AnyHero challenge for November

Since Thanksgiving comes at the end of November, many of us make a concerted effort to express our gratitude for a number of our blessings this month.  Thanksgiving has long been my favorite holiday because it's not about presents and consumerism (as all of the others are), but it's about family and the aspects of our lives we hold most dear.  

As Hurricane Sandy swept through the East Coast this weekend, many of us realized once again how blessed we are.  This month, I'm going to channel that feeling of gratitude and abundant blessing into AnyHero cards for Operation Write Home.

I'm challenging myself to write one AnyHero card per day for the rest of the month.  Will you join me?  Leave a comment here letting me know you're in.  I'm going to work on a great prize for people who report back at the end of the month and let us know how many AnyHero cards they were able to do this month (even if that number isn't 30). 

So, leave a comment and get writing!  Our heroes will appreciate knowing just how much they are valued!

  1. Thanks for the challenge...I'm in! I am working on my first box of cards to donate to OWH and hadn't thought about adding AnyHero mail to it. Now I will! Thanks for the freminder about the importance of sending AnyHero mail.
