Heart MARCH 2021 MISSION - CARDS FOR A CAUSE

2021 Cards For A Cause
MARCH MISSION
Stamp from the Heart!
ORGANIZATION BEING FEATURED: Wings for LIFE International

DESCRIPTION: (From GreatNonProfits website) -
Mission: Transforming lives to break the generational cycle of incarceration.

Results: Wings For L.I.F.E. - Life-skills Imparted to Families through Education (WFL), a National and State Best Practice Model and has received the following recognition and awards: • National Award of Excellence in Crime Prevention - American Probation & Parole Association • 2017 NM Children’s Law Institute’s Child Welfare and Juvenile Justice Award • 2017 Martin Luther King Jr. Keep the Dream Alive Award • 2017 NM Innovative Behavioral Health Program Star, one of the top 10 Behavioral Health programs in New Mexico

Target demographics: Families of prisoners and returning citizens

Direct beneficiaries per year: Almost 9,000 individuals

Geographic areas served: 20 states, Kenya, Liberia and India

Programs: Weekly educational program called Wings For L.I.F.E. - Life-skills Imparted to Families through Education and prison and community Family Days.

Be sure to check out their website and even find them on Facebook to learn more about their organization. It's amazing!! There is a stigma also affects the family members of those who are incarcerated. While often the family members feel isolated and shame - Wings For LIFE International lets them know they are not alone.

WEBSITE: Wings For LIFE International

TYPE OF CARDS REQUESTED: Wings For LIFE International will accept any and all types of cards! They will use the cards to send to families they assist - both adult and child - as well as volunteers and donors. They have no restrictions at all....they are just excited to receive cards

SPECIAL RESTRICTIONS: Christian themes are welcome and envelopes are appreciated. No restrictions regarding supplies.

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...

Wings For LIFE International
2270 D Wyoming Blvd NE #130
Albuquerque, NM 87112
Attn: Ann Edenfield Sweet, Executive Director/Founder

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Want an extra challenge? Looking for a little extra challenge for this month? How about Spring since we need a bit of Spring after Winter. Anything that reminds you about Spring and new beginnings

Exclamation Address Correction!!!

Can I tell you how many times I have edited the initial post already? Let me tell you how scatter-brained I am tonight....

Of course the spacing was off...so that was 1...and it was still off when I just gave up and said "good enough".... Then I noticed that I didn't change February to March...so that was 2. And now I just had to edit it again...because a HUGE THANK YOU to Lee Mae Elkins....who noticed that I had typed NH instead of NM for the state address...ugh! I'm a mess!! LOL!!!! Thanks for catching that Lee Mae!!!!

I've corrected the address.....if you have already written it down please change NH to NM....sort of a different part of the country. LOL!!!

I have so been there! I needed that laugh this morning! I didn't mean to take February off but the month just slipped away. I do have my stash of cards built up with all different kinds of cards. So that works out good that they are happy with all sorts of cards. I just got a new stamp set in for Easter so I'll make some of those and get them in the mail sometime next week!!

I have been unable to log in to any of the SplitcoastStamper Cards 4 a Cause pages for nearly a week, finally able to get here tonight (thank goodness!). Has anyone else been having trouble? I was getting a "Page Not Found" on multiple devices, even when trying to pull the URL directly instead of using bookmarks. It happened a few months ago too, does anyone know what causes this to happen?

I am in for this month's cause - not sure what kind of cards I will be sending, but I'll figure it out soon!

I have read in other posts that the new update to the site has broken all the old bookmarks/links and that "Page Not Found" is an indicator of a broken link. It's not clear if this is something that will be fixed in the future or if new links will need to be established. I have been able to access the missions through the Forum. I was able to click on Cards for a Cause on the bottom of the Home Page and it took me directly to the Cards for a Cause Forum. Hope that helps.

Hi All! I've been having some issues signing in too....looks like it's resolved for me though.

Wow - ya'll have been so generous once again!!!

April Cause is coming - I promise...but I'm not sure I will be able to get the post up until Saturday. Please be patient. Church tonight and even now I'm running late. Work has been crazy too. Sorry for the delay. But if you want to check out the cause it is an organization called "Savior Socks". They have more information on the Facebook page than their website (just an FYI). And our extra challenge will be a theme of....ready?...why socks of course! LOL!!! Stay tuned!!!!

Hugs to you all!!!!

Thank you for passing that along. The broken bookmarks issue has happened a couple of times now, and once I am able to reconnect to the page, I usually just make a new bookmark and delete the old one. For a period of time, I couldn't access via searching, bookmark or directly typing in the URL. I did try to follow the path you took to get to the Cards for a Cause Forum, but unfortunately was not successful. I am sure I am just missing seeing something on the page.

I do admit that I find navigating this website to be very difficult; I don't find it particularly user friendly. As a result, I rarely look at any other pages than the C4AC ones. I'd probably have more activity with the other activities/challenges and my gallery if I were able to manage getting around the site more effectively.

Thanks again!
Becca

It is a different nut to crack (navigating the site) and I am still learning stuff myself. I know there have been recent upgrades to the system and have read more in the works, but I doubt it will change the basic format of the site. I would encourage you to do some of the challenges -- they are quite fun and give me tons of ideas for cards. If you can't get to the forum for each challenge from the Home page (they are all listed there by the day of the week they appear), you can find all the challenge links on the first page of the forum: click Forum at the top; scroll down about half way there is a forum titled Splitcoast Challenges and there are subforums under that for each challenge. You should be able to click on the challenge that interests you there. Also, if you're interested you could subscribe to Challenge Chat 2021. Several people link the current challenges for the week there. Unfortunately, that doesn't include the ongoing challenges like C4C. Here's a link to the group (if it works;;fingers crossed):
Challenge Chat & More by ohmypaper! at Splitcoaststampers

Good luck.
