SAS4Kids is Growing Again!!

Send a Smile 4 Kids is thrilled to announce today that we have added  four more Children's Hospitals where your donated cards can help cheer the kids who are inpatient, AND two more addresses you can choose to send your cards to! Sarah Taylor, who is a member of our design team, has graciously volunteered to accept packages of donated cards and will be delivering them to the children at the following hospitals:

University of Iowa Children's Hospital, Iowa City, Iowa
Blank Children's Hospital, Des Moines, Iowa
Sandford Children's Hospital, Sioux Falls, South Dakota

Next time you have any cards appropriate for children, please send them to this address:

SAS4Kids C/O Sarah Taylor
3419 7th Ave.
Sioux City, Iowa 51106

Send a Smile 4 Kids (Canada) is also growing! They have added another address to mail your cards to and one more hospital as well. Lynette Pinno will be collecting your donated cards and giving them to the children at Stollery Children's Hospital in Edmonton, Alberta.

If you are in Canada or overseas, please send them to either of our Canadian addresses:

SAS4Kids (Canada) c/o Shelley Dureau
2525 Cable Court
Coquitlam, BC
V3H 3G1
Canada  OR

SAS4K (Canada) c/o Lynnette Pinno
Box 1256
Camrose, Alberta
T4V 1X2

Holiday cards can still be sent to the original Wisconsin address. Of course, any of the addresses are fine to send your donated cards to at any time, but we would like to encourage you to help our new hospitals the most right now.

A NOTE TO READERS FROM CARDMAKER MAGAZINE:  SAS4Kids is going to be the featured charitable organization in the Readers Reach Out section of Cardmaker Magazine on stands in December 2011 and we are thrilled to be chosen and to receive your cards! The new addresses and hospitals added here were announced after the deadline for this issue. Your Valentines and other cards can be sent to any of our addresses, but we encourage you to support our newest locations and hospitals.

Right now, we are asking for your winter and holiday cards so that every child in all these hospitals over the holiday season will receive a handmade card to help cheer them and their family. Thank you to all who have donated so far, and we look forward to receiving and distributing your cards to our kids!
