Extra Cards and Want to Make a Difference?
If you have extra cards and want to make a difference you can. I have just begun to supply an independent care to nursing needed facility with cards. Many of the residents cannot get out to get cards but still would like to give them to family and friends. I'm also adding The Cleveland Ronald McDonald House who provide cards for families in the facility to use, Splitcoaststampers Cards For A Cause, and Hospice of St Francis who can use birthday cards.
If you are interested in donating some cards, pm me for my addy.
Thank you so much for considering this.

I'd be happy to donate some. When do they have to be in? I am busy with company right now. Let me know where to send them. Thanks

I just sent some off to the troops, but please keep this thread (?) open, as I had a hard time finding someone to send them off to, believe it or not. a nursing home is a great idea. Please send me the addr. anyway, I will keep it on hand. I thought that SCS had a "cards for causes" thing started a while back, a different place each month, but all I could find was the troops, which is a great cause also. Gin

I'll be happy to donate some also. I'll pm you.

I know my mother sent some cards off to you and two of my sisters have some to also send. Hoping you are getting lots of cards for this project. Hugs, Kheila

Thank you

I would love to send some, please give me your address...

bensarmom 12-04-2011 03:50 PM

Hi Ladies,
I just heard that the card bin is empty so if you can help refill it I'd truly appreciate it and so would the seniors who live there.

clembcke 12-04-2011 05:17 PM

are you still sending cards to the nursing homes? If so, I would be more than happy to send you some, just send me your address. Thanks

Sarge 12-04-2011 07:37 PM

I will also be happy to send you some cards, just send me an address. Kay

Twinshappy 03-24-2012 09:05 PM

Sue send me a PM with the addy to send them to. What type of cards are they looking for? Birthday, thinking of you, anything special? Thanks!

bensarmom 04-12-2012 08:18 PM

Cards are still needed. So if anyone has cards that need a home, I'd truly be grateful and so would the residents. They can't believe they are getting cards from people they don't even know so they can use them. God is great the way He works, isn't He?

Scrappin Nona 06-21-2012 10:43 AM

Do you need more cards PM me if you do

bensarmom 06-26-2012 06:50 AM

Ladies, I never dreamed when I started this two years ago that I'd have such generous giving ladies. To date, almost 1,000 cards have been donated! Praise God for such an unbelievable response!

debsee 07-07-2012 12:07 PM

Are you still collecting cards? If so let me know what types you are in need of and I
can probably send you some in the near future. Send me address where to mail them also
Love helping out the kids and elderly. Thanks, Deb Pollock.....Wisconsin

muscrat 08-19-2012 04:30 PM

I have a stack of cards sitting here and I was wondering what to do with them. I didn't make them all, some I got in swaps. Do you still need cards, and if so send me an address. Also let me know what kind of cards are ok. I have the whole range: thank you, thinking of you, happy birthday, sympathy, get well, wedding, friendship, encouragement, holiday, etc....

bensarmom 08-19-2012 05:21 PM

Muscrat, I'll private message you.

bensarmom 10-02-2012 09:06 PM

Still active in this. Thank you to all the ladies who have taken the time to send cards to me. Bless you.

muscrat 10-03-2012 05:13 AM

My supply is beginning to replenish! I will let you know if I get another pile of them, and I will try to remember to stamp inside the cards too. I know I leave them blank a lot of time so they can be personalized as needed.

bensarmom 10-03-2012 02:28 PM

muscrat, thanks so much for doing this.

Do you take holiday cards, like Halloween? I have a beauty I got in a swap, but I don't send Halloween cards. It's a little late to ask for this year, but just checking so I know the types of cards you are looking for overall.

bensarmom 10-05-2012 09:32 AM

They can use all holidays except Halloween. thanks for asking.

bensarmom 10-05-2012 03:55 PM

Stacy, thank you for the Gorgeous card you sent! I got them yesterday. Wowzers they are beautiful!
Blessings to you,

muscrat 12-28-2012 05:54 PM

I am getting another stash of cards! Do you mind doing the inside if they are blank? Or maybe they will like blank so they can write in them....

bensarmom 12-28-2012 06:06 PM

Kathy, I don't mind at all! I'm grateful for any cards I get. Thank you so much.

muscrat 12-29-2012 08:07 AM

Ok, I'll get these ready and mailed out on the 2nd. (If I'm not knee deep in snow! Just shoveled three inches....)

STYXROCKSME 12-29-2012 11:53 AM

There is a nursing/rehab place in my small town. So many of the residents have no family so no one visits and no mail. I'd love to take some cards over.

bensarmom 12-29-2012 02:48 PM

Thanks Kathy. We too are getting more snow.

muscrat 12-29-2012 02:57 PM

You're welcome. We have about six inches now. DS came and plowed the driveway. I wanted to go to a LSS today because she just got some cheery lynn dies in, but I wasn't running out in this weather.

muscrat 01-13-2013 04:48 PM

Funny you should bump tonight. I am going up to the PO tomorrow morning to try and get a mailer to get these out soon!

bensarmom 01-13-2013 06:04 PM

Kathy, you are so sweet. Thank you so much.

sewlady1977 02-27-2013 11:42 AM

I've got so many cards, I love to make them, but I'm really running out of things to do with them. I don't know what pm means, I'm really not tech savvy, so is there any other way I could get your addy to send some cards to you?

muscrat 02-27-2013 11:55 AM

PM is Private Message. You just click on the little envelope at the top right of your screen, choose "send a new message" on the left hand side about half way down, type in "bensarmom" in the recipient's box, and type your message and submit! If you receive a reply, you will see a little number next to that envelope and you can click on it to go in and read it in your inbox!

STYXROCKSME 04-08-2013 10:05 PM

I would take cards to the nursing home/rehab place in my town. If anyone has extra cards, envelopes not needed. There are several residents w/o family so they don't receive mail or visitors. You can PM me and I can give you my address.

muscrat 08-15-2013 05:31 AM

....sending cards next week.

bensarmom 09-16-2013 12:24 PM

Hi Ladies,
I continue to supply one assisted living facility with cards as well as Operation Write Home. I was just asked if I could supply cards for a nursing home where they can't get out to get them. I said yes and am in the process of making cards for all of them. If anyone wants to donate cards or card fronts that would be a blessing to all of these elderly people. PM me for my address. Thank you.
