This years Holiday Card Project

brought record numbers once again!! We were hoping for 18,500 cards and we received 19,130 cards!!!!

 

THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!

 

Here at the ShareaCard office, the preparations for the Holiday Card Project begin around the end of August.

 

 I start assembling the boxes that I predict will be needed to hold all the cards that are anticipated to come in. This year, I was fortunate enough to have some space in the family room of my other house to spread everything out.

 

 

I keep a spread sheet of all the participants and the contacts we have over the years and I construct a "recruitment letter" asking them to get involved once again. I print out those letters (I think this year it was over 300!) along with enclosing a brochure for the ones who aren't familiar with the workings of ShareaCard and get the envelopes all filled, addressed, stamped and ready to be mailed.

 

Sometimes, the press call me to do interviews. Other times, I reach out to them. As much as I hate that part....I suck it up and do what I have to do in the best interest of ShareaCard :)
