Default Need Recipients For Upcoming Months

Hello everyone, we have done an amazing job so far this year! I am in the process of getting a grand total of how many cards we have sent out so far. I need organizations, individuals, church groups, or any other group that would like to be a recipient for Cards For A Cause for the remaining of the year. I am wanting to fill the next half of the year. If you know of someone or you are that someone, contact me so we can get everything lined up. You can use the private message option to contact me. Thank you so much!

Hi Teresa,
I'm usually a lurker. I vow to send cards but do not because I'm not a stamper. I make cards out of store purchased items which doesn't count for this site, correct?
I am emailing a lady who is with a non profit organization. I will contact you after she contacts me.
Thanks,
Cindy

I do not know if you've already donate to this charity or not, but I sometimes send cards to Send a Smile 4 Kids. If you click on the link, they have information about sending cards to them. As a matter of fact, they are looking for help with volunteers to package and send cards to local kid hospitals in your area. (The Midwest is already covered and that's where I am from.) But they are taking in cards. Just wanted to help. Thanks

Hi Teresa, I just got this email from Cleveland Clinic. Could we add them to Cards for a Cause? This could be an ongoing group or one for a month coming up. This is something new they are starting. Just wanted your thoughts on this. Thanks, Sue

Card-Creating Volunteers Needed

Wallace, Jennifer
11:27 AM (13 minutes ago)

to me
Good morning Sue,

My name is Jennifer Wallace. I'm the Volunteer Coordinator with Hospice of Cleveland Clinic. Cleveland Clinic Hospice at Home believes that no one facing a life-limiting illness needs to walk alone. Trained staff and volunteers walk with patients and their families offering support, comfort and care. Our team of experienced professionals work together to provide the very best in medical care, spiritual solace, social support and human companionship.

I’m reaching out to you in hopes that you (or a group you may know) may be willing to volunteer your expertise to support Cleveland Clinic Hospice at Home patients. Cleveland Clinic Hospice presently serves approximately 300 patients and their families in seven counties in Northeast Ohio. Our patients truly do come first at Cleveland Clinic Hospice and we are always looking for innovative ways provide the best support possible. Our team of social workers, nurses, doctors, chaplains, and volunteers provide top notch care and would like to provide even more personalized care by providing home-created holiday, birthday, and most of all sympathy cards to patients and their families. Unfortunately card-making is not where our expertise lies. It truly is a gift and a talent that we recognize and I’m hopeful you’ll consider donating yours to our nonprofit organization.

Would you, as a professional, consider donating cards you’ve created to support patients receiving hospice care? Receiving hand-made creations will brighten the days of individuals who really need a little sunshine.

Thank you for your willingness to consider our request.

Sincerely,


Jennifer

Default Card Recipients for May

Hi Teresa,
Are there any recipients for May yet? I was wondering if I missed the post. I subscribed to your email and saw you were making sympathy cards. Is that for the cards for a cause this month or private cards? Just wondering. Thank you for what you do and your kindness to everyone. I love this site, but am so new, I have lots to learn. God bless your day. Lynn

no, there is not; keep in mind we do not want the recipients to spend lots of shipping cost. A2(4 1/4 x 5 1/2)sized cards is the norm. You can join us here for this month's cause....

Teresa, Cleveland Clinic Hospice would also love to have cards if you still need causes. They need them all year round.

Default Cards for a Cause

Hi!! God bless you for organizing this. So glad I be a part of it. I'm not sure if you know Winter Sims, she blogs at Winter Wonderland and here is a link to a Valentine's Day themed card drive she does every year during the month of January. The cards are donated to local hospitals!

Would you consider suggestions to revisit a group that was already done?

The July15 cause - You Matter Project - touched me in many places ...
if you take votes for redo's - I'd like to nominate that group!
or other similar groups if anyone knows of them !

Hi Teresa! Here's another idea of a Card drive that goes on during the month of October.
Fun Stampers Journey | Be Brave: Create Hope

Perhaps it could work for next year, although they are still accepting Encouragement themed cards thru the end of October 2015 if some want to participate now! Thanks

Not an organization, but a little girl, age 12, who has a rare brain tumor. She had surgery yesterday (maybe day before) but is facing long weeks in the hospital. She could sure use an encouraging card shower!

Miss Bailey Smith, Patient
St. Judes Children's Research Hospital
262 Danny Thomas Place
Mail Stop 108
Memphis, TN 38105

Thank you.

TODAY Baily was moved to Ronald MacDonald house for the duration of her recovery!

Bailey Smith ---room 27
535 Alabama Ave.
Memphis, TN 38105

That'll be SO much better of an environment than in a hospital!

Teresa,

I just came across this non profit - Lasting Hearts

They are asking for cards to be given to mothers who have lost a child thru miscarriage
The link explains it all - the card drive is mentioned at the end of the blog

yes, I have seen it all over IG and blogs, please feel free to send cards if it suits, they are needing them by the middle of February. It would not work for a monthly cause.

would like to get Miami VA Medical Center, Healthcare for Homeless Veterans Program considered - staff is looking for congrats, thank you, birthday, motivational, inspirational type cards...
i think this would be a worthy charity for our efforts, and bonus (at least for me), it's targeting a veterans community.
