Donating ATCs for soldiers in the Middle East

A friend of mine is in his fifth year organizing a donation for troops who are overseas in Iraq or Kosovo: Stockings for Soldiers.

He has asked me if I could rustle up 715 ATCs so he could put one in each soldier's Christmas stocking.

I said that all I could do was try, and I here I am.

The cards need to be at their office by October 26th so they can be shipped in time for a December arrival.

If you are interested, you can send one, ten, whatever. Include your kids and friends in the project, if you wish.
We cannot expect to get a card back, but I will write an info sheet for each unit and will send along one blank card for everyone.

These are sent with Christmas in mind, so you could do a theme for that, but they could be autumn or bees or peace or quotes or anything.

Thank you for your consideration.

Heidi, I just sent out word to my ATC making pals. I'll try to rustle up some enthusiasm here at home soon too.

Thanks !

What IS an ATC? I could likely be interested if I had a clue...

Thanks for posting this! We're new to ATCs, but the kids (4, we homeschool) are very excited about doing this for the soldiers. I run a group of around 1400 members called FreeHomeschool in Yahoo groups and will send this to them as well. Hope the project's response is great and he gets all of the ATCs needed!

I just wanted to say thank you for contributing to the stockings we received here in Kosovo. I couldn't believe how many cards were put together by everyone when I saw it mentioned on here. It's very much appreciated.
