Cards for Heroes is an organization that collects cards and sends them to our military personnel overseas. Some cards are sent to the service people themselves and some are sent blank, so that the service men and women can have something special to send back to their families! I think that this is a great cause!
My friend Mindy, on the SCS PIF thread, is one of the people who has volunteered to collect and send cards for the organization. Her goal is to collect at least 1200 Christmas cards!!! I want to help.
Your challenge is this:
SEND AS MANY CARDS, TO MY FRIEND MINDY YOUNG, AS YOU CAN. SEND THESE CARDS SO THEY ARRIVE IN MINDY'S HANDS ON OR BEFORE MAY16th, 2008. I WILL HAVE A RANDOM DRAW FOR THE BLOG CANDY ON MAY 17th.
These can be card fronts that you make into cards or brand new cards you make or some of your old cards you keep in your stash. I do ask, that you only send cards that you would be proud to receive! Mindy's address can be found HERE.
How to get an entry:
1.) 1 Blog candy entry for each 10 cards sent (10 of the cards should be Christmas/Hanukkah/Kwanzaa/Winter cards. If you only want one entry...send 10 Christmas cards, if you want more than one... send any multiple of 10 as long as 10 are Christmas/Hanukkah/Kwanzaa/Winter based.)
MAKE SURE THAT SOMEWHERE ON THE BOX/ENVELOPE OR IN THE BOX/ENVELOPE YOU HAVE MY NAME!!! NEWSTAMPINADDICT BLOG CANDY ENTRY!!!! THIS IS IMPORTANT. IF MINDY DOESN'T SEE THIS, SHE CAN'T TELL THAT THE DONATION IS ENTITLED TO AN ENTRY!!!
2.) 1 additional entry if you also post a link to my blog candy on your blog. Just leave me a comment with a link to your post. IMPORTANT - YOU MUST ALSO SEND AT LEAST 10 CARDS TO EARN AN ADDITIONAL ENTRY.
3.) To steal a page from my friend Pam, 1 additional entry for every person that participates by sending cards and leaves a comment telling me they learned of this from you!!! AGAIN, YOU MUST SEND IN AT LEAST 10 CARDS TO EARN AN ADDITIONAL ENTRY.
If you have any questions, please feel free to let me know.
OH, you want to know what you can win?
The first person, whose name is randomly drawn, will win the Classic Square Nestabilities (small) !
The second person, whose name is randomly drawn, will win 3 House Mouse stamps!
What are you waiting for? Start Stamping!!!!
