I could hear my sister's smile

From someone who just made a Paypal donation, in response to our thankyou note:

You're welcome. It's my pleasure. On Monday I received a card from my little sister who is stationed in Iraq with the US Army. The card was beautiful and looked handmade. It put a smile on my face and then I wondered where in the world my sister would have obtained such a beautiful handmade card to send...then I saw the stamp on the back for and another stamp "from New Hampshire with love." So I visited your website and was touched by the efforts of so many volunteers to create and ship these beautiful cards to our soldiers overseas. Since it put such a smile on my face to get such a card, and I could hear my sister's smile in her email when I wrote to thank her...I knew that other families must really appreciate this too, and I wanted to contribute. I have very little craft ability, and even less free time, so creating my own cards didn't seem like a likely option. But I was excited to be able to contribute in some tangible way toward the cost of envelopes and shipping...helping other people's beautiful cards get to their destination.

Thank you so much for what you're doing for our soldiers and their families.
