Donate Holiday Cards to Our Service Men and Women!

Did you know 50% of our troops go with out a Christmas greeting? I'm on a mission, Michaels Craft Store's and EK Success have teamed up to get 170K of handmade or (not) Christmas Cards to send to our Troops.
I have placed a basket in the classroom at Michael's in Palm Coast, Fl. for anyone who would like to help us reach our goal. We are asking for a Christmas card/with envelope and if you would write a Christmas greeting or a word of thanks it would go a long way. I need these by the end of Oct. You can take a card making class at Michaels or donate one or more of your own designs. 
A great project for a girl/boy scout troop, book club, bunco group, women's group, Sunday school class and more. Drop off at Michael's Palm Coast, Fl. by Oct. 31. All faith are welcome!
