Operation: Love from Home

Operation: Love from Home is a project that Kathy Orr of Georgia began in support of our troops. She will be collecting Christmas cards through November 30 and sending them to our troops to help brighten their holiday season with the love and appreciation of people back home. Mail from the States is a great morale booster for our guys and gals giving so much in service.

Signed yet unsealed Christmas cards should be sent to:

Mrs. Kathy Orr
OPERATION: LOVE FROM HOME
P.O. Box 1660
Loganville, Georgia, 30052

No stamps necessary.

Please note that cards may be either store-bought or hand-made. Letters can even be sent in lieu of cards, if you prefer. Also, Mrs. Orr will accept email greetings which she will print out and mail to troops. Just send them to lovefromhome at gmail dot com.

Mrs. Orr does stipulate that cards should not contain suggestive or otherwise inappropriate materials as this is not a "dating service". (I, personally, wouldn't have thought such a warning necessary, but she clearly does, and since she's done this before, I'm sure she knows what she's talking about!)

My hope is that this is something that will unite the Delaware blogosphere in a common cause. If we pull all our readership together and involve our schools, churches, and community groups, we Delawareans may be able to significantly impact Mrs. Orr's goal of over 2,500 cards this year.

I sent Mrs. Orr an offer to use my cards. I'm glad you linked this or I wouldn't have known to check with her.

Hey there! Just stumbled across your blog - thanks for posting about Operation: Love From Home! yes, it's sad but true... you would not BELIEVE some of the really "out there" and inappropriate stuff I've gotten in past (and even this current) card drive(s)!!!!! Yikes... Anyway, so far it's progressing grandly...have approximately 2,600 cards and still have three weeks to go! the *minimum* goal is 3,000, and I think we're gonna blow that goal right clear outta the water, lol!!!! Thanks so much for all your help in getting the word out, and many thanks to everyone who has sent or will be sending cards!! Y'ALL ROCK!
