OPERATION WRITE HOME
October 24, 2012

I have been a volunteer cardmaker for Operation Write Home since June 2010. I first read about it in a national magazine and immediately visited the website, where I was impressed with the enthusiastic, informative and welcoming spirit of OWH! Dedicated leader Sandy Allnock has guided and grown this nonprofit into a national team and community of cardmakers. I am so proud to do my own small part for this fantastic organization, which enables our troops to stay in personal touch with their loved ones through beautifully crafted cards. And I mean BEAUTIFUL. I had no idea the extent of the world of cardmaking and the beauty that is created. It has changed my life and given me a new purpose and creative outlet to support this most worthy cause, where every single lovingly crafted card makes a difference!

OPERATION WRITE HOME

I read about OWH in a magazine and immediately visited the OWH website. I was immediately impressed by the organization's website! It is a lively, informative and welcoming community, led by the dedicated and talented Sandy Allnock. I said to myself, "I could do this!" That was in June 2010 and I've been making cards for OWH ever since. I am always learning new creative techniques and amazed by the talented and hardworking volunteers across America! I am proud to be an OWH volunteer and happy that the work we do directly shows our soldiers and their loved ones that they are appreciated and honored.

The Great!
