I thought I would take today’s post and get an announcement out about my 2015 Card Charity Event.
I really had to think hard about whether I could put one together this year or not simply because I have so many other things going on but, when you have an enthusiastic, encouraging and lovely group of friends rooting you on and asking for another event, it’s pretty darned hard to resist.
One of the dilemmas I faced this year was that the card organization that we have been working with (Operation Write Home) had made some pretty major changes to their guidelines which, for a group like mine, created challenges. So, I did some research into other organizations who collect cards for causes and I found one called Card Care Connection. You can visit their website at www.cardcareconnection.com if you are curious about what they do but basically, they collect hand made cards to send to a list of people who have cancer or other terminal diseases. How great is that?!
So, to make a long story short, I’ve renamed my annual card event to Send A Smile (formerly Stamp A Stack for the Troops) and I am hoping we can send Card Care Connection a great big box of cards that will put a smile on somone’s face.
This year’s event will take place on May 3rd from 1:00 pm to 6:00 pm.
We will be making 10 different cards (2 of each card) with one of each card going to the Card Care Connection. As always, the other set is yours to keep and use. Our cards this year will be an assortment of thinking of yous and happy hellos. The kind that will put a smile on the face of whomever receives it.
Kit Cost is $23.00
Kits include everything you need (except adhesive) to complete all 20 cards including envelopes.
If you are in the immediate area, I would love to see you at the event, but if you cannot attend and would still like to help, I will also be taking donations on my registration page. Those donations will then be sent on to Card Care Connection in the form of a check once the event is over.
Thank you, in advance, for your support of this event. Let’s work together to make a difference in someone else’s life.
