Cards for Troops *Update*!


Two weeks ago, when we last updated you about our Cards for Troops Campaign, we had collected over 1600 handmade cards for the troops! Since then, over 400 more cards have arrived, bringing our total to over 2000!!! WOW!!

That means we've collected 500 more cards than last year! That's 30% more!! Thank you so much for your support in this nationwide effort!

Elena Etcheverry traveled to Camp Pendelton in Southern California earlier this month to present the cards to Gunnery Sergeant Remi Rodriguez of the United States Marine Corps:


In addition to the cards we gave to Gunnery Sergeant Remi Rodriguez of the United States Marine Corps, we also gave cards to a local scrapbooker, Marie Cartmill, who is distributing them to her husband's Army company.

We received cards from these donors in the last two weeks:

  • Susan Hamilton, Los Gatos, CA
  • Terry Oulboub, Santa Clara, CA
  • Maryam Davodi Far, San Diego, CA
  • Diana Saldivar, Burbank, IL
  • Christy and Maddy Gallardo, Anaheim, CA
Thank you so much for making our Cards for Troops Campaign 2008 a success!
