In conjuction with EK Success Brands, Beverly's Fabrics & Crafts stores are participating in Operation Christmas Cards, a campaign sending holiday cards to US and Canadian military men and women who are serving overseas. The goal for Operation Christmas Cards this year is to send 175,000 cards to bases around the world. For some, these cards will be the only holiday correspondence they receive.
EK Success Brands has set a goal to collect 9,000 cards before November 11th. Your local Beverly's Fabrics & Crafts stores will be acting as drop off locations for this effort. Additionally, you can stop by your local Beverly's Fabric & Crafts store on Saturday, November 5th, 2011, 1pm to closing to make a free card to send to the troops!
If you are making your own cards at home, here are a few simple guidelines:
• Please DO NOT seal the envelopes, or apply postage
• Feel free to write supportive and encouraging notes
• You may include your email or mailing address inside the card
• Please do not use products that contain exposed glitter
• Non-crafted, store-bought cards may be sent as well
If you are not able to drop your cards off at one of our stores, you can still participate! Cards may be sent directly to Operation Christmas Cards.
Make a difference to someone this Christmas with a gift of your thoughtfulness and support. It’s what we crafters do best!
