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.

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

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

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!
