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

P.S. They also have a branch in Canada if anyone is from that area. There is a link on the website for going to their area.

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

Wallace, Jennifer <wallacj5@ccf.org>

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....
