Cards 4 Kids

I came across this amazing program and just had to share it with my crafty friends. (There are more details on Pat's blog, but I'll summarize it.) Basically, Pat works with a children's hospital to provide handmade cards (blank inside) for sick children to send to their friends and family. They asked her to collect 1,000 Valentines for the kids to send, so she's asking for help. (She needs the Valentines by 2/7/09, but she accepts other cards like birthday, thinking of you, etc all year long.) Here are the 5 Valentines I sent her today. I'm hoping to make some more.

If you go to her blog, MANY of her friends are offering blog candy if you send Pat some cards for the kids, so check it out. She can send you the mailing address, or email me (or leave me a comment), and I'll be glad to get it to you. Thanks in advance if you can help. What a great cause. Happy weekend.

Oh, how wonderful. I am in. When I have a chance this week I will send some to. I like that she does it year round. I will need to write it on my calendar to send every other month or so. I think I could put it in my Birthday organize (that I plan on making).


Thanks for sharing.
