Cards for our Troops

I got this off of one of the list I belong to and am hoping some of you will be able to do this and help a good cause. Remembering those fighting for our freedom and our country. They do so much for us it would be nice to do something like this in return so they can send cards to family and friends also.
If you interested contact Betty, email below.

Dear Fellow Stampers,
Now that we are looking toward the New Year and retiring stamp sets,I'd like to put out a request again for cards and card fronts. All of the cards go to our military in Iraq, Afghanistan or the wounded warriors hospital in Germany through a wonderful, all-volunteer organization, Support America's Armed Forces. You can learn more about this group that is supporting about 8000 troops on the website
We send commercial cards as well as handmade cards, but, of course,the handmade cards are the favorite. And, we send both those with notes inside to the troops and those that can be made available for them to send.
I will be hosting a work party at my home on February 9th to make new cards, to convert whatever card fronts we have by then to full cards and, especially for those who don't want to craft - to just come and write messages. This will be the first time that I have tried such an event and, being new in the community, it will be interesting to see what happens. I already have 400 cards ready to go and am setting a goal of 600 more to make 1000 for the next shipment.
There are now so many excellent groups collecting and sending cards but if you should be interested in this one, let me know and I will send you my address. If you have sent cards to me in the past, before last July, that address is no longer valid. I moved to a new community last summer to be nearer to my children.
If you live in the Seattle-Tacoma area and are interested in the work party, I'd love to have you participate!
