11-Year-Old Gathers 30,000 Holiday Cards!

I’m about to mail off a big envelop filled with the 50+ cards we made for the Holiday Mail For Heroes project. (Once I find the stamps…)

But 50 cards is nothing compared to the 30,000 one 11-year-old Indiana boy gathered!  When the folks at NHQ found out about Trey Cox and his amazing efforts, they invited him (and his family) out to  this past weekend’s special card-sorting event to meet fellow special guest, First Lady Laura Bush

Watch CNN coverage of the event (including interviews with Trey and Mrs. Bush) here:
