This week our destination is West Burlington, Iowa. If you would like a destination for your card this week, how about sending it to Joshua (Not Josh please). Fellow SCSer Mel (MelDeLlanos) brought Joshua to our attention. Joshua is the 5 year old son of a friend of Mel's. Joshua is terminally ill.

Mel would like to flood Joshua's mailbox with Valentine Cards as Joshua is home for the time being and Valentine cards decorating his bedroom right now would give him such pleasure. He is on a very high dosage of pain medicine but is able to interact with his family. The family has decided there will be no more surgeries as the recovery is very hard on him. Joshuah loves Sponge Bob, Legos, and bright happy color!

To read all about little 5 year old Joshua, here is a link to his Caring Bridge Page.

Please do not refer to Joshua as Josh.
Please so not send GET WELL CARDS.

Simply send a little kid a Valentine. I am thinking it would be fun for us all to write in our cards where the Valentine is coming from! For instance:

Happy Valentine's Day Joshua!
From (your name) in (your home town here.)

We are mailing our cards to Joshua in care of Mel. Here is Mel's address:

Joshua Parker
C/O Mel DeLlanos
405 Swan St
West Burlington, IA 52655

Thank you all and thank you from Mel as well.
