Default FEBRUARY 2019 Mission - CARDS FOR A CAUSE

2019 Cards For A Cause
FEBRUARY MISSION
Stamp from the Heart!


ORGANIZATION BEING FEATURED:
Tri-County Humane Society


DESCRIPTION:
The Tri-County Humane Society (TCHS) operates an independent non-profit animal shelter in St. Cloud, MN. The TCHS has been providing quality services to the people and animals of Central Minnesota since 1974.

Some of our services include care for homeless animals, pet adoption, pet lost and found, and humane education. We also provide knowledgeable answers to questions regarding pet care, behavior and many other animal related issues.


CONTACT PERSON:
Teresa - va.sunshine

Referred by:
Karen Howard


TYPE OF CARDS REQUESTED:
blank pet themed thank you cards with envelopes please


SPECIAL RESTRICTIONS:
NO wild animal themed cards
Please leave the inside of the pet themed cards blank for the humane society to write a personal thank you message. If you are using dark colors of card stock please consider adding a white lining on the inside of the card.
Please provide envelopes, especially if cards are other than the standard A2 size card (4 1/4 x 5 1/2). If you wish to include forever stamps that would be wonderful but is not required.

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...
Karen Howard
9088 Country Avenue
Monticello, MN 55362

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
For a little added inspiration you can join us in playing along with the OPTIONAL challenge each month. This is only optional and you do not have to play along to send your cards to the featured cause for the month. We always take cards no matter if you play along in the challenge or not. This months challenge is to be inspired by the color/mood board, see first post below. Be sure to use the keyword C4AC so that we can check out your card and comment! To see this gallery C4AC click here.

-----------------------------------------------------------------
Another exciting announcement, we now have a badge for you to proudly display on your blog; here is the link.
Sticky:Cards For A Cause Blog Badge
Also, we have a section now for on going Cards For A Cause, these are organizations that take cards all year. If after your monthly generous giving you have others, go here..thank you so much for all you do!

Fellow SCSer's, thank you for spreading your SCS love!
Once you have mailed them come back to us here

I had fun making 5 cat/dog themed cards last evening. I will be working on more today. I found I have more dog and cat stamps than I thought I did.

I understand the no wild animal request - what about horses, chickens/roosters, and/or bunnies? Unlike many of you, I'm finding that I have limited cat or dog stamps.

Bunnies, hamsters, birds, etc are great. Preferably no horses, chickens or roosters as they don’t have the space to take these in. Thank you!

Thank you! After I asked the question, I went online and saw what the facility usually has - I'll go digging in my stamps again. I don't have many pet stamps at all. I appreciate the clarification.

They are able to use sympathy cards too! If you don’t have pet themed stamps a general thank you or sympathy is always great! They love cards with the rainbow bridge poem on them. They are always excited and grateful to get handmade cards from SCS.

24 cards/envelopes are coming your way. No stamping (I don't have any cat or dog stamps - much to my surprise). I used pet themed paper. Should arrive by Monday. All are blank as I didn't have any phrases to pair with the front.
