Default SEPTEMBER 2012 MISSION ~ CARDS FOR A CAUSE

2012 Cards for A Cause
~ SEPTEMBER MISSION ~
Stamp from the Heart!


ORGANIZATION BEING FEATURED:

Cole's Foundation

September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month! In honor of that, this September we are featuring Cole's Foundation. Cole’s Foundation was created as a tribute to Cole, a sweet little boy who fought so hard and touched so many. Recognizing the incredible needs of families struggling through the nightmare of caring for a child with a terminal illness, the organization was created to utilize the 21st century’s technology to provide support and assistance to families facing the most devastating challenge that a parent could face, the illness and death of a beloved child.

Our cards will be used for COLE'S Foundation's Send-A-Smile program. The foundation sends goodie packages to individuals at home as well in the hospital. The goodie packages include toys, games, cute hats for those bald heads, stuffed animals, books, etc. and a card is enclosed as well.


CONTACT PERSON:
Cindy ~ Mothermark


REFERRED BY:

Fellow SCSer Caterina (caterinafmig)

TYPE OF CARDS REQUESTED:

Cards of encouragement such as Thinking of you, Because I Care, uplifting, supportive, cheerful and happy. Blank inside, no get well, please. The cards will be for girls/boys of all ages - Coles Foundation has infants, children, teens as well as adults with all kind of life-threatening diseases.


SPECIAL RESTRICTIONS:
Please be sure to leave the inside of cards blank as for wording because the foundation uses some standard phrases when they send out happy mail. The front of the card can read, Thinking of You, Because I Care, happy and uplifting words but not get well. The reason the foundation does not use get well is because many of the members are either terminal or die from toxic treatments so we try to be as sensitive as possible. Envelopes are appreciated by not required.

ADDITIONAL IMPORTANT INFORMATION:

Website Cole's Foundation


MAILING ADDRESS:

The cards should be mailed to:


Julie Barnes
464 Bren Drive
Lancaster, Ohio 43130
