OPEN and RECRUITING for cards-2017-2018 RMcDonald House of the Month Swap
 
NEW AND OPEN: Donate all!!! SWAP---Ronald McDonald House of the Month CARD Swap for 2017-2018

** THIS IS OUR 6th YEAR FOR THIS SWAP!!!!! We had a great turn out in 2016-2017 and would love to continue this great cause into 2017-2018 so PLEASE join us!!! **


This swap is a little different. We have 12 “hostesses” who individually donate to one particular Ronald McDonald house. Each month one RMH house will be in the spotlight. That month all of the cards will be sent to that hostess and she in turn will forward the cards to her house at the end of the month or whenever cards are needed.


This swap works in 2 ways. All 12 hostesses commit to sending 10 cards to each of the other hostesses for their houses for the entire year. PLUS for other very generous people who like to donate cards but don’t have the time to help one particular house, you can sign-up and send your cards each month to the hostess.


Each month the hostess of the house will request certain cards, i.e. Thank You, Birthday, Thinking of you..…and the individuals signing up will send 10 cards total to that hostess.


*****Since you are donating all cards, and they are going to the same house, they do not have to be the same design. i.e.: you can send 10 different cards made with the same design and color scheme, but again, they don't have to "look" alike OR you can just send 10 totally different cards of the type that they Hostess is requesting.


DETAILS:

1. Cards need to use good quality cardstock- HEAVY WEIGHT--- (so the card can stand alone) and include a minimum of two layers and one embellishment.

2. Each hostess will request the type of cards they would like. For example: Welcome Baby Card / Wedding / Sympathy Card / Birthday / Thinking of You/ Thank you / Missing you. You can also create cards with no sentiments.

3. IF you use colorful cardstock—please line the inside of the card with either white or vanilla paper so the guests can write in them using black/blue pen.

4. If you place a sentiment inside—repeat the sentiment and place on copy paper so that it can be added inside the back of the sleeve-so the individual can see if there is a “saying” on the inside or it is “blank”

5. If you would like to include envelopes and sleeves it would be greatly appreciated - but the sleeve IS NOT required.

6. REMEMBER you are sending 10 cards and will NOT be getting any back, this is a donate-all swap. No need for return postage, packaging, labels or anything.

7. Keep a running total of cards you receive and who sent them to you and then let me know when you deliver them to your house, so I can add them to our totals.


If you don't have a Ronald McDonald House, you can help by participating to send cards to the hostess each month, please remember that this is a wonderful cause. Honor your commitment and send cards to the RMD House Hostess each month!!!


I hope I covered all the information. I am honored to work with so many talented ladies for this swap and for the Ronald McDonald House Project in general! if I am missing something or if you have any questions, please let me know.


Thank you and I hope you can join us!

Barb-

I'm working on your cards but they may go out a few days late. My granddaughter, who turns 5 next weekend, just asked me if I could make her a princess for her birthday. Since she'll be moving to Alabama in July and this is the last birthday we'll spend together for a while, I just couldn't turn her down. So I'll be glued to my sewing machine for the next week making the costume, then right back to cards.

I just didn't have it in my to say no to that cute little face I love so much,

ktfabian2 05-05-2017 06:05 PM

I wanted to thank Linda D (Eldee) for the stunning cards that arrived yesterday. I'm going to start arranging the cards by type in a couple of boxes and will have a total count for everyone soon.

Thanks again to everyone who sent cards. I apologize if I missed thanking anyone who send cards,
Tracy

janiekay 05-06-2017 09:00 AM

Please let me know if there are any errors!
 
For some reason, I've been editing and editing, and the format on some of the hostess info has not changed or has changed incorrectly!

UGH!!!!


Let me know if something is not listed right.


We still need some hostesses, so if you know someone who might be interested in hosting for a RMD house near them, ask them to join us!!!

Scrappin Nona 05-06-2017 09:36 AM

Glad to see the new thread up.Will be sending to Barb in a couple of weeks

Hi everyone, glad the swap is going to continue and we have a new thread.

karly1020 05-07-2017 07:13 AM

Thanks for the new thread!

janiekay 05-07-2017 09:02 AM

Thanks for posting everyone!
 
