Exclamation Notice from W.H.E.A.T.

Hello everyone,

I received the email below from Lana @ W.H.E.A.T. and wanted to pass it along to you:


Zella,

Hello! It's with a heavy heart that I need to let you know that we've decided to close our doors. Although the need to support our troops overseas is great, we can't find consistent, reliable volunteers to assist in sending care packages to our soldiers year round.

We're very appreciative of all that your organization does and we know that the cards were greatly appreciated because soldiers told us so.

Can you please let the group know that we don't need any more cards? And, can you please let them know that we're forever grateful and blessed by your group's generosity?

Regards,

Lana

This news makes me so sad. I wish Lana and the others at W.H.E.A.T. all the best.

If anyone has a desire to create cards for service men/women to personally use, I recommend sending the cards to OPERATION GRATITUDE. It's a wonderful organization that I can't say enough about..

Sad to hear this. It is one of my favorite types of charities for cards.

Zella, I hope you are feeling well and string. Hugs.

If anyone is looking for a group that needs cards for military care packages, please look into Operation Quiet Comfort. I am the card project coordinator and am always in need of thank you, thinking of you or cheerful hello cards for our troops. Thanks!

No envelopes
No glitter.

Cards can be sent to :
D. Schneider
