Oops!  Was trying to edit my post and it sent instead.  Additional info for making and sending the cards....

-  Ensure that all cards are signed.
- Use generic salutations such as “Dear Service Member.” Cards addressed to specific individuals can not be delivered through this program.
- Only cards are being accepted. Do not send or include letters.
- Do not include email or home addresses on the cards: the program is not meant to foster pen pal relationships.
- Do not include inserts of any kind, including photos: these items will be removed during the reviewing process.
- Please refrain from choosing cards with glitter or using loose glitter as it can aggravate health issues of ill and injured warriors.
- If you are mailing a large quantity of cards, please bundle them and place them in large mailing envelopes or flat rate postal shipping boxes. Each card does not need its own envelope, as envelopes will be removed from all cards before distribution.

- Deadline is December 6.

Happy Stampin'~

SU!: RE: Sending Cards to Military

Brenda Crawshaw
In reply to this post by Angel Elmer

Whatever you do make SURE there is NO GLITTER OF ANY KIND on ANY of the
cards, or the materials you use to make the cards.  **ONE SINGLE FLECK OF
GLITTER CAN MAKE A SOLDIER VISIBLE WITH NIGHT
GOGGLES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!**

 

This scares the ever living crap out of me the two times a year I do the
Soldier Card event at my house for the high school mentor program.  I think
I go through an entire box of Swiffer Dusters removing glitter from every
crack and crevice..

I have been a volunteer for the non-profit organization "From Our Hearts" which was started by a still-active SU! demo, Martie Shea of Jefferson City, MO, for over five years now.  I have a small group who meets once a month for a 12-hr. day, converting card fronts into usable cards for the troops which are then sent to Martie's 20+ current contacts. One of my volunteers is dubbed "The Glitter Queen", as she's worked for Hallmark cards for 30+ years and does a fabulous job of blinging up some of the more-needy fronts.  Martie has continually assured us that there is NO problem whatsoever with glittered cards for our troops.  So I say:  "bring on the glitter" -- male as well as female soldiers like a little bling too!!

RE: SU!: RE: Sending Cards to Military

Wow!  I am so surprised to hear this!  I actually had my first batch of
cards returned to me from a well-known cards-to-soldiers group with a very
kindly apologetic note telling me why they couldn't accept the cards.  While
I am glad to hear the restriction may not be as dire as it was explained to
me, I think out of sheer paranoia I am still going to clear out the Swiffer
aisle before my events - LOL!

Brenda, I had the same response as you.

If there's glitter I catch it in crystal by using crystal effects so it could never come off.

Not willing to take a chance in someone's life.

Holiday Cards for Heros states "no glitter" on their website.  Those cards go to our wounded soldiers and they say glitter can impact them negatively health-wise.

For several years I have been sending cards for troops to send back home - maybe there's a difference?  Anyway, the absolute rule is NO GLITTER AT ALL!  It can rub off on a uniform and make the troops visible at night.

The way I look at it… Why take the chance?  

I would NOT put glitter on any cards that goes to our Military Men & Women especially those overseas.  It seems too risky and WHY would you even want to potentially jeopardize someone’s life when they are in a WAR ZONE.  

There are some organizations that send handmade / store bought cards and that are kept in the United States to go to Military Men & Women that are injured.  These usually go to Military Hospitals.  

To me and my way of thinking I would rather not take the risk.  Operation Write Home, as others have mentioned, has a STRICT No GLITTER policy!

NO glitter please .... operationwritehome.com strongly asks that NO glitter
be used as that little sparkle could cause them their life ... it can
sparkle and
cause attention to them .... have you ever looked at the little piece of
glitter on
your face sparkle .... lets not risk their lives

RE: SU!: RE: Sending Cards to Military

In reply to this post by Selene Kempton

I had a friend stationed in Iraq and we were on skype and I told her about no cards with glitter and when she stopped laughing, she told me that they sold glitter in the PX. She told me that she’d retold my story all over the base and got a really good laugh out of everyone. She thought the glitter restriction was based on those handling the cards not wanting glitter on everything. I’ve always called glitter the “gift that keeps on giving” as you can never seem to clear it all up.  I haven’t read the who string, but that’s my comment on glitter and cards to the troops.

Brenda, I had the same response as you.

 

If there's glitter I catch it in crystal by using crystal effects so it could never come off.

Wow!  I am so surprised to hear this!  I actually had my first batch of cards returned to me from a well-known cards-to-soldiers group with a very kindly apologetic note telling me why they couldn’t accept the cards.  While I am glad to hear the restriction may not be as dire as it was explained to me, I think out of sheer paranoia I am still going to clear out the Swiffer aisle before my events – LOL!

I have been a volunteer for the non-profit organization "From Our Hearts" which was started by a still-active SU! demo, Martie Shea of Jefferson City, MO, for over five years now.  I have a small group who meets once a month for a 12-hr. day, converting card fronts into usable cards for the troops which are then sent to Martie's 20+ current contacts. One of my volunteers is dubbed "The Glitter Queen", as she's worked for Hallmark cards for 30+ years and does a fabulous job of blinging up some of the more-needy fronts.  Martie has continually assured us that there is NO problem whatsoever with glittered cards for our troops.  So I say:  "bring on the glitter" -- male as well as female soldiers like a little bling too!!

I am doing a class at the local library and I need ideas for sending cards to military.  I am also in need of  an address to send the cards to.  

 

Thank you
