What’s the Back Story?
In May 2019 my son joined the U.S. Navy and I joined a few penpal and card writing groups as a way to ‘mother’ from my now empty nest. I’ve enjoyed sending 50-80 birthday cards each month since July 2019. I truly feel called to do this. Every Christmas the groups I belong to focus on sending cards for deployed military personnel of all branches and recruits going through Navy Boot Camp over the holidays. In 2019 with the help of some friends and a local Ladies Club, we were able to make about 100 cards. this year we are aiming for a total of over 300! We need about 250 more. Won’t you join us?
