An Inspiring Call to Arms

Hi All,
With Memorial Day just passed here in the U.S. I have been contemplating the service of our brave men and women in the Armed Forces.  I live in Colorado Springs CO. Home of the U.S. Air Force Academy, Fort Carson Army Base, Peterson Field Air Force Base, Shriver Air Force Base, NORAD, and another I can't include because it is top secret. So needless to say we have a lot of service men here in our community. This morning I opened a you tube video by fellow scrapper Enastasia, and was reminded about Operation Write Home. This is a program in which we as crafters send cards for all occasions to our troops so that they can send them home to their families. 

Please join me in this wonderful endeavor. I know several soldiers personally who have used this service and they love it. There is a drive to get out the 2nd million cards by the 30th of June. Click on the link and start making a difference with your talent.
Enastasia also told us about a drive by the Holocaust Museum of Houston TX. The Museum is collecting 1,500,000 butterflies to represent the innocent children who were lost in the Holocaust.
What an incredible project! Make sure that you clink on this link and find out the rules (such as no glitter), gather some kids together and have them make some butterflies and tell them the story of the Holocaust. What a better way to spend a summer day?
Let's Get Cracking!
Love Deanna
