Hi all! It's been awhile since I've been able to participate in the Cards for a Cause challenges, having previously been a dedicated participant. My hubby has MS and in the middle of 2016 it became very aggressive. I'm also a BRAK volunteer and have managed to keep up with that, but nothing extra, which makes me very sad. Anyway, hubby seems to be in a reprieve right now, so I'm hoping to get back into the Cause challenges starting in February. Glad to be back!!

I enjoy volunteering with a local organization that sends care packages to our troops throughout the year. United for the Troops likes to add cards to the packages, that send warm thoughts and hope to our men & women who are so far from home.

During the holidays alone they were in need of over 5000 cards. Please consider this organization when you are making cards. The cards can be sent to Margaret Betancourt 278 Route 202, Somers, NY 10589.


If you would like more information about the organization, please visit UnitedfortheTroops.org.

Hi Michelle,

The cards should be signed. They are sent to the troops to help boost morale. They need cards for all seasons but I thought we could start with winter holidays (Christmas, Channukah, general Happy Holidays. Packages mean so much to them but the cards really give them something personal.


Thank you for your interest ��

Is there a new organization for Cards for a Cause or do we just pick one? Just thought I'd ask. Thanks in advance.
