Heart September 2019 Mission - Cards For A Cause

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

ORGANIZATION BEING FEATURED: Adam’s Camp

DESCRIPTION:
Adam’s Camp envisions a world where children and young adults with special needs and their families are empowered with the courage, hope, skills and tools for a lifelong journey of realizing potentials and developing strengths. Adam’s Camp is successful because they meet the needs of the individual and the family in a camp setting, where healing and hope are contagious.

The impact of their programs is clear:

  • Children with developmental delays experience significant developmental gains and have higher quality therapy experiences following camp as a result of the roadmap developed while there
  • Siblings gain new strategies for living with a sibling with special needs while appreciating a quality camp experience themselves
  • Parents gain new strategies to support their child’s development, build a network of resources, and feel renewed from the respite they experience at camp
Adam’s Camp envisions a world where children and young adults with special needs and their families are empowered with the courage, hope, skills and tools for a lifelong journey of realizing potentials and developing strengths.
Website: https://adamscamp.org/

TYPE OF CARDS REQUESTED:
Birthday, Thinking of You, Anniversary, and Just Because.


SPECIAL RESTRICTIONS:
Envelopes are appreciated if possible. No religious themes please.


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...

Adam’s Camp

Attn: Lesley Pollard
6767 South Spruce St., Suite 102
Centennial, CO 80112

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
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 CAMPING – anything from forests and tents and campfires to rivers and horseback riding.

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.

I should have time this month to play along. But like Gina, I'm wondering about the specifics. Should these cards be for kids? Adults? Both?

I would say all of the above. While kids are the focus they also care for the whole family including mom and dad too....so cards for kids and adults would be great....plus thank you cards for those who donate to them are always welcome too.

I am loving the theme this month of camping, the outdoors etc.

I have gotten started and found I have quite a lot of stamps that can be used for this.

Before I started I found I already have previously made 6 cards that can be used for this group.

Today I made 2 cards for the sketch challenge which will be going to this cause. I have stamped up quite a few images and have several card designs ready to put together.

Here are the 2 sketch challenge cards--\SC758, C4AC, Outdoor theme birthday by stampmontana - at Splitcoaststampers

Awesome cause!! I have a friend in Aurora CO, she said several of her clients have been to the camp. She is excited we are using them!! Mine will be out later this month as I just found out tonight that I am having surgery on my hand tomorrow or Friday at the latest. I had a nick in my finger back in April which turned into a staph infection which has now turned into septic arthritis. Doc is putting me in tomorrow morning for tests, pic line and surgery. Luckily, cards are made and hubby will match with envelopes and mail once I get back home.

All of this started from a nick in my skin when I was cutting some ribbon. It is the craziest thing! Take a lesson from me, put a band-aid on any wound before going out in public.

Sharon, how neat that you personally know someone who has a connection to Adam's Camp! I'm praying that your surgery went well and that healing will happen quickly...and that they were able to get all the infection cleared up!

I used to joke with my kids that i don't do camping - my idea of camping is a Black and White TV in the living room.
Or that timeframe after the hurricane when there's no power - or Cable...


But Holiday Inn definition works!

OMG - Here's me hoping all went well for you!
Agreed: Bandaid, triple antibiotic cream and one of those alcohol based sanitizers! There's just way too many germs running rampant in the wild.

Sharon, gads, I just read about your finger. Sending good and healing thoughts to you, who would think that just a nick would produce all that misery.

Thanks for the reminders, it's all too easy to just ignore small things like that. I know I've done it many times.

How is your recovery coming along? I hope you’re healing well.

So sorry to hear about your finger! Hope surgery went well and you are on your way to a complete recovery!

Evening all!! I am alive and well. Still have stitches in the hand that will hopefully come out Friday. It was a little worse than expected as I have osteomyelitis in addition to the septic arthritis. I have a Pic line in and have to go to the hospital everyday at 9am for IV therapy. The fun just never ends. We are starting with a 6 week course (42 days) and reevaluate then. I feel really run down but also some better. I can move my right hand and fingers now!! After therapy and nap tomorrow I will have my hubby help me fill up a box!! Thank you all for thoughts and prayers. This has been a little scary for me and just so out there. I have a weak immune system and have learned my lesson about nicks and band-aids.
