Now I'm a sucker for a good cause so this was right up my street!!
Operation Blue Witch Squadron was set up here in the UK by Cazz Wright, a fellow crafter She'd heard about schemes around the country that were sending handmade cards to the guys and gals serving overseas to enable them to send cards back home to their family & friends. As Cazz has a family connection with the RAF she chose to set up and co-ordinate a similar scheme for RAF Personnel serving abroad.
If you are a card -maker and have a few spare cards knocking around that you can't sell why not send them over to be used by RAF Personnel via Operation Blue Witch Squadron. Cards are accepted from anyone and everyone and if they are not handmade but shop-bought then that's okay too. All they ask is that there is NO LOOSE GLITTER on the cards for safety reasons. Cards must be packaged individually with an envelope inside a cellophane bag. Cards can be any size up to A5 and apart from specific occasion cards, they are looking for general birthday cards, anniversary cards, blank cards & baby cards. Please remember that there are both men & women serving abroad so cards are requested for both.
Please send cards to the following address and include your name & location:
FAO Cazz Wright
Operation Blue Witch Squadron
Flat14a Cambridge Street
Details of the scheme can be found at http://obws.webs.com/
I am sending a large package of cards to Cazz tomorrow - hope you will too!!
