Happy New Year!!!! So hard to believe it is already 2022!!!

I'm in....starting to some cards today actually. I'm going to make 2 graduation cards (since the ages are 15-25 that they support it would be high school grads) and then 8 Valentine's Day cards. I will get them sent out Monday since I have to go to the post office anyway and that way the Valentine's Day cards will get there on time

Have a fantastic day everyone!!!!

Default MIA

I've been MIA for a few months. It was discovered that my d-i-l has a rare form of cancer. They have two girls ages 12 & 10. Also have a new grandson from one of my other sons. Between going out of state to help my son take care of his girls and my d-i-l, and taking care of my other grandson who lives near us when they needed a break I just haven't the time or the energy to make cards. I'm coming up with a bit of a break now, so maybe I'll be able to get a few cards out to this group. My stash is down to almost nothing so I can't even draw from that. Bless you all who continue to send cards to all these worthy causes.

I mailed 44 cards today. Most were birthday and graduation, but I had a few each of Valentine’s, Easter, Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas.

I checked with Thru Project and they said that in terms of colors for graduation cards, it does not matter, as their youth are all over San Antonio.

I googled some of the 114 high schools in the San Antonio area:

Brackenridge - purple and gold
Brandeis - navy and orange
Brennan - black, white and gold
Central Catholic - navy and white
Clark High - black, silver, white
Harlan High - black, silver, light blue
Highlands - maroon and white
Johnson High - Columbia (a brighter blue), navy and silver
MacArthur - royal blue and white
Marshall - maroon and white
Ronald Reagan High - dark green and grey
San Antonio Christian - maroon, taupe, black
Southwest High - dark green and white
Taft - maroon and blue
Veterans Memorial - red, white and blue
Warren High - purple and silver

Hope that helps.

Hello, first timer here to this challenge. Do we leave the inside of the card blank because people from the selected organization will be filling out the cards to give away to the target group (example, the staff and volunteers at THRU Project will fill out the cards before handing them out to the youth) or are we including our own note inside and signing our name? Thanks!

I don't know about anybody else, but I usually leave the inside blank, unless otherwise noted. Since the cards are going to a variety of people, the sender can write something that is suitable for the recipient.. Hope this helps.
