SAS4Kids is Growing Again- Now Serving 13 Children's Hospitals!

Karen here, and I have a rare Saturday off here on the challenge side because we have new challenges on the 1st and 3rd Saturdays, and announce our winners on the 2nd and 4th Saturdays. If there is a 5th Saturday like this month, I get a day off and you get an extra week to participate in our challenge (scroll down to find the current Anything Goes 4 Kids challenge.) But I am always blogging on my personal blog here, so if you want new card ideas almost daily, come visit and become a follower and/or subscriber if you are not already one.

I just wanted to share with you on this challenge side of our SAS4Kids blog our awesome news:

2015 is going to be a great year at SAS4Kids! I am excited to share with you that we have just added another volunteer who will be collecting your cards for three more children’s hospitals!  That brings the total of hospitals we serve up to 13! The new hospitals are in California and our new volunteer is NanaConnie. Many of you will know the name as she is on many design teams and has been in our top three several times with her gorgeous cards. NanaConnie has graciously volunteered to receive your boxes of cards, sort and label them and bring to three children’s hospitals close to her home in California. 

To see pictures of our wonderful volunteers who accept your cards (besides me), click on over to the home page of this blog. NanaConnie is the cute one in the pix she provided:)

Here is the address to send your cards to: NanaConnie Chapman, P.O. Box 80083, Bakersfield CA 93380.

For the time being, please send all your boxes of cards to Janet Bailey’s address and to NanaConnie’s address so they can build up a supply and start bringing boxes to their kids in the new hospitals. Of course, we will accept boxes at the other locations as well, but the new sites need them more than we do in Wisconsin and Iowa.

I want to get these sites going as quickly as possible, so will be stopping the search for new volunteers at this time. However, if you have been in contact with me already and hear back from the children’s hospital near you that they would like to receive our cards, we will be happy to add you as a volunteer site.

Our current needs are listed in the blog post here, but we accept cards for any holiday or occasion as long as they are appropriate for kids and follow our guidelines under the tab above.

Please join me in welcoming both Janet and NanaConnie and thanking them for helping us cheer more kids and their families. They are waiting for your boxes and cards, so can you make and send some cards to them soon?

Stamping smiles 4 our kids, Karen
