Would you like the chance to win some *free* stamp products just for sending me a hand-stamped card or letter? Here's what you need to do...
As you may know, my brother Daniel (yes, we practically have the same name) is currently serving his third deployment in Afghanistan. He has been to Iraq twice and this is his first time in Afghanistan. He loves being a Marine and knows he's where he's supposed to be.
This deployment, however, has been a lot harder on him emotionally. Next month (at the end of August) is his birthday and I would love to help cheer him up.
Here's where I need your help. I would love to mail him a box full of cards and letters--birthday cards, patriotic cards, thinking of you cards, etc. I'm not talking about blank cards that my brother can fill out and mail back home. I'm talking about uplifting cards and letters written to my brother wishing him a happy birthday, thanking him for serving our country, etc.
Please mail your card or letter to:
Deadline: Saturday, August 9th so I can mail the package in time for his birthday
A chance to win: I will randomly select three cards or letters and the winners will receive some stamp products from me.
Edited to add answers to questions:
Can I use non-Stampin' Up! stamps. Absolutely! The whole purpose of the cards is to send some happiness and cheer to my brother. So please use whatever stamps you'd like.
Is it alright to send a letter instead of a card? Absolutely! I want my brother to feel appreciated and know that people back home are thinking of him. It won't matter to him if that comes in the form a letter or a card.
Will I be opening the cards or just sending the envelopes sealed to my brother? I thought about this one and I decided to open all of the cards and letters. I'm glad that I did this because some of you are tucking in little notes or cards for me too. Thank you! If you would like for your card to be in a nice envelope for my brother, some people are putting their card in a double envelope like you would for a wedding invitation. Those that don't have a double envelope, don't worry. I'll put your cards in nice envelope for him.
Why am I opening the cards? I don't feel comfortable sending items to a US military base without knowing what the contents are.
Please spread the word to your friends and have them join in too. I know this will really lift his spirits. Thank you! ~Dannie
