Do you have a stockpile of Christmas cards you don’t know what to do with? Would you like to use your cardmaking to Bless someone? Join my Cards for Troops ministry by donating your beautiful Christmas Cards.
I’m collecting Christmas Cards to use for the need in November and December. There are two main initiatives we address with Christmas Cards for Troops. The first is Navy Bootcamp where the need is 8000! Thankfully we are not the only group sending! The second is Deployed Military. My goal is 1000 Cards by November 15th. Will you help? The greatest need is for MASCULINE cards.
As a Navy Mom, I am able to belong to two private groups where addresses are shared. I am unable to share the addresses with you, but when I receive the addresses I will send your cards on your behalf. Simply send me your stack of cards – signed, sealed, in envelopes (and even stamped if you want) and when I get the addresses for Christmas Cards, your cards will go out!
The only rules are:
- No GLITTER
- No Politics
- Inside the card, write an encouraging message and well wishes. What would you say to someone to make them feel special for having served their country. Be positive, genuine, and uplifting. Many of these cards go to personnel under the age of 30 and the majority are men. Here is a document of sentiments if you’d like to print a message for inside you card, and then sign your name:
- Decorated envelopes are allowed for Cards for Troops.
- In the front lower left corner of your envelope, please indicate CM, CF or CE to let me know if the Christmas card is for Male, Female or Either. The C is important bc I also get Birthday Cards with M,F, E on them and Veterans Day Cards with VDM, VDF, and VDE on them.
- Within your larger envelope, please sort and bundle your stack of cards by Male, Female or Either.
Please send your cards to Tina Newberry 5521 Kinglethill Dr Lithia, FL 33547
