Cards That Care Blog Hop

Hi! T.G.I.F.
 
I'm happy you could drop by today because it's a special and important day! I'm thrilled to be paricipating in the Cards that Care blog hop benefiting the elderly living in nursing homes. If you are hopping from blog to blog, your last stop would have been with Sheri Faypel.
 
 
Here's a card I made for the drive. I'll be working on several more in the next few days and hope you can join me!
 

The next stop along the hop is Becky Williams.



A few important details about the hop:
Your cards will need to be received by November 30, 2011.
  • Please make the cards for Christmas or Holiday Wishes. Anyone can send a card, your children, church group, scout troops, etc.
  • All cards need to have a message in it. Please also sign your name and where you are from. No need to put anything on the front of the envelope. Also, please don’t seal the envelope.
  • All size cards are ok. Just please send them in an envelope.
  • Please stick to just cards.
  • And please don’t use any pins (safety reason).
  • You can mail the cards to either:
Jennifer McGuireP.O. Box 428612
Cincinnati, OH 45242

Vera Yates
P.O Box 17596 Sugar Land, TX 77496
  • In each package, PLEASE include a piece of paper with your name, address, email address and how many cards you sent. This helps us in keeping track for prizes! For each card you send, you will get a chance at a prize. So the more cards you send, the better your chances.
  • A few months ago, I had asked for volunteers to take cards to nursing homes. If you were one who contacted me to let me know your nursing home gave you the “OK” to do this, please email me again. I don’t want to miss anyone!
To thank you for your generosity in supporting this drive, we have PRIZES ready for several winners. Remember… the more cards you send the better your chances. Vera will be updating the prize list as more prizes come in – you can see the prize list HERE. And big thank you to all the fabulous companies who are supporting our card drive by donating awesome prizes! So far we have prizes from:
Hope you have a terrific weekend!

Kathy :)
