What a wonderful cause for June! Here is the really simple layout I'm using for my cards though will probably try a few different papers. I'm setting myself a goal of making 30 cards for this Cause - will let you know what my total is at the end of the month.

I have eight cards ready for mailing in the morning.

amyk3868 06-05-2012 06:45 PM

I've got a couple of questions after reading the information on the website. Are we supposed to write a note in and/or sign the inside of each card that we make? And are we supposed to include an envelope with each card?

Thanks for the information! Planning to get to work on some cards tonight. :D

RileyRuxpin 06-07-2012 04:06 AM

Nine cards sent postal today! Thanks so much!

Twinshappy 06-07-2012 08:14 PM

Cindy I thought I would check, are birthday cards okay to send?

deeth1 06-08-2012 03:58 PM

Yes, please write a note in the card. Here's a link with info on what they suggest we write inside our cards.

Please sign with only your first name.

Envelopes are not needed.

Thanks for helping the kids!

Hi there!

This particular recipient, it sounds like, is asking for us to send cards and actually personallywrite a note in them. Having said that, I know that all cards that are sent would be used......handmade cards are a valuable commodity to an organization like this and I am sure if you sent your birthday cards, not written in inside, they would find a way to use them and love getting them.

Some organizations we feature, only want blank cards, nothing written inside, this one is a little different in that WE are wishing the recipient of the card well, know what I mean?

I know your birthday cards would be used as any and all cards that have been already sent as a result of us featuring them this month. You can either send them in this month or hang on to them for one of the causes that will be coming up in the months to follow....We feature 12 different places a year!

Thanks very much!!
