Support our Troops with Operation Write Home

Happy 4th of July from The Island!

We wanted to make you aware of an opportunity to support our nation's armed forces by sending blank handmade greeting cards to write home on, as well as cards of gratitude to encourage them.

Operation We R Grateful:

We R Memory Keepers, has partnered with "Operation Write Home" in a nationwide campaign to give back to our nation's servicemen and women!

They are collecting blank, homemade cards to send to deployed troops to write home on--Birthday cards, Thinking of You cards, Love, Thank You, Get Well and cards for all of the major holidays.

Help a hero stay in touch with home... You can participate in this awesome opportunity to use your creative passions to support our troops! Deadlines are coming up quickly though, so grab a few friends and set up a card-making marathon!

Scrapbook Island is an official "Drop Zone" for your handmade cards. We'll be collecting your creations through Sunday, July 24th! In addition, our crop tables are open any time we don't have a class or crop scheduled for you to come in and make cards for our troops and we'd be happy to provide card suggestions or tips to help you get going! Bring your friends, your family, your kids--what an exciting way to come together to show your support for our servicemen & women and their families!

There are a few card-making guidelines that Operation Write Home is encouraging us to follow:
- No Glitter, please. It is a safety hazard for our troops.
- The preferred size is A2 Sized - 4-1/4" x 5-1/2" (either vertical or horizontal)
- If cards are made with a dark color inside, please include a liner.
- Duplicate cards are accepted, but please limit a design to 10-20 copies.
- There should be no handwritten sentiments (inside or out).
- All cards should be handmade.

Please bring your cards to the store in a ziplock bag by July 24th and we will send them the rest of the way.
