Today I delivered our Footprint cards to the Gold Coast University Hospital. The efforts of many ladies in helping with fundraising and hours of cutting and assembling meant that I was able to deliver
- footprint cards in pink and blue along with snail and embossing powder refills to replenish the existing box
- another complete box of footprint cards, Versamark ink and refill, snail and refills, heat gun, embossing powders and embossing buddy
Let's hope that these cards take a long time to be used up, given their intended purpose but Lucinda has assured me that they are an important part of the grieving process and help to preserve memories in a treasured way.
Here is the lovely Lucinda taking delivery...and me...delivering.
And we have received another Cards For Troops letter: a lovely handwritten note from Captain Kelly in Afghanistan.
"To the Lorikeet Stampers, I'd like to personally thank you for all your wonderful Christmas cards. I was lucky enough to have made claim to some to be able to send home to family in Australia. They were just beautiful and I certainly appreciate the effort and those of you who kindly thought of us here in Afghanistan."
The letter goes on to explain that cards were sent to relatives in Mackay, Sydney, Perth and Brisbane. We always get a letter or two each year to thank us for the Christmas cards - how nice it is for the soldiers to show their appreciation.
Thanks to all of you who contribute to these causes.
