AUGUST MISSION
Stamp from the Heart!



ORGANIZATION BEING FEATURED:
Meals on Wheels/YWCA Metropolitan Phoenix

Teresa - va.sunshine

Referred by:
Jeannie Thomas - jeannie1862

TYPE OF CARDS:
Anything happy and uplifting, thinking of you, birthday, get well soon. Please include envelopes.

SPECIAL RESTRICTIONS:
NONE

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, lets help make their jobs easier and bless them in helping others.


MAILING ADDRESS:
Jeannie Thomas
2050 W Hazelwood Pkwy
Phoenix, AZ 85015


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 wonderful cause. Count me in.

rainykay 08-02-2017 11:29 AM

Just a quick question. Do they want them blank inside or do we add a simple sentiment?

va.sunshine 08-02-2017 02:55 PM

either way, you can leave them blank or stamp a sentiment. just leave room for them to write a message. thanks!

Thank You everyone and I can't wait to see your creations!

etsdas 08-06-2017 11:41 AM

Could you clarify for me, please? Do these cards go to the volunteers, or will they be given to the recipients of the meals? I am sure to have some DTGD cards available!

Jeannie1862 08-08-2017 02:06 PM

Hi Dorothy! The cards are tucked in with the deliveries of those who are receiving the meals as a little pick me up. They will also receive birthday cards, and get well cards as needed.

Please let me know if you have any other questions.

Thank you! :)

etsdas 08-08-2017 02:31 PM

Thank you! I need to get organized after Dare to Get Dirty, and I should have some cards then.

shendrian 08-26-2017 06:03 AM

24 cards and envelopes were mailed out yesterday. This was a wonderful cause to participate in!

va.sunshine 08-27-2017 05:09 AM

thank you all so much for your continued support, of each other and with c4ac.

I have had my hands full the last 12 twelves days. MIL went into hospital for second time since april(stroke, no paralyze...mental and internal body function) she was put into a nursing home for skilled care, but she needs to stay. we have been trying to get her on medicaid, clean her apartment, before professional cleaners come, take over her bills, we are still working and the only two who can assist....everything was a mess. she wanted to keep her independence and we were trying to let her....no more. this has been the hardest thing we have ever done, it many ways it is worse than death. please keep us in your prayers!

etsdas 08-27-2017 05:27 AM

Teresa. that is so sad to hear. My prayers are with you for the strength that it takes at this time as well as for the ability to make the decisions that face you.

Dorie95 08-27-2017 07:25 AM

Teresa, my heart goes out to you. It is definitely a hard thing to do. Just take care of yourselves, it will get sorted out.

Just seems so overwhelming at the time.

Sending prayers and good thoughts.

bensarmom 08-27-2017 05:43 PM

Teresa,Praying for all of you. We went through this in Feb of this year. Mom is in a nursing home and some days knows it and other days thinks she's at home. It is hard tobe the only ones to help. Hang in there, God's in control.
Hugs,
Sue

Kathi127 08-28-2017 05:17 PM

<div>Teresa, I'm so sorry to hear about your Mom. &nbsp;I'm keeping all of you in my prayers.</div>
