Help Anchor Paper Express Support our Troops during the month of August!

Yes, it's still summer...we know...but fall is here before we know it and with fall comes the Holiday Season close behind! Even though many of us do not think about this regularly, there are more than tens of thousands of US troops deployed overseas who will not be home with their families during this holiday season. One organization that does think about this is Operation Gratitude.  It is their goal to “lift morale and put smiles on faces by sending care packages to Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Marines deployed overseas” (operationgratitude.com).

Anchor Paper Express wants to help in their search for donations and we need our customers to make this happen! We believe that every good deed doesn't need to go unnoticed! If you drop off 5 or more handmade cards between now and August 31st, you will receive 20% off your scrapbooking purchase for that day. Since we have so many talented card makers who shop at our stores, we wanted to offer a special discount on scrapbooking purchases for donating cards!

We are looking for a variety of cards to donate including: birthday, holiday, thinking of you, miss you, or any other generic greeting card that would put a smile on someone’s face. The idea is to have handmade cards available for our troops to send home to their loved ones. Operation Gratitude is also looking for cards of encouragement or cards filled with personal messages for our troops; if you decide to send a card of encouragement, please do not seal the envelopes.

Anchor Paper Express knows this just a small token of appreciation for all our troops have done for us, but if we can put a smile their faces or the faces of their loved ones, then this donation was worth it!

During August, Please drop off 5 or more handmade cards between August 1st and 31st, and receive 20% off your scrapbooking purchase for that day!

We extend a huge THANK YOU to all who participate!
