Heart CLOSED AND COMPLETED -Ronald McDonald-House of the Month Swap!

NEW AND OPEN: Donate all!!! SWAP---Ronald McDonald House of the Month CARD Swap for 2015

** We had a great turn out in 2014 and would love to continue this great cause into 2015 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!

I like your SCS name! It rhymes with mine!!!


I will put you down for monthly cards. I actually meant to start with Feb., but depending on how things fill up, we may have to start with March. We can just extend the swap until March of 2016. WOW! I can't believe we are talking about 2016!!!


Hugs and Blessings,
Jane

Jane--you can add by my list that sympathy cards are OK. I give them separately and the staff use them when needed. I know some houses do not want them, but Tosa is OK.

Jane--if you have a few spare minutes, why don't you send a PM to the ladies from the 2014 swap who were hostesses or donated cards for the houses to let them know you have opened a new swap for 2015? Since that thread as been inactive for a bit, people might not know this one is open.

Just a thought........................

I usually email all the people who are involved in the RMD House project, but haven't done that with this swap! I guess it's been a while since I hosted! LOL!


I'll do that this weekend!

Hi Janie, Ill join and send cards...also, I have never been to the RMD house in MN but would be willing to host a month and drop them off to the MN site. I don't know what kinds of cards they need but will do as Barb does, if there are sympathy cards I will separate them and see if the staff would like to have them on hand,

Thanks, Carol! I will put you down! Which house in MN? There is one in Minneapolis and one in Rochester. I have sent cards to both, and they both will take all kinds of cards! I do send sympathy cards, because although we hate to think about it, some of these kids don't make it, and this give some cards for the staff to give to the family or for other residents to give to the other families. The families that stay there eat together and are sometimes there for several months, so they do get to know each other quite well, and it is like loosing a family member when someone at the house doesn't make it.


Glad to have you as part of the group! I'll put you down for June!


Jane

Hi Jane -

Thanks for the PM!

I can't commit to sending cards every month but will send cards when I can. I'll either send them to you or one of the hostesses.

Thanks -

Happy Monday everyone!
Barb - Cards are heading your way today for March. There might be some designs that I've sent to you in 2014. I usually make batches of cards and pick 2 to send out to various hostesses and charities because I try to mix up the cards so if they look familiars, this is the reason why. I am in the process of making new batches of cards as I am low on stocks!!!

Thanks for your offer to help! No, the cards don't need to be the same, and actually, it's better if they are all different! That way, the houses have more of a variety to use!


I will put you down for donating cards! So excited to have you join us!


Thanks,
Jane

I received a huge package of cards today from someone in Sumner, WA. There is no return name or address and nothing is included in the package.

So--Huge Thanks to whoever sent them!
