Smile AUGUST 2019 Mission - Cards for a Cause

2019 Cards For A Cause
AUGUST MISSION
Stamp from the Heart!

ORGANIZATION BEING FEATURED: Bring Smiles to Seniors, Inc.

DESCRIPTION:
Established in March of 2016, Bring Smiles to Seniors, Inc. is a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that serves senior communities across the country. Our staff consists of volunteers who are dedicated to supporting seniors in nursing homes and assisted & independent living communities, as well as those that are homebound or participating in elderly nutrition programs.


Their mission statement: We strive to connect the circle of life by working with schools, civic organizations and employers to decorate cards for seniors in nursing homes, assisted & independent living communities, and those that are homebound or participating in elderly nutrition programs. Our team hopes to help younger generations understand the importance of remembering the ones who paved the way for us, while reminding seniors that they are cared for and not forgotten.

They have delivered over 100,000 cards since they started in 2016! Ron began this organization when he visited his grandmother and noticed that many of the residents didn’t receive visitors, gifts, or cards. His heart was touched by those forgotten by their family and society. This is a great opportunity for us to not only help him with his vision.

CONTACT PERSON:

TYPE OF CARDS REQUESTED:
General thinking of you are the types of cards they use most but will also use Birthday and holidays.
SPECIAL RESTRICTIONS:
Envelopes are appreciated if possible. Please keep that in mind when it comes to layers and/or embellishments. Religious and non religious cards are both welcome.

GUIDELINES:
Please keep in mind, we are representing SCS by sending our cards each month. Recycling is always good, but only use products on your cards that you would like to receive on cards. Also, our card donations are not tax deductible and it is not required. Please do not ask for a receipt. There have been groups that will send thank you's but the "referred by" person keeps us informed and passes on the thank you's. Most of these organizations are volunteers and spend countless hours helping others, let's help make their jobs easier and bless them in helping others.

MAILING ADDRESS:
Please mail cards to...

For a little added inspiration you can join us in playing along with the
OPTIONAL challenge each month. This is only optional and you do not have to play along to send your cards to the featured cause for the month. We always take cards no matter if you play along in the challenge or not.


This months challenge is to be inspired by the words SMILES and HAPPY. Let's do everything we can to lift the spirits of those who lived long lives making others happy!
