Make Mothers Day Cards For Aussie Troops Overseas


Want To Make Cards For Aussie Troops Overseas?
I've been very impressed with the work of Operation Write Home for U.S. trooops serving overseas. As an Aussie, I've been wondering if there was something similar for Australian troops overseas.

A Meaningful Gesture
Whether you agree with the war or not, this seems like a great way to help fellow Australians... something small but meaningful. I can just imagine someone at home receiving one of these special hand made cards from their loved one overseas.

Who To Contact
Tracey Hanshaw, an Australian Stampin Up Demonstrator, has teamed up with Karen Cummings to co-ordinate things. Last year was a big success with cards reaching troops in Afghanistan, Somalia and Egypt, as well as the Navy.

Karen has received grateful letters from the troops who find it hard to access quality cards. They also appreciate the gesture. The call is out for anyone who wants to make Mother's Day cards or Christmas cards this year. Mother's Day cards need to be sent by April 1st.

For more information visit Tracey or Karen.

  4. Thanks for the support Yvonne. I know we don't need an excuse to stamp, but it's especially nice to be able to donate things we made with love to those in need of some TLC.
