Penny's Postcard Posse sent more than 18,760 miniature quilts to soldiers abroad.
During the time Penny's Postcard Posse was active, more than 19,000 little fabric postcards were sent to troops in the Middle East.
Diane Malaznik, a dedicated Red Cross Volunteer, donated thousands of hours gathering, sorting and boxing up the postcards for shipment overseas.
Through her contacts, soldiers who normally didn't get much mail, received the gift of a hand made fabric postcard showing the support of the folks "back home."
Often school children made fabric postcards for the holidays and sent them to Diane to package up and send to the troops.
Diane counted on several equally dedicated volunteers to make the postcards.
My many and heartfelt thanks to those who contributed so much to this worthy project.
And, Welcome Home to the Troops!
