APRIL 2019 Mission - CARDS FOR A CAUSE
 
2019 Cards For A Cause
APRIL MISSION
Stamp from the Heart!


ORGANIZATION BEING FEATURED:
Hospice of St. Francis Melborne, FL

DESCRIPTION:
Hospice of St. Francis provides compassionate care and support to terminally ill patients and their loved ones.


CONTACT PERSON:
Teresa - va.sunshine

Referred by:
Mary Larson, Volunteer Coordinator

TYPE OF CARDS REQUESTED:
Birthday, Patriotic, and Holiday; please include envelopes if possible.

SPECIAL RESTRICTIONS:
Please use white, cream, or light colored card stock on the inside. Blank on the inside, so others can write a message; the light card stock makes it easier for patients to read.


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...

Mary Larson, Volunteer Coordinator
Hospice of St. Francis

6905 N. Wickham Road Suite 403
Melbourne, FL 32940

For a little added inspiration you can join us in playing along with the OPTIONALchallenge 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

hello friends, it is with so many mixed emotions that I inform you all I will need a replacement for cards for a cause. As of last year I am no longer making cards. I lost my father may 7, 2018 and everything changed! I informed lydia last year, but told her I would not leave cards for a cause hanging. so I will continue to post a cause as long as we do not have a replacement. if you are interested please let me know! I will surely help you transition.

I have a blog post here you can read.....

So sorry to hear about the death of your father. Thank you for leading cards for a cause for so many years. I am grateful for all the work you put into it. I really appreciate the opportunity to help out a variety of charities while having fun paper crafting at the same time. Good luck in your new endeavor.

MicheleUke 04-05-2019 06:56 AM

Are the patriotic cards meant to be thank you for your service cards or something else? Can someone give me an idea of what would be appropriate in this situation for the patriotic card request?

va.sunshine 04-05-2019 11:44 AM

yes, that would be great! thank you

I'm in for the charity - hopefully i'll find enough time in between of tending after my recently widowed MIL, who we are enabling to dodge identification as not completely competent - not the best answer but the only one she can afford at this time.

shendrian 04-06-2019 04:43 AM

Please count me in. A wonderful organization. And....I'm so sorry for your loss. Time will heal you.

Thank you for hosting Cards for a Cause. It has been so appreciated, and I love to participate. I wish you Good Luck!

susie718 04-06-2019 06:37 AM

Teresa, I’m so sorry to hear of your father’s passing. Thank you for your efforts to keep Cards for a Cause going because I really appreciate the chance to help out a different charity each month, too. It sounds as though you’ve found a fulfilling direction for your creativity with your rustic warehouse. I wish you the best in your healing and your new business.

fl_beachbum 04-06-2019 10:41 AM

So sorry to hear about your dad. I hope you have friends and loved ones around you to help you continue to heal. (hugs)
Thank you for running C4AC, it's been a joy to participate. Prayers for your new venture and for family.

Ldumont999 04-07-2019 08:57 AM

So sorry you will no longer be running this thread. It has blessed me, I'm sure, more than the cards themselves could have ever blessed others. I pray that someone can step up to take over this thread. And I am in on April's giving.

Dorie95 04-07-2019 12:30 PM

Therese, thank you for all you've done for us. Personally, I have come to know a number of places that needed our cards and continue to donate to them.

Good luck in you and your husband's business. I wish you success.

cheermom 04-09-2019 09:49 AM

Cards going out this week :).

DLS881 04-09-2019 01:55 PM

Teresa - thanks so much for leading Cards for a Cause. I look forward each month to helping different organizations. My condolences on the loss of your dad.

If you look at the main Cards for a Cause page, there are ongoing card causes listed. Some of them are also featured during specific months.
