October 2019 Mission - Cards For A Cause
 
2019 Cards For A Cause
OCTOBER MISSION
Stamp from the Heart!

ORGANIZATION BEING FEATURED: South Carolina Department of Juvenile Justice

DESCRIPTION:

The South Carolina Department of Juvenile Justice provides cards for kids ages 12 to 17 to send to their families/friends. This started as a small “mission” for Sue but has become so large that she has had to focus all her energy providing them cards. She could certainly use some help providing for their needs.


TYPE OF CARDS REQUESTED:
Thinking of you, Miss you, Birthday, Congratulations, Thank You, See you soon, Get well, encouragement, Christian, and cards without an occasion listed on the front. In other words – anything and everything! Stamp some on the inside for youth who don’t know quite what to say and leave some blank for those kids who are more expressive. They love a variety!! They have just recently requested sympathy, Get Well, and masculine cards specifically.


SPECIAL RESTRICTIONS:
Please include envelopes. No metal or sharp objects (such as staples, stick pins, etc)


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...


Sue Craig
9421 Yvonne Dr.
North Royalton, OH 44133
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
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 colors of Fall since we have entered the season....think leaves and pumpkins and candy corn and apples…all those things of Fall that we love!!!


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 and let us know.

What a great cause! Count me in!

ScrapperBecca 10-08-2019 08:14 AM

I am back from travelling and excited to see this month's cause. I also enjoy knowing that it's a cause one of our own members is actively involved with. Somehow, that makes it feel more personal to me too! Looking forward to creating some new cards to send out, and I have a paper pack in mind to use for more masculine cards. :)

Bless you,
Sue

More cards have arrived today from more amazing women! Big thank yous go to, Lucy Williams, Ann Pfluger and Marilyn Wuttke for their beautiful cards. Thank you ladies, these cards will truly make a difference in these kid's lives. Knowing people they don't know, care, is an amazing thing to them.
Bless you,
Sue

I have my cards packaged and ready to mail on Tues.

Here is a photo of some of the cards--

STYXROCKSME 10-13-2019 01:50 PM

I'll work on some. I'm in SC, how come the cards go to Ohio?
I can't send til later in month, is that okay?

bensarmom 10-13-2019 02:29 PM

The cards come here because they wanted them sorted and counted. They don't have the staff there to do it. So I'm sorting and counting them then sending them to SCJJS.
This is a ministry that was started by a gal who works there and myself. So there isn't a position for the addition things needed for this kind of card drive. They are so grateful for all the cards they receive.
Blessings,
Sue

STYXROCKSME 10-13-2019 02:52 PM

Sue,
Thanks for explaining.

thescpells 10-15-2019 01:52 PM

Will be sending cards in the next few days
 
Sue, I’m actually about 25 minutes from DJJ, but based on your previous comment it sounds like the cards really need to come to you first - correct?

Thank you for choosing this group! I collected cards from the ladies in my stamp club and will send them all together.

You can send them to SCJJC if you like and PM me how many you sent and I'll include that in our total.

bensarmom 10-16-2019 09:33 AM

More beautiful cards arrived this morning. Big thank yous go to Carol Spaziano and Deborah Brousseau. Thank you for using your gifts and talents to encourage these kids. Your cards are so appreciated!
Blessings,
Sue

bensarmom 10-16-2019 09:35 AM

If anyone else wants to send cards directly to South Carolina Juvenile Justice System you may. I just need a Private Message letting me know how many you are sending. We want to keep track of the total cards donated from all of your wonderful, talented ladies.
Thank you,
Sue
