Default Where to donate?

Since there hasn't been any updated information on the You Matter Project, I was wondering if anyone else had some references for donations. I have a large envelope almost ready to go.
Thanks!

I'm working with a similar project called Connection For Abused Women & Their Children in Chicago. I've contacted them about receiving donations because I have a bunch that I was going to send to the you matter project too. I reached out to their director and they would love our donations!!! Here is the contact info and the website if you'd like to check it out. Abigail said she can send you an acknowledgement for tax purposes too if you'd like. I reached out to someone here at SCS about how to help promote this like the you matter project too!

I've also offered to host free card making classes for these women & children. Is anyone else from Chicago that would be interested in doing this with me? If they accept the invitation, I/WE would put your purging & de-stashing items to good use with them! - Catherine

Not sure if you saw the update, but Christi did not decide to move so the "You Matter Card Project" is still ongoing

Here to put in a good word for Linda (hotwheels), who is very involved with donating the cards she makes to various places, including the Cole's Foundation, which you can read about by clicking the link in her signature line.

Maybe Linda will say a bit more here about what she will do with your donation and where it will go. And about the mission she has set for herself to use her stamping to help others.

I was going to say that too! She also has an updated wish list in post #185.

Several places are listed in the ONGOING Missions for a Cause thread:

Sticky: ONGOING MISSIONS-CARDS FOR A CAUSE



Also Ronald McDonald House Charities (see link in my signature). Several hostesses also accept supplies, but I'd check with Jane.

Thanks for the updates. Some I had known about, and some I hadn't. Much appreciated.

Linda (hotwheels)- can you use already made card fronts? I am re-organizing my craft room and have some older card fronts (still in good condition but may have brads, etc. and dimensional items that are not suitable for the Cards for A Cause drive).

Could you use these (if you do not like the designs, maybe you could use the images and elements for your own cards)? I would not have envelopes to match and you may need to mount some onto card bases.

And , if so, are you able to receive a large Priority Mail envelope in your mailbox?

Linda, wonderful! Is it still the Hillery St address (I have on file from the Alpha Crew)?

I most likely will not be able to mail until later this month since I am going out of town this week

I am so glad that you can use them- hugs!
