Stockings for Soldiers


3000 Christmas cards made as at 1st August 2012

Many of you know that I make cards and contribute to the military that are deployed overseas. This year I am going onboard and coordinating the card section of  
Stockings for Soldiers Project 
co-ordinated by Selena Smith and Michelle Potter
on behalf of our Soldiers based mainly in Townsville, Queensland.
Last year they sent out 1550 boxes to our Military.
This year they are sending 3000. In the small way that I can contribute, I will be making Christmas Cards for the deployed.

You are very welcome to contribute as well. You can send your cards to me no later than the 31st August 2012 so they can be forwarded onto Selena and Michelle to start the public signing process.

The cards need to be 10cm x 10cm single sided, i.e no folds  so they can be hung on metal walls/lockers with magnets (do not attach magnets to them-the recipients will put it on themselves). Decorate the front only. 

Here is a video via Channel 9 about the boxes that were sent in 2011 which is the first year this has been done.

Feel free to EMAIL me if you have any questions
A huge THANK YOU to contributors to date
