2/25/13 - A quote from one of the children's hospitals we serve: "Greetings Karen!  We had much success with the Valentines cards!  Many patients gave one to their nurse or Dr. and some kids picked out multiple cards so they would have something to be delivered to their school friends.  This activity was fun, celebratory, and helped to normalize the child’s healthcare experience.  The gift you give us by providing these individual “works of art” is so fantastic!!!  We have every day, birthday, and the Mother’s Day and Father’s Day cards all sorted and ready to be pulled from our art cabinet as needed.  Thanks to all of the talented, kind people who participate in this project!  Sincerely, Rebecca Krook, CCLS"

Hello Karen!  I wanted to make sure to acknowledge that we received the two boxes of cards yesterday.  As usual, they are stunning!  I had a 12 year old patient, who was here for diabetic care, select some cards that she will be sending to family and friends.  She was so excited to go through them and pick her favorites.  One had a picture of a kitty on it that she said looked just like her kitty at home.  It put such a smile on her face and made all the difference in her mood during her care here!  We will select some more to maintain our supply here at Fox Valley and then get the rest off to Milwaukee.  Thank you and all of the creative people who are part of Send a Smile 4 Kids!!  Sincerely, Rebecca Krook, CCLS
1/19/12 - This is why we do what we do- a quote from our Milwaukee Children's Hospital contact:
What an amazing program. I wanted to mention to you that we have a young teenager who is frequently in the hospital and one of her favorite things is to pick out her favorite cards, your cards, and send them to people who are important to her. She requests them and looks forward to them each time she is here. Your cards are an incredible gift. Thank you.
In Gratitude,
