Do you know someone who needs cards?

I love it when you guys send me contact information for individuals or organizations requesting cards. I can share those requests here, and together we can send a little extra cheer to someone in need.

December Giving Update

With your help, we were able to donate $113 to No Kid Hungry last month. That amount was matched with a grant, making our donation double to $226. Wow! That’s 2,260 meals for hungry kids here in America. Thank you for your help!

We also sent in 36 cards to Cards for Hospitalized kids.  That’s 36 smiles for kids who could use a little encouragement. Don’t feel like you have to stop though! You can send cards in any time of year!
