JULY 2017 Mission-CARDS FOR A CAUSE
 
2017 Cards For A Cause
JULY MISSION
Stamp from the Heart!



ORGANIZATION BEING FEATURED:
Community Pregnancy Center

Description of Organization:

Mission statement: To strengthen women and families by serving those with pregnancy-related concerns through educational, emotional, spiritual, and material support.

The CPC provides many services to new moms and dads including layette package, formula, diapers, counseling, cribs, car seats, etc. They are there for crisis pregnancy as well as anyone who asks for help.


CONTACT PERSON:
Teresa - va.sunshine

Referred by:
Zella - russnzella

TYPE OF CARDS:
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.

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:
Community Pregnancy Center
180 1st St NW

Barberton, OH 44203


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! Please feel free to mail your cards all throughout the month of June!

Once you have mailed them come back to us here

I don't have many baby themed stamps. Do the Birthday and Thank you cards need to be baby themed in anyway?

I would love to make cards for them.

Been spending the last week at the hospital with hubby. He had pneumonia and a collapsed lung!! Everything looks better today, looking like he's coming home tomorrow or Monday.

We are so grateful for his quick recovery.
:p

Julie Gearinger 07-12-2017 07:44 PM

I did not have time to create all new cards but did send them 18 cards that I had in my "stash"- mostly birthday, a few masculine and thinking of you... Mailed Priority on Tuesday :-)

triasimite 07-13-2017 10:19 AM

I have pulled 10 cards from my stash and they will be mailed tomorrow. It's been a VERY long time since I've participated. Thanks for all you do.

DLS881 07-14-2017 05:21 AM

Cards were mailed.

va.sunshine 07-14-2017 01:49 PM

Sending a dozen today. A few birthday and several thank yous. Surprisingly only one baby themed card. When I saw the challenge, I thought that would be my focus. That's what I get for thinking… lol

Teresa, here's a thought - if you ever are short of an organization, you can designate a month for "any or all on-going causes" .

DLS881 07-23-2017 06:20 AM

Interrupting July to send a thank you to:
Karla and Melissa for the RMD April cause.

va.sunshine 07-23-2017 03:26 PM

that is a great idea...I actually have this year full...YAY! It has been an amazing outpouring of people contacting me with organizations...please keep them coming, we can never have to many!
