Current Needs and More Kids to Help Smile!

Just wanted to update any readers on this side of the blog with some current needs and some fun news. First of all, we wanted to let you know that our Canadian branch of Send a Smile 4 Kids has expanded again, adding another address and hospital full of kids who could use some of your cards to help cheer them. Click on the link here to read about their great new partnership and expansion.

In the states, we are starting to think about fall and winter holidays. We would love it if we had so many hand made holiday cards, the kids in our Children's Hospitals could each receive one AND pick some to share with family and friends while they are inpatient as well. Giving the kids the chance to give a card to hospital staff to say thank you or send a note to someone they love will help cheer them and their families too.

When you are designing cards to donate, please also keep our older (teenage) girls and boys in mind. We receive the least number of this type of cards, and we get special requests for them from our hospital contacts. Especially boy cards...

We update the challenge side of the blog every week with fun challenges and winner announcements, so come over there to visit and join in the fun anytime. Click on the tabs at the top for the challenges and also all the information you need to donate your cards.

And thank you for visiting our blog and any hand made cards you might be able to send.

Stamping smiles 4 our kids, Karen
