Operation Write Home

As a cardmaker who send cards to OWH I wanted to share an e-mail I received from Sandy. If you are a cardmaker living in Texas in or near Mineral Wells or Austin, you may be interested in the following. Thanks, Betty aka ZacksNana
Operation Write Home
Greetings!
I wanted to get the word out to you all about a couple Texas events coming up! Some events are helping us get a great start on our SECOND million cards to send to heroes!
NOTE: I've pulled this email list from all Texas OWHers; if you've moved, or if you are no longer participating with OWH, my apologies. Let me know if you would prefer to be on a do-not-email list; but if you'd like to be back on the official eNews list, you can sign up here.
We R Memory Keepers has challenged their retailers to have cardmaking parties this summer - and two are in Texas so far. I have no idea who's close and who's not, so I'm sending a shout-out across the state!
Here's where you come in: volunteer to help out if you're in the area! Attend the event, ask if you can help them make kits, cut paper, stamp and tuck, do triage...whatever's needed. We know our OWHers love to lend a hand...contact them for info:
2801 HWY 180E, Suite 13
Mineral Wells, TX 76067
Make & Give Class:
July 7th & 28th
940-327-0713
This one might be a Drop Zone (meaning you can drop your cards off there - no shipping cost to you!). The site doesn't have more info yet, but if you're in the Austin region, look them up:
6340 Hwy 290 W,
Austin, TX
One other thing - cardmaker Allison G wants to connect with more folks in the Fort Worth area...if you're nearby and interested, send her a note!
You can watch the Operation We R Grateful page to see if other stores near you join in!
Thanks...hope you can help with one of these great events!
