2011 Cards That Care

Hi all. If you remember, last year I did a card drive to collect holiday cards for the elderly that lives in nursing homes.Well, I am excited to announce that I am doing it again this year and I am teaming up with the fabulousJennifer McGuire.

She's been thinking about doing this for awhile and since we have the same goal, I asked her if she'd like to team up and to my delight she said yes. Our card drive is called CARDS THAT CARE. We hope that many of you will join and help us to reach more nursing homes and spread more joy.

The holidays are about family, about kindness, and joy. The holidays are the times when many of the elderly who lives in nursing homes would really feel the loneliness or missing their family. Wouldn't it be awesome if we can bring a smile to their face & brighten their holiday season simply by sharing our love of card making? A simple gesture to let them know that they are not forgotten.

We all love making cards and what’s better than knowing our creations can bring a smile to others? We hope that many of you will help and join us in our effort to spread joy & cheer.

We have some people that already agree to help us deliver the cards to selected nursing homes.

A few important details:

  • This card drive will be going on till November 31, 2011. We will need to receive your cards by November 30, 2011.
  •  Please make the cards for Christmas or Holiday Wishes. Anyone can send a card, your children, church group, scout troops, etc.
  • All cards need to have a message in it.  Please sign your name and where you are from. 
  • Please don't seal the envelope.
  • Please stick to just cards (all size welcome)
  • And please don't use any pins (safety reason).
  • You can mail the cards  to either one of us:

  • In each package, PLEASE include a piece of paper with your name, address, email address and how many cards you sent.  This helps us in keeping track for prizes! For each card you send, you will get a chance.  So the more cards you send, the better your chances. 
To thank you for your generosity in supporting this drive, we have several PRIZES ready for several winners. There will be many winners and remember… the more cards you send the better your chances. :)
