Cards for a good cause.

Jess over at Jess’s Scrapbook Assortment is holding a candy with a difference a bit about Jess below

I am volunteer for my husbands brigades Care Team. In the event of a tragedy I may be called on to give support to a spouse. I had an idea of making sympathy cards to give to the spouses. Cards are given to them, but I feel handmade cards would seem more personal, then something from a store shelf. How does this tie in with blog candy you ask? I'd love to tell you! To enter this challenge you must mail your card to me. By doing so you understand it could be used to comfort a military spouse in the event of a tragedy. It also means you have the chance to win one of three blog candy giveaways!

These women are sending their husbands off, at the end of August, knowing they might never return. Let's send some cards to Jess just in case, god forbid, those husbands do not return.

Jess's husband is also one of the ones leaving.
Pop over and give her some support


Hugs

Linda

Bless your heart. I couldn't bare to be apart from my hubby for a day! I cannot begin to understand the hurt they must be feeling just letting them go.

God Bless them all!
