Default JULY MISSION ~ CARDS FOR A CAUSE

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


ORGANIZATION BEING FEATURED:

Card Cupids

This month we are featuring Card Cupids. Card Cupid's mission is to provide Happy Mail Packages and Birthday Bundles to children who are facing difficult challenges in their young lives regardless of their economic background.

This organization will use our handmade cards and combine them with goodies such as stuffed animals and coloring/activity books sending them to children in need for their birthday or during a difficult time such illness or hospitalization. We will help to make sure that each child’s birthday is celebrated and that children in the hospital or facing illness receive happy mail to brighten their day. A child can be referred by a friend, family member, teacher, social worker or other agency.


CONTACT PERSON:
Cindy ~ Mothermark


REFERRED BY:

Karen ~ Karentom

TYPE OF CARDS REQUESTED:

~ Please send only cheerful cards, not get well cards. Below is a list of sentiments that would be perfect.

~ Because the children we send Card Cuddle Care Packages come from all different backgrounds, please do not send religious cards.

~ Envelopes are not required. However, if you do include an envelope, please do not seal them as the parent or guardian may want to preview the cards before giving them to the child.

~ There are no size requirements for the cards

Sentiment suggestions:

Sending Warm Fuzzies
Sending you Hugs
Sending you Smiles
Sending You Happy Thoughts!
Wishing you a day full of smiles!
Sending great big SMILES and warm happy wishes your way in hopes that you have a super terrific day!

Sign your name and where you are from
example:

Card Cupid Karen
from Tennessee

SPECIAL RESTRICTIONS:

Because the children we send Card Cuddle Care Packages come from all different backgrounds, please do not send religious cards.


ADDITIONAL IMPORTANT INFORMATION:

Website Card Cupids
Blog Card Cupids Blog

MAILING ADDRESS:

The cards should be mailed to:

Card Cupids
C/O Stephanie
13203 Overcup Oak Court, Apt 201
Herndon, VA 20171


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

Once you have mailed them come back to us here and let us know they have gone postal! Karen and the Card Cupids are very grateful!!

Wonderful Mission this month! We've been without power () since Friday, 6/29/12, with the storm that went through Ohio, so I'm hoping and praying to get it back today or tomorrow. Will work on cards this weekend.

Thanks!
Maggie

Bless your heart Maggie. I live outside of Nashville and we continue to have record breaking temps. I can't even begin to imagine not having power. Glad you survived!

Okay, trying to clarify. Are we supposed to sign our names in the cards? The instructions above say that we are supposed to. When I checked the website, there is no mention of putting your name in the card. Just want to make sure that I'm sending what is needed. Thanks for the info!

I signed my name:

Kathleen
in Alabama

I think that works for most places except OWH.

Perfect, thanks for the information. I just wasn't sure if the card was supposed to be from me or from the person giving the gift.

Scootsv...
looked at all your cards and they are perfect!
A lot of them are not age or gender specific so they will work for a lot of our requests.
Thanks for sharing!

Sending out 7 cards tomorrow. Not as many as I would have liked, but sometimes life gets in the way of my card making. Thanks for posting another great cause!
