Splitcoast Cards for a Cause
A few months ago, Taylor (stagccva) came to us with a question. Would we be okay with a new Challenge? She had an idea to have members make a card, send it to a special Post Office box, and then we'd gather all the cards to send to an organization (different each month) in need. We said, "Let's do it!"
The Cards for a Cause challenge has been hugely successful, and we look forward to more of the same. In September, Splitcoast members sent 420 cards and enough donations to sponsor two overseas packages for the Cards for Heroes program. We're not finished counting all of the cards sent for October's cause, Chemo Angels, but it's safe to say that we'll have close to 2,000 by the time we pack those boxes up. Let's see if we can carry that momentum into November's cause.
To express our gratitude and support to wounded soldiers and those who care for them, November's Splitcoaststampers Cards for a Cause will go to Operation: Quiet Comfort, a nonprofit organization. OQC is positioned at U. S. Combat Support Hospitals, Troop Medical Clinics, and with medic teams on the front lines, and provides meaningful support to our wounded warriors and the amazing medical professionals who care for them. You can read more about their efforts on their site.
