Default Cards needed for silent auction benefit

Help Wanted! Cards wanted for silent auction!
On November 19, the not for profit group I am affiliated with is having a benefit - we are calling it "Playlot Palooza"!... The group is a 501c3 organization that is trying to rebuild a playlot in a southside neighborhood of Chicago.
The neighborhood is where I live and raise my kids. Because, we are a neighborhood of city workers and other blue collar workers and not inner city "at risk" individuals... we must raise the funds for the new playlot ourselves.
The park, Mt Greenwood Park, is one of the few parks in the Chicago Park District system that offers a therapeutic recreation program - complete with summer camps and special olympic offerings. The existing playlot is worn down and unsafe and can not meet the needs of the community.
The new park we envision will have a rubberized surface and equipment in which children of all abilities can play together - no longer will wheel chairs get bogged down in the wood chips.
I am looking for card of all types for all occasions - I will bundle the cards received and put the in a decorated tin with dividers - if I receive a bunch of cards I will make more tins.... the tins filled with hand made cards will be offered at the silent auction at the November 19th Playlot Palooza Benefit. Remember - this is a 501c3 organization and if you want to make a donation to receive full tax credit - please contact me and I can accommodate your request....
Thanks in advance for any and all help you can be.. please check out www.mountgreenwoodpark.com for updates and details.

Default How about retired set samples?

As you sort through your samples from retired sets... how 'bout donating your samples / card fronts / etc to the playlot iniative - I'll make them into cards and add them to the mix.
And since it cost you money to make those samples - tell me how much they are worth and I'll give you a letter saying you made the donation of x amount of product and you can get a tax write off - as this is a 501(c)3 organization.
Please help this worthy cause!
Thanks in advance!
Kathleen

When would you like to have these cards and how many do you need? I'm really busy at work right now, but it will slow down my the end of September and I would have time then to make you some.
