Idea CARDS FOR A CAUSE - ONGOING MISSIONS

There are several groups who accept cards year round. They welcome any amount of cards you would like to send. If you have a group or organization you would like to have added, please let me know. Thank you for making a difference in the lives of so many!!!

They take all sorts of cards - anything including Baby (for new moms), Birthday (for volunteers), Thank You (for donors), and praying for you. They have also started a mens ministry so cards for men are appreciated too. Envelopes are appreciated but not required. No restrictions and religious cards welcome.

Cards can be blank on the inside or stamp some on the inside for youth who don’t quite know what to say. They love variety. Please do not use items on cards that are sharp (metal, staples, etc).

"I keep a box of greeting cards supplied for use by the chemotherapy patients at the Tebo Cancer Center in Boulder CO. While being infused, they have several hours in which they could, for example, write thank you notes to those who are helping them through their ordeal. We can use cards of any theme. Envelopes are a bonus! We can also make complete cards out of your spare card fronts. 5-1/2" x 4-1/4" format is preferred. One time when I was refilling the box, I found that a patient had used one to thank US for providing the cards, saying that she actually looked forward to perusing our "mini art gallery". And several times I have been stopped and thanked on my way in or out of the room. Thank you so much for your contributions."

New to this Cards for a Cause--Just to make sure I understand.....
Under the ongoing mission tab, just pick a charity, make cards following their guidelines and send the cards. I am a former Operation Write Home contributor who has been lost as to who/how/where/when to make and donate cards.--- Which means I haven't made cards for several years and I miss it something terrible.
I think I've found the right place?

Hello! Welcome! I'm so glad you found us! I've just recently begun to participate in Cards for a Cause and I love knowing about these wonderful organizations to contribute cards to. As far as I know, you are correct in your description concerning just picking a charity, following the guidelines, and donating your cards.

Thank you ALL SO MUCH for supporting Brighter Birthdays  with your wonderful cards and bag toppers.  (Envelopes are no longer needed.)  We're turning 4 years old on March 1 and by the time this school year ends, we will have served 3000 children.  THANK YOU for your help, from the bottom of my heart.
