Letters to Merle Blog Hop ~ Wrap Up Post! Thank You

Letters to Merle Wrap Up Post

During the month of February I asked all of my readers to join in sending birthday cards to Merle for his 50th Birthday. This was a blog hop and a few other fabulous blogs participated in making this possible. Merle lives with down syndrome and has not only inspired me but everyone around him! I would like to take this time to thank everyone who sent Merle a card and joined in the blog hop :)
Thank You! :)

As part of Merle's Birthday his family threw him a Card Shower and because of you, he received over 335 Cards throughout the month of February! Here is where Merle received Cards From:

 Georgia, Missouri, Hawaii, Mississippi, Pennsylvania, Colorado, Utah, Indiana, Ohio, California,Texas, South Carolina, Arkansas, New York, North Carolina, Iowa, Australia and a few others. Merle and his family want to thank each person that took time out of their busy lives to send him a card. It meant the world to him. One day when he was opening cards he said "I sure have a lot of fans!" So after that his family always told him he had more "fan mail"! He received a package from Australia. It was the ball cap he is holding in the picture, and it is now his favorite :)

The Letters To Merle Blog Hop is now over, but you can still learn what it was all about Here.
