|Mother's & Father's Day Cards for the Troops|
Scrapbook Royalty along with The Fiskateer Charity Fiskamittee has taken up noble causes for which we help raise money and collect donations. There are so many worthy causes to support in different ways our current effort is to collect handmade Mother's & Father's Day cards to send to the military men and women overseas. We want them to receive them in time for them to send home to their loved ones.
***Nominate a Unit to Receive Cards***
You can contact us at email@example.com to nominate a unit overseas. We need an address to ship and US contact information, how many people are in their unit and we will fill as many requests as possible. Please note this will be first come first served.
***Greeting Cards for Troops***
This year we have decided to collect Mother's Day and Father's Day cards for our Cards for Troops Campaign!! We have been very successful for the past two years in collecting handmade Holiday greeting cards from around the country and donating them to units that make sure these cards reach actual military serving overseas. They were so appreciative to have these cards to write in and send messages home to family and friends during the holidays. So we would like to do the same thing with Mother's Day and Father's Day cards.
Below are some photos of the 3000 cards we recieved this past holiday season.
So once again and we need your help! We will get these cards distributed to the hard working men and women overseas defending our country. We are sending the cards directly to the troops ourselves so that gives us a bit more time to get them made and sent over. A simple handmade card, blank inside, will do just perfectly. We need to recieve the cards with envelopes by March 31st, so we have time to mail them to the units over seas and they will have time to mail them home.
Here are some tips for getting a few cards made for the soldiers:
Once you've created your cards, you can send your handmade cards directly to:
