Anything that can make someone feel that they do indeed matter! If you would use it/send it, so can we!

Thinking of You, Birthday, Get Well, Well Wishes, Uplifting/Inspirational, Baby, Seasonal/Holiday, Friendship, Thank You, Funny, I believe in you, etc. Teen cards for teens who have been bullied/abused are definitely in need!!! Many people do not think of this age group!!! Please send envelopes if possible.


SPECIAL RESTRICTIONS:

GUIDELINES:
Please keep in mind, we are representing SCS by sending our cards each month. Recycling is always good, but only use products on your cards that you would like to receive on cards. Also, our card donations are not tax deductible and it is not required. Please do not ask for a receipt. There have been groups that will send thank you's but the "referred by" person keeps us informed and passes on the thank you's. Most of these organizations are volunteers and spend countless hours helping others, lets help make their jobs easier and bless them in helping others.


MAILING ADDRESS:

For a little added inspiration you can join us in playing along with the OPTIONAL challenge each month. This is only optional and you do not have to play along to send your cards to the featured cause for the month. We always take cards no matter if you play along in the challenge or not. This months challenge is to use ink splatter. Be sure to use the keyword C4AC29 so that we can check out your card and comment! To see this months gallery C4AC29 click here.

Another exciting announcement, we now have a badge for you to proudly display on your blog; here is the link.

Also, we have a section now for on going Cards For A Cause, these are organizations that take cards all year. If after your monthly generous giving you have others, go here..thank you so much for all you do!

Fellow SCSer's, thank you for spreading your SCS love! Please feel free to mail your cards all throughout the month of October!

Once you have mailed them come back to us here and let us know they have gone postal!

Christi - Craf-T-Bear... question for you. Does this organization have a blog or facebook page or any other social media connection? I'm making cards to send to you and wanted to let my blog readers know about the organization when I showcase some of the cards I'm making. It helps to get the word out?
Thanks

Cheermom, you have to wait to have your card approved. If you don't have a Fan Club subscription to this site, you have to wait to have your card approved. It should be there soon.

We are in need of "causes" for the remainder of the year, please let me know if you know of an organization that would like to receive cards. We have supported an animal shelter one month out of the year, if anyone knows of an animal shelter we can do that for one month.

Hi! I'm new to this thread. What is the closing date for each months mission? Should the cards be blank on the inside or should there be a message? I am not sure if the volunteers for the organization are going to pick cards and write a message to the recipients or if they are just going to give cards out at random. I want to be as helpful as possible. I don't want to send something that can't be used. Sorry for all of the Newbie questions. LOL Thanks in advance.

ask away, I am here to help. We send blank cards on the inside, you can stamp a sentiment on the inside. The organizations pick a card to send, they write there own message on the inside. We try to get the cards sent by the end of the month, but a few days later is fine too. Please let me know if you have any other questions.

Sally,

We can use any amount you are willing to send given that "The You Matter Project" uses cards year round!

Hi Jaydee,

At this point we do not have a specific website or blog up at this point. Mostly because of the confidential things surrounding those in which we help.... it can be very unsafe for some of them & us if we were to post up actual places or names. However, you can always have folks to look me up & PM me on Facebook. My link is in my siggy below.

Crafty Huggles,
Christi

I want to be as helpful as possible. I don't want to send something that can't be used. Sorry for all of the Newbie questions. LOL Thanks in advance.
Our project uses cards that are blank on the insode and ones that have appropriate sentiments stamped in them. But, they should have room for the gifter to write in as well.
As for deadlines for "The You Matter Project", we need cards year round! So, there is no deadline for when people can send us cards.

Hope that answers your questions.
