About Operation Write Home
Operation Write Home is a group of crafters from across America (and beyond!) who make handmade cards for deployed heroes so they can keep in touch with their loved ones at home! We serve all branches of the military in all deployed locations, including those stationed aboard ships.

The project began in 2007 with just a few cards sent by friends on a message board; eventually started, and in September 2009, we became Operation Write Home - to better focus on what we're all about: helping heroes keep in touch with home!

Our crafters range in age, location, and level of skill - but all have a desire to help those who serve us. Cards are made by individuals, groups, schools, scouts, and sent to our volunteer shippers in quantities both small and large! Shipping donations of any size are appreciated - from $1 to any amount - and can be included with card donations to any shipper, or mailed separately, or via Paypal. Thank you for partnering with us!
