Greetings to all and Happy Healthy Holidays. It is wild to think that we are in the midst of Chanukah and Christmas is just 11 days away. And I did not forget that there are a whole host of December holidays that others celebrate including Mother Nature! It is snowing here in New Hampshire and I am excited to get out and build a snowman as soon as I can.
Drum roll… so far, I have mailed out 91,000 cards and still have at least 15,000 more to go. We have mailed your amazing cards all over the Globe, including to those men and women who are stationed stateside her in the US. The cards keep coming in and I say bring them on!! IF you can get your cards into me say by the December 20th, I will still get them out. After that, I have two ideas… One is to go ahead and write holiday cards and send them to me and I will tuck them away safely for next year. Or… write Happy New Year Cards. After all 2021 is around the corner and the Troops would love some New Years Cards for sure. How does that sound?
If you have any questions, please always feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Gotta share a couple messages that came in the cards…
