Please add me to the list. This will be my third year. The first year, I didn't sign up, I just sent cards as I wasn't sure I could commit.

If there's a camp theme, please let us know.

Thanks for all you do for these deserving children and best of luck to you, your daughter and the rest of your family.

How do you ship 200 cards, an $11 express box or something else?

Whatever box I can find that best fits them.

If you go to the USPS website you can use their calculate price tool to determine prices. A large flat rate priority box costs $16.85.

In my particular case (when I put in the respective zipcodes) I find that I can send an 8 lbs package to Rhonda for $15.66. 200 cards weigh significantly less then 8 lbs so in my case its cheaper to NOT use a flat rate box. In fact last year they weighed just under 3 lbs and cost me only $8.71 to send by priority mail in my own box. I do print postage labels online and that saved me about $1.25 so if you were walking in to the PO it would cost you close to $10 instead. Still cheaper then the flat rate. If the cards you make are all flat and are on the small side (mine often have flowers or 3D stickers) you might be able to use a medium box (I couldn't) but that would still run $12.35.

Of course these are the rates from my area. The rates from yours are probably different since postal rates ARE geographically based for packages.

My group plans to participate again. What is the deadline this year, and does the camp have a theme this year?

2 questions:

How old are the children who receive the cards?

Do you want envelopes along with the cards?

Thanks for doing what you do!

Hope Rhonda doesn't mind me answering. From what I remember from doing this in past years the kids are anywhere from 6-15 yrs old and the cards do not need to have envelopes.
