Cards for Troops
Some of the Cards for Troops received in 2017
I found your site today and it was heart-warming to read that you all craft for other people's good. It is a wonderful way to use our time and supplies this way.
It was lovely to find a place where I could share what I and a number of cardmakers around Australia do on a yearly basis for our Troops serving in deployed positions overseas.
We make all kinds of cards for our Troops, sending them off at the end of October each year to enable them to write cards home to family and friends. When they are deployed, our Troops cannot usually buy cards in English, or cards that celebrate our Australian holidays and special occasions. Christmas cards are very popular as are birthday, anniversary, sympathy, get well, Valentines Day, Easter, thank you cards, and just cards to say hello or I miss you.
If you would like to see what we have done in past years, my web page tells and shows much more, including an address for people who want to send handmade cards for the 2018 Cards for Troops drive.
I hope this is the kind of support and help that you are looking for in Crafting4Good.
I wish you all much happiness and crafty days as you help others.
