Win money for YOUR cruise vacation!
Enter the Craft it Forward contest – this month they’re all about CARDS! Upload your card project here (click the “upload” button) – make sure your photo is well lit, crisp and clear – and be sure to include “OWH” in the title so we all know to vote for you! Poor photography and cryptic names won’t get you too far.
During the week yours is posted (you’ll be notified by email), get your friends and family to vote vote vote daily. After there are winners from each of the weeks, the contest folks pick one of the weekly winners to receive $500.00! Doesn’t that sound like a deposit on your cruise berth?? Plus they give $500.00 to the charity of YOUR choice. How cool is that?
|St Kitts…one of our ports of call! Lovely!|
A great piece highlighting those who served – and those who serve our veterans! God bless them all.
Be sure to post on your facebook, twitter, blog, etc, about our veterans this day. Honor their service, and invite others to do the same!
Okay, friends, here’s the requested information about the coming video!
First, the idea came from ABC’s “Your three words” project – you can view a bunch of what people have done by clicking here. There are some really touching ones! We’ll send our video to ABC after it’s finished and posted on Sept 12th – they just might be interested in OWH after they see our homage to their idea! Wouldn’t that be a great way to get their attention during our Birthday Bash?
This will be an inspiring video….starring all of America! It’s an attempt to tell others the emotional story of what Operation Write Home means to everyone – is it an expression of your patriotism? A way to support your own hero? Linking arms with the rest of the nation to show your support for deployed warriors? Or maybe you’re a hero or family member who’s received cards, and want to tell everyone what you think. We’d love to cover all of this – in a series of images, each with just three words! We’ll set the photos to some beautiful and inspiring music as a soundtrack, and publish it on our birthday, 9/12!
- Patriotic: We love heroes, Our heroes rock
- Crafty: Heroes inspire me, Stamping 4 heroes, No glitte
- Postal: My OWH box (photo of your packed box!)
- Heroes: Sending my love, Keeping in touch, We love OWH
- Families who have received cards: Love Daddy’s card, Free mail rocks!
Here’s are some examples, created by our very own mascot Ciara! (You know you’d love to star in a video with her, so go get busy!)
Post your three words photo on your blog or gallery and link it up here, or if you want to keep it a surprise for the video, email them to Sandy. Remember, these are due by AUGUST 31 please, so we have time to produce the video for the Birthday Bash on Sept 12th. Thanks for your participation!
Please share this video on your blog, Facebook, Twitter, etc – let’s get this out to as many military moms as we can!
This is being posted in The Mailroom as well – but since we know not everyone goes there often, we’re posting it here too. If you can only view videos on YouTube and not on our site or in blogger, go to the YouTube video itself.
Any of your men want to try this one?
