I am currently accepting Father's Day, Thank you and encouragement cards. If the cardstock is colored, please put a white piece of paper on the inside. Thank you.

I am doing well on all holiday and blank cards, but I have a continuing need for Thank you cards, fun Thinking of You cards, and You're Great/Awesome-type encouragement cards. Thank you! ~ JenMarch 2024 - Kris Adams, OH/IN/IL

It is with great sadness that I am stepping down from my shipping duties. I wanted to thank all my past donors for your support and all the lovely cards and donations you have sent. Thank you all!

If your favorite volunteer to send cards to is temporarily not accepting cards, there are several of our volunteers who do need your cards. And here are other suggestions as to what you can do with your handmade cards: Many nursing homes are accepting and extremely grateful for handmade cards- signed with a message- for their seniors who are so isolated right now. Check with your local nursing homes or go on line to the Facebook group "Because Kindness" where requests such as these are posted for cards to help spread some cheer. Veteran's Hospitals also use cards – both signed and blank. Check with your local VA to find out their needs. You can also check out this call for cards:

  2. You just need to check the correct page- in this case, the Contact page gives all the addresses. Yes, please send envelopes with your cards.

  3. Hello : Do the requirements from 7-Nov, 9-Nov, 20-Nov still hold good? Can we still make these cards and send to them?

    1. Yes you can. The current needs page is updated every month or two, except for the volunteers who are "on hold" due to Covid-19. When their hospitals begin accepting cards, their needs will be updated as well. Thank you!
