Operation Write Home Blog Hop

Operation Write Home (OWH) is a not-for-profit organization that collects and sends handmade greeting cards to American soldiers for their use in keeping touch with their families back home. They need to raise $13,000 to cover holiday shipping costs.

To help raise funds, K 'n K Designs will be selling 7 new digi sets designed exclusively for this cause. Each "set" includes an image and some greetings, in both Jpeg an PNG file formats, all in a zip file.

These sets are available for just $2 each, or in various value bundles with all proceeds donated to Operation Write Home.

These digis can be purchased at the K 'n K Designs Blog from October 17th thru noon November 1st. For those of you who don't craft but would still like to aid the cause can donate directly to OWH. Information on how to do that can be found HERE.

Let's get to the HOP!!

PRIZES:

Make sure you leave some love as you hop because ... two lucky hoppers who comment along the way will win a digi prize pack from K 'n K Designs! (Be sure to check Deedee's blog on Monday to see if you have won!)
