Thumbs up -2016-**OPEN FOR CARD DONATION** Ronald McDonald HOUSE of the MONTH SWAP-

NEW AND OPEN: Donate all!!! SWAP---Ronald McDonald House of the Month CARD Swap for 2016

** THIS IS OUR 4th YEAR FOR THIS SWAP!!!!! We had a great turn out in 2015 and would love to continue this great cause into 2016 so PLEASE join us!!! **


This swap is a little different. We have 12 “hostesses” who individually donate to one particular Ronald McDonald house. Each month one RMH house will be in the spotlight. That month all of the cards will be sent to that hostess and she in turn will forward the cards to her house at the end of the month or whenever cards are needed.


This swap works in 2 ways. All 12 hostesses commit to sending 10 cards to each of the other hostesses for thier houses for the entire year. PLUS for other very generous people who like to donate cards but don’t have the time to help one particular house, you can sign-up and send your cards each month to the hostess.


Each month the hostess of the house will request certain cards, i.e. Thank You, Birthday, Thinking of you..…and the individuals signing up will send 10 cards total to that hostess.


*****Since you are donating all cards, and they are going to the same house, they do not have to be the same design. i.e.: you can send 10 different cards made with the same design and color scheme, but again, they don't have to "look" alike OR you can just send 10 totally different cards of the type that they Hostess is requesting.


DETAILS:

1. Cards need to use good quality cardstock- HEAVY WEIGHT--- (so the card can stand alone) and include a minimum of two layers and one embellishment.

2. Each hostess will request the type of cards they would like. For example: Welcome Baby Card / Wedding / Sympathy Card / Birthday / Thinking of You/ Thank you / Missing you. You can also create cards with no sentiments.

3. IF you use colorful cardstock—please line the inside of the card with either white or vanilla paper so the guests can write in them using black/blue pen.

4. If you place a sentiment inside—repeat the sentiment and place on copy paper so that it can be added inside the back of the sleeve-so the individual can see if there is a “saying” on the inside or it is “blank”

5. If you would like to include envelopes and sleeves it would be greatly appreciated - sleeve IS NOT necessary.

6. REMEMBER you are sending 10 cards and will NOT be getting any back, this is a donate-all swap. No need for return postage, packaging, labels or anything.

7. Please send your cards by the 20th of each month so that the cards can be delivered in a reasonable amount of time.


If you don't have a Ronald McDonald House, you can help by participating to send cards to the hostess each month, please remember that this is a wonderful cause. Honor your commitment and send cards to the RMD House Hostess each month!!!


I hope I covered all the information. I am honored to work with so many talented ladies for this swap and for the Ronald McDonald House Project in general! if I am missing something or if you have any questions, please let me know.


Thank you and I hope you can join us!

It is not too late to send to me for March.

But--Jane, why don't you move me to April and that gives us more time to sign people up to send to me and to others. Just a thought.........................

We are still working on getting in the last of the cards for the 2015 swap!


Julie,


You still have almost a month before March cards are due. Hope this helps!


Jane

But--Jane, why don't you move me to April and that gives us more time to sign people up to send to me and to others. Just a thought.........................
I will start the swap for April, if we don't get more people signed up soon! It's filling a lot slower than I thought it would! I know I was a little late starting the thread, but it's been a crazy year-- and it's only FEBRUARY!!!


I can also change the due date on the cards to the end of the month instead of the 20th. It seems that some of us use that date already!!! Yes, I'm talking about me.... LOL!!!

Julie,


It would be wonderful if you hosted a house! We are always looking for new hostesses!!! This is just one way to get people interested in helping out a Ronald McDonald House near them! I don't really get to go to either of the RMD Houses that I donate to. The closest one is an hour away, so I usually mail my cards in.


A really inexpensive way to mail your cards in is by signing up for an account with usps.com You do have to buy your postage on-line, but it is easy! I've been doing it for years! They have what are called Regional Rate boxes. Regional Rate Box A will fit about 100 cards. Regional Rate B box will fit about 200 cards. I just sent in a box to the Madison Ronald McDonald House. The box is about the size of the large flat rate box and it only cost me $5.25 to mail it, which is about what it costs to mail the small flat rate box which only fits about 10 cards!!!! It would cost me more in gas to drive the cards and drop them off!!! Everyone should check out this option! It really saves you money!


So glad to have you as part of our group!!! Which house will you be hosting???

I was sooooo thrilled when she started this! It made it so easy to cut and paste the cards received on to the first post! I think it is GREAT to see how many cards everyone ends up with for their house, too!!! Sometimes, when you get the cards ahead of time, you forget who sent you cards!

I can host a house for April 2016. Ronald McDonald House in Palo Alto, CA

Please minimize the amount of baby/wedding cards as they don't use those much. (Thank you, Thinking of You, Happy Birthday, Miss You...General Cards w/out sentiments are all appreciated) Since Mother's day will be around the corner. I would also like to request some Mother's day cards (Or Thank You Mom card)

Would you be ok with May??? I'm thinking about moving Barb to April, so we have enough time to fill this swap, so she doesn't get shorted cards because we don't have hostesses for about half the months at this point. Julie just joined, and I'm sure she would be fine with moving to June (hopefully!!!


Thanks for agreeing to host a house! I know that you said that you have a lot going on this year, so I really appreciate it!!!


Hugs,
Jane

I don't mind Jane, I'm just happy to do it for you! I will be giving the cards to the Loma Linda RMH in California as we will be visiting family in Aug.

Jane, I'm back in as a hostess, lol. Attended a class yesterday, made some new friends and saw an old friend. Old friend has 3 crates of pre cut kits from her Denami teaching days she wants to donate and new friend has tons of completed cards and card kits she also wants to donate when I told the entire class about our effort here with donating to RMH. So those will come in the next couple of months. I just have to coordinate getting to them again.

My last parcel for my Jan 2016 month should be coming in on Tuesday, March 1st.

So I'll sign back up to be Jan 2017. Don't put up my address yet because I'm moving in the fall.

I'll put your name and house down, and if people get ahead again, you can let them know where to mail cards to!
