Caring Hearts Card Drive 2015 Update & Winners List

Hi everyone. I know many of you have been waiting for the update for Caring Hearts Card Drive. here we  go!

First of all, thank you, thank you, thank you for your amazing support for Caring Hearts Card Drive. Because of your support and generosity, we have another record breaking year!! We collected 21,681 cards & covering 127 nursing homes throughout US, Canada and Australia. 

Jennifer McGuire, Tina Schrof, Linda Langes, Anita Recksiedler, Caroline Bredeson and I are honored that you support our card drive. We are a small team & we do this on volunteer basis and your support means so much to us.

This is truly a community effort. And, from the bottom of my heart, thank you for caring, thank you for sharing our vision of giving & spreading kindness. When I started this, I never thought it would get this big, but I'm glad that it did, because we are doing what I believe Christmas is all about. That it's about caring, sharing & giving joy to others.

I am excited that many more people express interest to add their local nursing homes to our list. As long as we have cards to cover the number of residents, we gladly send cards to the nursing home that was suggested to us. :)

Now, time to celebrate this record breaking year with some fabulous giveaway. Here's the list of all the prize winners. Ladies, I'll be emailing you all. Thank you again to all for your support & caring hearts. We appreciate you so much!

So many cards collected and distributed! It is so wonderful that so many people gave their time and talents (including lots by the orgnaizers) to help bring some joy to people in nursing homes. I only learned of this initiative this year so i plan to start earlier in 2016. It is such a wonderful initiative! Many thanks to all for caring.
