2012 Caring Hearts Card Drive

Hi all. It's almost holiday time again and I am back for the 3rd year for my annual Caring Hearts Card Drive to collect holiday cards for the elderly that lives in nursing homes. Last year I teamed up with the fabulous Jennifer McGuire and we were able to send card to quite a few nursing homes.

This year, since Jennifer just had a new baby, I am back to running it again by myself. I hope that many of you will join and help me to reach as many nursing homes as possible and continue to spread more joy.

The holidays are about family, about kindness, and joy. During this time many of the elderly who lives in nursing homes would really feel the loneliness or missing their family. Wouldn't it be so 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? I hope that many of you will help out in the 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 30, 2012. I will need to receive your cards by November 30, 2012.
  •  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 (it can be stamped or hand written).  
  • 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:
                        Vera Yates
                        P.O Box 19158
      Sugar Land, TX 77496

  • In each package, PLEASE include a piece of paper with your name, address, email address and how many cards you sent.  This helps me 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, I have several PRIZES ready for several winners. There will be many winners and remember… the more cards you send the better your chances. :)

I'll update the prize list as more prizes coming in. And huge thank you to all the fabulous companies who support this card drive by donating awesome prizes.
