Default OCTOBER 2012 MISSION ~ CARDS FOR A CAUSE

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

ORGANIZATION BEING FEATURED:

UT MD Anderson Cancer Center

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and SCS has always done a wonderful job of promoting and supporting this annual event. In conjuction with the Hope You Can Cling To October challenges which are organized by the SCS Community Manager, Lydia (understandblue), we are also featuring the MD Anderson Cancer Center as our October destination.


CONTACT PERSON:
Cindy ~ Fellow SCSer (Mothermark)


REFERRED BY:

Lydia Fiedler

TYPE OF CARDS REQUESTED:

Think Pink! Upbeat ~ Uplifting ~ Encouraging. Our goal this month is to send cards to the MD Anderson Cancer Center to be used to lift the spirits of the breast cancer patients being treated there as well as their families. Last year this was an extremely successful event and the cards are very appreciated! Many stampers received personalized letters from MD Anderson thanking them for their cards! Its a wonderful cause this month.

SPECIAL RESTRICTIONS:

MD Anderson is part of the State of Texas. They ask that no religious sentiments be used on the cards sent to their facility.

ADDITIONAL IMPORTANT INFORMATION:

Please package all cards with an envelope, protected with a clear plastic bag and mail them to the UT MD Anderson Cancer Center to benefit patients being treated for breast cancer and their family. We would like for them to receive cards throughout the month of October, but we understand if you'd like to mail all your cards at once.

Since these cards will be used by visitors for patients the cards should be blank inside.

Please also check out the Hope You Can Cling To Challenge Forum throughout the whole month of October! SCS is offering some amazing and wonderful prizes for participation. Here is a link to the Hope You Can Cling To Challenge Forum! There is alot going on in the month of October! Think Pink!!


MAILING ADDRESS:

The Department of Volunteer Services Unit 115
Attn: Maggi Suttles
UT MD Anderson Cancer Center
1515 Holcombe Boulevard
Houston, TX 77030



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!

Thank YOU!


We Challenge You!
Stamp from the Heart!

I am so glad you posted this challenge. I've been making cards all year and needed to send them somewhere. I sent a big box of cards today.

Mailing a big Flat Rate box of cards and stuff today. Bad me, I didn't count before I sealed up the box. I know there were at least 40...not sure how many more. Had a blast trying to keep up with all of the challenges!
