EKSuccess Brands and Michaels, North America’s largest arts & crafts specialty retailer, are getting into the holiday spirit a little early this year, all to support our troops. The creative consumer products company and craft retailer will be sponsoring a booth at the Wrigleyville Block Party during the Cubs vs. Cardinals game where visitors can stop by and make holiday cards for U.S. and Canadian service men and women deployed overseas. Read on to see how you can enter to win a pair of tickets to the Friday Game!
From Friday Aug. 19th, to Sunday Aug. 21st, the booth will be open for passersby to create cards using K&Company™ paper and embellishments and EK Tools™ pens and adhesive. All of the cards will then be sent to the Operation Christmas Cards organization, where they will be forwarded to military bases in Afghanistan, Japan, Iraq, Egypt and Germany. According to the organization, these cards will be the only correspondence that about half of these service members will receive during the holidays.
The event is part of EKSuccess Brands’ approach to collect 25,000 holiday cards for Operation Christmas Cards. Other efforts include Michaels in-store card making, an online Spotted Canary School™ class, and community initiatives. Operation Christmas Cards itself has a goal to send 175,000 cards this year. Join Craft Critique at this fun event this weekend and support a good cause!
