Default Cards for Jayden (age 6)

Hello everyone. I am hoping to flood a little boy with some cards. If you, and anyone or any group you know, would be willing to send some fun cards to 6 year old boy, I would really appreciate it. The young man's name is Jayden. He is six years old, in the first grade (reads very well) and loves anything to do with trucks or race cars. They can be sent to my address and I will see that he gets them.

Cards for Jayden
c/o Louise DuMont
24 Welch Road
Ringwood, NJ 07456

Background - A few weeks ago Jayden (age 6), his mom (Sarah), and his little sister (Ella, Age 2 1/2) went to a pumpkin farm with his mom's friend and her two kids (also ages 6 & 2 1/2). To make a long story short, there was a serious accident. Jayden's mom has a broken femur and numerous other injuries to her legs, the other woman has her pelvis broken in four places and his little sister was killed instantly. His mom likely will not be walking for at least six months and will require at least one more surgery to repair damaged muscles and ligaments. Jayden was not at all hurt (physically) but he was only three feet away as his mom got pinned by a van against another car and his sister died. He is actually doing well (all things considered) since the funeral last week, but I would love to flood him with some happy mail. Please send only happy, fun, kid-friendly cards. Nothing Halloween or pumpkin related. And please, no mention of the accident, his sister or that you are sorry for what happened. Just fun, happy, kid-friendly cards that say you wanted to say "hi" and send him a card. Thank you.

BTW - Sarah (Jayden's mom) is the sister of my dear daughter-in-law. Your prayers are also appreciated.

Thank you Lorraine! I'd love to FLOOD him with cards. So far, not too many people seem interested in doing this. Please pass the word to anyone, or any group who might want to share in this mission. Thanks again.

I got my MMTPT Teapot Tuesday card made for Jayden today - but I need to take a photo before I mail it. It should get posted out tomorrow, though. What a tragic accident.

Oh my!!! Keep those cards coming!!! I'm just so amazed at the outpouring of those on SCS - but I guess I should not be. LOL You guys have always had hearts of gold. I'm gathering (not opening) all the cards and packages, etc and will give them to Sarah and Jayden on Thanksgiving when they come to dinner. Seriously... keep them coming. Pass this on to every card making group you know. I hope to flood him with cards. And THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU for all you've already sent. May God bless you and yours for your generosity.

Hello everyone. I am hoping to flood a little boy with some cards. If you, and anyone or any group you know, would be willing to send some fun cards to 6 year old boy, I would really appreciate it. The young man's name is Jayden. He is six years old, in the first grade (reads very well) and loves anything to do with trucks or race cars. They can be sent to my address and I will see that he gets them.

Cards for Jayden
c/o Louise DuMont
24 Welch Road
Ringwood, NJ 07456

Background - A few weeks ago Jayden (age 6), his mom (Sarah), and his little sister (Ella, Age 2 1/2) went to a pumpkin farm with his mom's friend and her two kids (also ages 6 & 2 1/2). To make a long story short, there was a serious accident. Jayden's mom has a broken femur and numerous other injuries to her legs, the other woman has her pelvis broken in four places and his little sister was killed instantly. His mom likely will not be walking for at least six months and will require at least one more surgery to repair damaged muscles and ligaments. Jayden was not at all hurt (physically) but he was only three feet away as his mom got pinned by a van against another car and his sister died. He is actually doing well (all things considered) since the funeral last week, but I would love to flood him with some happy mail. Please send only happy, fun, kid-friendly cards. Nothing Halloween or pumpkin related. And please, no mention of the accident, his sister or that you are sorry for what happened. Just fun, happy, kid-friendly cards that say you wanted to say "hi" and send him a card. Thank you.

BTW - Sarah (Jayden's mom) is the sister of my dear daughter-in-law. Your prayers are also appreciated.

Thank you everyone for the many, many cards, books, stickers etc that you sent. I will be giving Jayden the whole bunch of cards on Thanksgiving - and I'm going to close this thread. I can't even begin to tell you how much I appreciate this - and how much I'm sure Jayden and his mom will appreciate the love you've shown them. Blessings to you all.

Louise .... thank you for the opportunity you've given us to bring some cheer and encouragement to this family. It would be lovely if you could post an update after Jayden has received his cards.


Happy Thanksgiving!

Of course. I should have thought of that. I will post right after Thanksgiving to let you know how much he enjoyed them - because I KNOW he will. Thank you.

It's been a while since I've been on the forums so I'm a little behind. I work in finance and with year-end closing upon us, my work life is CRAZY. Sarah was not up to spending Thanksgiving with us, so I was not able to watch Jayden open the many cards and gifts you all sent. But I was able to get a package with all the items in the mail to her and here is her response.

Note From Sarah
Words cannot describe how thankful I am for all you have done and continue to do for Gregg, Jayden & I. I feel so blessed to be a part of your life. Your thoughtfulness and generosity is truly appreciated. I'm sorry for not sending this sooner. I got to open all of the cards with Jayden... he LOVED all of the wonderful cards people sent. They were SO creative and thoughtful (I have to show them to you the next time we get together). PLEASE tell everyone who made the cards, sent books, stickers, gift cards, etc how much we appreciate them. Wishing you and your family a very Merry Christmas. Hope to see you soon. Always thinking of you... miss you and love you!
Sarah xoxoxo

Just thought that some of might like to know that Sarah is engaged and will be getting married in May. Her fiance stuck close by her through the tragic loss of her daughter and has been great in helping Jayden through this as well. Please continue to keep them in your prayers. Thank you all.
