Cards For Hospitalized Kids Needs Your Help

I received a letter in the mail today from a charity called Cards For Hospitalized Kids that I have been sending cards to for three years.  They are asking if anyone can help as they are running really short on card donations.  They receive a lot of cards for Christmas but no where near enough to fill their needs for the other holidays like Valentine's Day, St Patricks Day, Easter, 4th of July and Halloween.

They are a registered charity that has a excellent reputation and is doing so much to help kids that are seriously ill in the hospital.

If you have any extra cards you can donate or if you can make some holiday cards to send in, I know they and the kids will really appreciate it.   Even if you can only send one card, it's worth it to bring a smile to the face of a little one that is going through such a rough time.

Please click HERE for more info.

Thanks so much,

Hugs,

Dee
