AmeriCorps Alums has partnered with JackCards and Oh My Word to help welcome our new President-elect into the Whitehouse. Our collective goal is to send 1 million personally signed cards to President Obama. The cards will contain personal messages by people from across the country and the world, expressing their encouragement, support and hopes for the 44th President of the United States in time for the Inauguration. $1 from every congratulatory card will be donated to AmeriCorps Alums in order to support AmeriCorps national service opportunities for our country's young adults.