I'm putting an asterisk next to your name as you post here, so I can keep track of everyone as they move over from the other thread.

Hopefully, everyone listed will want to continue with this project! If not, hopefully, we will get some newcomers!

dsp245 05-07-2017 10:18 AM

I am here but I've moved to Chicago area since so will no longer be hosting Palo Alto RMHC. I will give the one in Chicago a call/email on Monday to see if they will be needing cards or not and I can be in charge of that. So until now, please kindly remove me for June but I will be sending cards to hostess

janiekay 05-09-2017 09:30 AM

Sounds good, Pam.

Do you need the info for the Chicago house?

janiekay 05-09-2017 09:36 AM

Need more hostesses!!!! AND moving names around...
 
Since Pam is not going to be a hostess for June, I'm going to move myself to June and July. That way, we have time to fill the spots we have open.

So anyone want to join us and host for a Ronald McDonald House near you???

if you know a contact infor from before that will be great. Otherwise I was just going to call find the # on website

janiekay 05-11-2017 08:09 AM

I would have to look it up.
 
So, I'll leave it to you, Pam! I totally forgot that you moved to Chicago! We'll have to meet in Milwaukee and go to the cheesecake factory! I'm sure barb would meet us there, too! Right, barb??? ;-)

barbaralynn 05-11-2017 08:37 AM

You Bet!

SimpLee Scrapper 05-13-2017 09:09 PM

Count me in for donating cards.. Thanks

mybugandi45 05-14-2017 11:35 AM

Hi ladies
Happy Mum's Day
Hope everyone has a good Sunday.

barbaralynn 05-14-2017 06:37 PM

I received 38 cards from Susan Farrell. Thanks Loads!

janiekay 05-15-2017 07:12 AM

Change to the swap instructions...
 
I made a change to the swap instructions. I just took out the requirement to send the cards by the 20th of the month. I also added the following rule:

7. Keep a running total of cards you receive and who sent them to you and then let me know when you deliver them to your house, so I can add them to our totals.


Hope everyone is ok with this change. We actually implemented it for last years swap, but it was never an official rule.


Let me know if you have any questions!


Jane:D

janiekay 05-15-2017 07:16 AM

We still need 3 hostesses!!!
 
We still need 3 hostesses for this swap.

It really isn't hard. If you are already donating cards, the only difference is that one month, you would not have to send any cards, and instead, everyone sends them to you. When you receive all the cards, you either deliver or mail the cards to the nearest RMD House!


Hope we get some people soon!!!

barbaralynn 05-15-2017 07:46 AM

Sounds good Jane. I will add to my post in the cards that I get.


Do you know the SCS name for Susan?

SimpLee Scrapper 05-15-2017 04:46 PM

I mailed my cards to Barb today. My post office did not recognize the address though. Tracking number is 9505 5154 3346 7135 0415 00. Should arrive Wed. Hopefully you get them

barbaralynn 05-16-2017 06:06 AM

karly1020 05-23-2017 12:37 PM

There's a story with your address and I wish I could totally remember.

The lady at my post office called the lady at your post office a few years back. They discussed the "issue" and it has something to do with your area being a "grid area". And I forgot ... the PO either requires a space where you don't show one or the other way around.

Guess its been too long since I have mailed you something. Once the postal people talked, I was good and never had an issue again, but can't remember which way it was.

karly1020 05-23-2017 12:39 PM

Looking at your address, I think I remember ...
the PO wants a space between the 5 and W ... at least that's what my post office explained to me. :-)

karly1020 05-23-2017 12:39 PM

And I will get cards together soon and get them in the mail to you.

tampatha 05-23-2017 01:40 PM

Can I get in on this?

adopted2 05-23-2017 02:20 PM

Barb, my cards went out to you today. Should be arriving on Friday.

barbaralynn 05-23-2017 04:35 PM

And, some places do not recognize the address when there is a space. It seems that everyone is not the same. Oh well, they do all get to me, even though it seems like the senders have issues at times!
