Happy Holidays and Update on Current Needs at SAS4Kids

We are always so busy on the challenge side of this blog, that I forget to stop over here to keep visitors to this home page up to date on what is happening away from the challenges.

We continue to be blessed to receive many many lovely cards at both of our U.S. locations. I just delivered a very large box to the Neenah WI Children's Hospital and after they pick out some cards for their kids, they will forward to Milwaukee for the kids down there. I sent all the holiday and Christmas cards we had received and made, so there should be plenty for the kids to receive as well as to pick out to send or give to loved ones. The joy of giving is the best present we can give. I also included birthday, thank you and every day cards.

So THANK YOU  to everyone who has donated cards in the past year. You can see all the activity and gratitude on that page above.

Our next holidays are Valentines and Easter and we start collecting early so we have plenty of time to get them to the hospitals and our kids. In Wisconsin, I have plenty of everyday cards, so if making that type of card, please send to Sarah's address. Keep our older and teenage boys and girls in mind too, because we never seem to get enough of cards for them. In Wisconsin, we could use those older kid cards as well as thank you cards and holiday cards. If we get them early or late, we just save them for the next time we send a box around that holiday.

If you are reading this and live close to a children's hospital in another part of the U.S. (east, west or south) and would like to be a collection site for cards and then get them to the children's hospital, send me an email at khasheck at gmail dot com. You may want to contact the hospital to see if there is an interest there in receiving cards. We are getting enough so I think we could expand to another location.

Wishing you peace and happiness in the new year and beyond from SAS4Kids.
