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

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: 


  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!
