We just came across this awesome opportunity and thought we’d share it with all of you. It’s a chance to do a good deed, possibly win an amazing prize, and be crafty… all at the same time!
A 10-year-old Arizona boy came up with the idea of sending a handmade thank-you card to every single U.S. troop overseas. All 180,000 of them. Needless to say, he could use some help.
If you’d like to contribute, all you have to do is make 5 cards and send them to Bazzill Basics Paper. You can find the address here. While you’re there, download an entry form to mail in with the cards and you’ll be entered into a drawing to win two FREE tickets to Creative Escape, the ultimate scrapbook indulgence event, which will be held August 25-27 in Phoenix, Arizona (travel and hotel not included). For every 5 cards you send, you’ll be entered into the drawing, and you can send as many cards as you like. All cards must be received by July 1, 2011.
There’s nothing better than making a craft that makes someone smile. And we’re guessing if you win the grand prize, you’ll have a pretty big smile on your face too!
