I don't begin to know how to thank you

I received some of your cards in a box that my unit received. I don't begin to know how to thank you for giving me a way to stay in touch with my family back home. I am deployed to Iraq and I have family in Pennsylvania. My parents have been helping me raise my daughter which is no easy task being that she is a young college freshman. Your cards have allowed me to thank my parents for their support of me and my daughter. They have also allowed me to send notes to my daughter letting her know that I love her and support her in this new phase of her life. I gave each of my eight soldiers cards for Halloween and it brightened their day and they have posted them on bulletin boards in our office area. I also just sent home cards to my extended family for Thanksgiving. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for allowing me to have this opportunity to stay connected with loved ones. The cards are absolutely beautifully handcrafted. You can feel the love that was put into each card. I am looking forward to redeploying and crafting cards for family and friends and to donate to your organization. I have been looking for a hobby for some time. So your organization has brightened my life in many ways. I will be deployed until April and if you could send me some more cards they would be greatly appreciated. They will go to good use by allowing me to keep sending personal messages home and by uplifting the spirits of my soldiers and comrades here. Thank you so much for what you are doing.
