Just calculating the 5571 by the .44 cent stamp comes out to 2451.24 in stamps! Mind you alot are coming from overseas so that total isn't accurate but just wow in the cost to send these cards! Not to mention how much was spent to buy cards too!!! You all are so awesome in making this christmas season and Hanukah kwanis season a super great one!

This was my first time participating in a swap, I sent all my cards out. I love how well organized the swap was; for as many names and volunteer's we're involved. I hope and pray that all the inmates love their cards, and enjoy their holiday; cus I know we all wish they we're here. Thank you Jody & Shari.

Thanks for letting me participate in the card swap. It took my mind off my husband not being here during the holidays.
And I think it is wonderful that there was so many cards sent out with love!!

Were there any last minute additions? If so, I still have some blank cards sitting around, and would gladly send a few more out (10 or so easy)

If you volunteered to send out cards & didn't receive your list, please PM me and let me know.

As of 12:59pm on Dec. 7, 2011... Here are the stats from the swap:

There were 340 volunteers sending out cards this year

There were 662 names submitted to receive cards

And there are a whopping 5,571 cards being mailed out!!!!!

All of those that were submitted to the swap will be receiving between 8 & 9 cards each!!!

Again... Thank you ALL for making this a WONDERFUL and LARGE swap!!! Overall things went very smoothly and I appreciate each and every one of you!!!!
Wow that is awesome I talked to my dad today and it was so funny cause I wanted to get the cards as a surprise so I did not tell him, so we are talking and asks me about my sisters his daughters and he sounded kind of sad saying he has not received a letter from anyone in over 3 weeks and then he continues and tells me well from family but is really weird that I have been receiving cards from ladies lol he said I was so happy to receive mail but was worried that they were giving me someone else's mail lol so I was cracking up and told him I sign him up for the card swap and he said to thank y'all so very much that it has brighten his days and that now he is going to enjoyed them even more that he is sure that they are for him lol, he said that it was such a great thing because sometimes family forgets about them during the holidays .... So I want to say from the bottom of my heart THANK YOU ALL that took the time to write to Jose in Beaumont tx... And to all that volunteer <3 <3

My cards went out last week.

I did here from my guy in USP McCreary. He sent an eamil saying he was getting cards in the mail. So, the system works.

Thanks to everyone who sent cards to James over at McCreary.

Happy Holidays!!!
