11.11.11 Veteran’s Day Blog Hop

BasicGrey is proud to support our nation’s deployed heroes through Operation Write Home! This organization has sent over one million cards overseas so our service members can keep in touch with their loved ones while they’re away. We want to invite you to join in this amazing service and send in YOUR cards to be used by our nation’s  heroes. Visit Operation Write Home for the details and be sure to check out the Mailroom section for all the important guidelines.
Today we’re excited to be a part of Operation Write Home’s Veteran’s Day 2011 Blog Hop as we celebrate the heroes of yesterday and today.  You can start at the beginning of the hop to insure you see all of the amazing cards created.
