Heroes Card Drive Update

Hey everyone! It's Christy. I wanted to stop in and give you guys an update on the Heroes Card Drive that we've been hosting all month. Just look at this adorable photo of Laurel's son Lucas helping her carry packages out of the post office! Isn't he a doll? Such a cutie.

We want to thank everyone who participated from the bottom of our hearts. These cards will mean so much to our troops and their families. Laurel reported that she's received over 700 cards so far! That's a lot of love that will be zooming back and forth across oceans and lands, helping our soldiers and the ones they've left behind feel connected through the loving sentiments they inscribe inside.

If you haven't mailed out your cards yet, please get those in the mail tomorrow! I know I'm definitely a late straggler. I wanted to make as many cards as possible, so I waited to send until the very last minute. If that describes you too, please take a moment tomorrow to pop a card or two in the mail and send them off to Laurel at the address in the link above. Every card is a contribution! And every card will be greatly appreciated by those you will likely never know.

Our sweet Laurel filmed a short video update for you all. Stick around to the end, both Lucas and Cooper make a cameo. :o)

Thanks so much for watching! Have a great evening!
