I have been crafting for OWH for about 2 years. The service members really enjoy receiving the cards sent to them by OWH. I really enjoy making the cards for them. It gives me joy and happiness knowing that it is appreciated as much as we appreciate what they (service members) do for us!

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

letters received in response to Any Hero mail I sent.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Create a pen-pal type system where if someone wants to become a pen-pal they would be connected to a service member who also would like to have a pen-pal.

I was deploy to Afghanistan in 2010 when I first heard of Operation Write Home. I went to the post office to help a fellow soldier with packages to mail back home when I saw the cards. I was stunned how beautiful the cards were, so I grabbed a few and sent them to my wife and daughters. My family was so amazed and they ask me if the base PX sold them, and I said nope. I told them of this wonderful organization, which has volunteers to make them and send them out to all who would ask. I enthusiastically requested a few boxes for my unit and since my job took me around to different camps, I made sure I took a few and the word was out. Some fellow service members ask me how they could get more cards. I told them to go to Operations Write Home website and see the beautiful magic evolve. Thank you for making my family smile with joy!!!!!
Operation Write Home Rocks!!!

I've been making cards for Operation Write Home for a couple of years. It is very rewarding to know my creative outlet has a place to go - many heroes overseas are receiving beautiful, original, hand-made cards to send notes to their loved ones back home. Let me tell you, it doesn't get any better than knowing that I can activity support these brave men and women who are defending our country.

It is a small contribution on my part - one done lovingly. But it is received in a big way.

I've been making handmade cards for over 10 years and you know, you just don't have THAT many friends and relatives to send them to, although I try! So I was looking for a way to support the troops that would involve my craft in some way and found Operation Write Home. This organization is wonderful and ALL volunteer. Hand made cards can be sent to any of 3 different shippers in the States (check out the Operation Write Home web site) where they are sorted and boxed and sent to units overseas for our brave servicemen and women to have wonderful blank cards to write home on. In this day and age of electronic mail, a hand written card or letter is so precious and will be kept as treasured keepsakes for years by many recipients. Snail mail has a way to touch our lives and hearts that e-mail does not.

I am proud to be a small part of this wonderful organization and thank my fellow card makers all across the world that contribute to this very worthwhile project. And especially I thank Sandy Allnock, the President of the organization, that thought this up and keeps it going tirelessly day in and day out. (Well, I know she gets tired, but she keeps going!!)

Thank you Operation Write home for giving me an outlet for my creativity and supporting our Armed Forces.

The Great!

I have gotten involved in local groups that get together to make cards that also send in to this organization.

Ask folks to send in donations to help defray the costs for postage. Every dollar helps!

I received cards from OWH while I was deployed. It was awesome to take 5 minutes out to write a card and sent it home. My family got involved with the organization while I was deployed, and I joined in when I returned home! This Organization is awesome in helping out Troops!

I have been sending hand made cards to OWH for a couple of years now. They are dear to my heart because I have family members and friends, and even the Pastor from my church (who is also a Chaplain) that have served. I feel that it's the least I can do for those who are serving our great country. It's how I show my gratitude. Operation Write Home makes that easy. I share the craft I love, OWH sends the cards to the heroes overseas, and they in turn can write home to their family. It's a win-win all the way around!

I have been involved with OWH since 2008. As a cardmaker, it gives me great pleasure giving something back to our military members who serve our country. My daughter is currently active duty in the USMC. She just returned in June from a 7 month deployment in Afghanistan. I can't tell you how much my daughter and her unit appreciated the home made cards that OWH sent to them so that they could keep in touch with their loved ones back home.

Being a recipient of these beautiful hand made cards was such a blessing! Hand written letters and cards are few and far between nowadays. These cards are something I will keep and cherish forever!

I am so proud to be President of an organization like OWH. We get to serve the bravest of the brave - the strongest of the strong. We may only be making cards for them, but it's one way we can help them by doing what we know how to do.

I've never been so glad to be part of any group of
people as I have of our cardmakers who come together to support those serving in harm's way. It's astonishing the lengths people go to in making really beautiful cards - spending small fortunes on beautiful papers and cardstock, embellishments, stamps, markers, ribbon....and they do this out of such kindness. They don't need a thank you. They just want to give back. And that really touches my heart.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Letters received back from recipients of the cards, and meeting with heroes in person.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Continue to grow cardmaker skills and quality as we've been doing - to completely bless our heroes with the BEST cards. Because they deserve the very best!
