldiers to send home....that eliminates the middle (wo)man. I am trying to encourage everyone at this point to go to anysoldier.com and pick a soldier (or sailor or airman) and send to them directly. My DH is taken care of but there are so many that are forgotten. I can give you the name of a soldier that my DH has given me if you PM me. And that goes for anyone else. If you would like to adopt a soldier I have a name and address to about 15 guys in three different spots (for some reason they are not on that web site) but I would be glad to give you there address.

Default WE HAVE ENOUGH CARDS

*************************************************
READ BEFORE SENDING


If you have any remaining cards please go to anysoldier.com and find a soldier to send your cards to (and maybe a care package ) I am sending Tawnya 400 cards which is way more then she needs, I have given 50 cards to the other local military wife to send to her husband, and I have receive (and will send off this week) the 350 cards.

As lovely as the cards are....I really don't want anymore...I am all carded out (is that a word?) So, send them directly to a soldier...you may even get a response back from them.

I have the names and address of 15 guys in different parts of Afghanistan but you will need to pm me for those.

Thank you everyone for helping make this possible.
