Maryland Family In Need -- We Need Cards!
« on: Apr 11, 2013, 08:30 AM »
ATTENTION ALL MERCS WITH TRADING CARDS!!!

Across the Star Wars costuming community, we are trying to send them as many trading cards as we can.



Quote from: Jace_Mereel
On January 31st, a Maryland family lost everything in a house fire. Worse, they lost their two youngest daughters, Sophie and Madigan. They're surviving daughter, Morgan, is 8 years old and a huge Star Wars fan.

The mom has been asking friends and family to send cards to Morgan with words of encouragement and support while they try to rebuild their lives. A neighbor got in touch with us and we'd love to get on board.

The Plan:

In the next couple weeks, we'd like as many people as we can get to write a card to Morgan. When lots of cards are gathered, we'll set up a time to present all the goodies to Morgan, in person and in costume!

A lot of you have contacts in other garrisons, so please pass this along to them! The more the merrier!

When you're done, you can mail them to me at the below address.

The mom is really excited about this and I know we can blow them away with support. Thanks in advance!

That's great, thank you!  Kimberly and I are sending our RL and 501st cards... and with our Mercs cards I'm going to drop in a Falco Clan patch.   8)

... and a couple good shots of us.
Personalized "glossies"... cool idea.   ;)

It was originally posted on the 501st board, then cross posted on the RL board.  I grabbed it and put it up here.  If a mod can post it on the Mercs FB page that would be great.  (...I didn't know the protocol for posting something like this on the Mercs FB page.)  Thank you.   :)

I have posted it on the 105th Facebook page to see what we can do, also at our monthly AP we are going to have a card for everyone to sign for them that attends.

Why do we Mandalorians fight?

To bring honor to our culture and preserve the old ways of the Mando'ad. Be it fighting our own, the Empire, or the Republic.

A sympathy card by itself would be fine, that's all they originally asked for.   ;)  Some are doodling themselves inside the card, or for the less artistic, print out and sign a 4" x 6".    :D 

They'll post when they have a date and location for the Invasion/Troop, some time in late May or early June has been mentioned.
