    Is there a special sort of card we should look for? And can/should we mention your family so they know who it came from? 🙂 This sounds like something me and my kids would enjoy doing!

      The kids enjoy receiving any kind of mail (store bought, handmade, etc.). We had some postcards made specifically for this purpose but went through them so quickly that lately I have resorted to just buying “cheery” cards or blank note cards and writing a personal note inside until I can order more postcards with our logo on them. If you wanted to do Valentines, I think even the tiny ones that kids give out in school or a handmade card or even a postcard would be just fine! They just like getting mail period! Thanks for participating! I recently had a grandma post on our Facebook page that our card was the first piece of mail her grandson received and the whole family was excited about it! Definitely a worthwhile cause if it can bring a smile to these families! 🙂 If you want to mention that you saw their name on our Operation Smile list, that would be great!

        Awesome! My daughter and I are headed to the Christian bookstore in a little while because they have cute stationary. 🙂 She wants to participate too! I’ll be sure to mention the Operation Smile list. 😀

        Hey, can I ask if you know – is the child’s name Julie Swindle or Michaela (the 9 year old, Miracles for Michaela)? 😛 I’m confused! lol

        Michaela is the child. I think they are just using the other lady’s address for safety/privacy reasons.

        Great! That’s what I originally thout but then I was scared I was wrong and wouldn’t it be terrible to get something addressed to someone else?! lol
