Hi Sue

Just wanted to check the deadline for you to receive Xmas cards for the Cards for Troops. I've been busily crafting and would hate to miss the deadline. I know it's October but do you have a specific date?

Laura

Hi Laura

Thank you for asking about the 2012 Christmas Cards for Troops drive. There is indeed a specific deadline. It is on Tuesday October 30th.

I had not realised I had forgotten to provide a deadline date on the events page so thank you for reminding me to do that :) I shall be sure to go straight there after writing this note to you.

Thank you for making time to create some Cards for our Troops! I have started making mine too and I have also received some from others, and it is wonderful to see the support for this worthy cause.

I look forward to hearing from you again :)

Susan

How to Make Cards for the Troops

I would love to help with this but don't know how to get started.

Thank you!!!!!!!

Hi Maria

There's good news - you can help! All you need do is make some cards of your own and write to me again with your email address. I will then privately send you an address where the cards can be sent. The address is an Australian one though.

Another idea would be to make cards for American Troops. I found some information for you about how to do that. In America you have a number of options for how to send cards, so do have a look at that page.

It's wonderful to hear that people want to help make Cards for Troops. It makes my heart glad and I know it makes everyone who receives our cards glad too.

I'm working on a new batch of cards to send right now. I meet with some church ladies and together we made 36 Mother's Day cards and we had a lot of fun doing it at the same time! So make it a social occasion when you make cards, too.

You CAN make a difference.

Christmas cards for the soldiers

by Ronell Ryan
(Cape Town, South Africa)


Hello Susan

A great idea for sending Christmas cards to the soldiers. I would have loved to make more, but time is not always on my side. I've sent you a package of cards and have sent you a picture of 3 of the cards today.

Good luck with all your projects.

Regards
Ronell
South Africa

****************************


Ronell, I do appreciate you making and sending Cards for the Troops. Your cards arrived safely and I have packaged them up ready to send to our deployed Troops.

Altogether I received 247 cards. Wasn't that wonderful? I was so pleased with that. I have written a thank you and shown a picture of the bundles of cards everyone made, all ready for posting.

I am sure the Aussie Troops who are deployed a long way from friends and family at Christmas will truly appreciate having a little something special to send home this year.


Thank you again for your good heart.

Susan

PS: There will be another drive for Cards for the Troops soon. Keep a lookout for details, won't you.

Making Cards for the Troops is fun!

Hello Susan,

I have made a lot of cards and would love to give them to you for the troops overseas. I hope I can but wanted to find out if OK with you before I sent them. I have birthday cards for male and female, birthday cards for children boys and girls, baby, thinking of you, anniversary and more. Please let me know if you do not want them . If I don't hear back from you ( and I understand you are probably really busy), I will send them to you.

Thanking you

Hi Julie

First of all, thank you so much for your generous offer! Yes, I am still collecting Cards for the Troops, and all those kinds you mentioned will be very welcome. The troops cannot always get the type of cards they would like to when they are posted overseas, so our cards get handed out to them as needed. I am always collecting for the cause. The time period for Mother's Day is now past, so I will commence the Christmas drive next. All of the cards you are sending will still be very welcome!

You can send them to me at this address:

Happy cardmaking for the Troops

Cards For Troops Address

Hi

My name is Gaye Robins and I run
PORT MACQUARIE CARDS FOR THE AUSSIE TROOPS.
I was wondering, we need addresses to send our cards to. Can you help us please.

Thank you

Gaye Robins

Hi Gaye

Thank you for contacting me. It is so nice to hear from another group of crafters who take the time to make Cards for our Troops! We just finished making a bunch of cards for Mother's Day and sending them off. That happened at the end of March. Now we are focusing on Christmas Cards for the next half of the year but the Troops do like to have cards for all occasions. We have sent them birthday cards, anniversary cards, thinking of you cards, I love you cards, really we have sent cards fro all occasions.

Before we send cards to our troops, we always contact the National Welfare Coordination Centre on 1800 801 026. This is free service provided 24 hours a day. They change the addresses to send cards to each time so it is important to do this before sending any packages. The proper address will also help you get free postage for your under 2kg packages, and you can find out when the cut off dates are for posting your cards to the troops.

If you have only a few cards and it won't cost you too much postage, you can always send them to me for inclusion in our Drive. Here is my address:

Susan Luke
Cards For Troops Drive
PO Box 97
MORAYFIELD QLD 4506

Thank you again for being involved in the Cards for Troops Drive. Making cards for our deployed troops shows our support for them in a practical way and they do appreciate being able to write home with a handmade card.

Happy Cardmaking for the Troops!

Would like to help with Christmas cards for the troops

by Delores
(Eugene, or)




I found your website by accident. I would love to make some cards for the troops. Is there a size limit? Most of mine are the normal 4 1/4 X 5 1/2. I've attached a sample of some recent cards I've made so you have an ideas of what my cards are like. The cards I make for the troops would be Christmas themed. Let me know if there are any restrictions on the cards such as no raised embellishments,

Delores

Hi Delores

Thank you so much for your interest in making Christmas cards for the Cards for the Troops drive. It's time to make these, yes! If you follow the link I put in, you will see all the details for deadlines etc.

I will be sending the cards in standard Post Office 2kg boxes. Last year, people sent me some pretty rosette decorations and they were accepted, so I think it will be fine if you have some raised embellishments on your cards or decide to make some bigger than standard sizes. I think standard sizes are probably easier for our Troops to post back to loved ones (do include envelopes too), but people have also sent in larger than standard cards and they have been accepted. The only other stipulation is that all cards be hand made.

The cards you sent as examples of your work are great. The embossing and popped up images are just fine. They are very pretty, by the way.

It is wonderful to let our Troops know we remember them and appreciate what they are doing for us.

I'm looking forward to seeing your cards now, Delores!

Happy crafting and do write again if you have more questions.

Susan
