I would love some Thanksgiving cards and Birthday cards for kids and teens. I will also need Christmas & Season's Greetings cards in a little while. Thank you all so much! ~ Jen

I am currently working with only a few donors as I don't need as many cards as I used to. If you are on my mailing list, I am referring to you. Thank you for your cards and support!

I could use thank you cards, birthday  and no sentiment cards. My hospitals are still accepting and I was  able to get another hospital to accept some thank you cards and birthday cards. Thanks so much! Kris

I could use thank you cards and father's Day cards.  I also could use kids and adult birthday cards and also baby cards.  Thank you.  Angie

News not very great here either as one hospital still not accepting cards and the other is much smaller. I delivered hundreds of general cheer cards last month to them, and have enough Fall and Winter cards for them at this time as well. Nothing needed at this time. Thank you and stay safe. ♥ Dena

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 this 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: 


  1. you given names of people to whom cards can be sent but no addresses.
    do we need to send envelopes as well?

  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!
