Welcome to Three New Hospitals, One New Volunteer and OWH-ers Everywhere!

We are very happy and excited to announce we have a new volunteer who will be collecting and distributing your cards to the children in Nationwide Children's Hospital in Columbus, OH. Welcome Sybrina King! You can see her smiling face over there on the right and if you click on her picture, you will go to her new blog celebrating her new life in retirement. Here is the newest address you can send your handmade cards to:

SAS4Kids, c/o Sybrina King
11600 Huntington Way NW
Pickerington, OH 43147

We have more exciting news to announce! Janet Kay Bailey, our Illinois volunteer, has also added two more hospitals full of special kids who will receive your cards. The new facilities are Clearbrook in Arlington Heights, IL. and Streamwood Behavorial Healthcare System in Streamwood, IL. Janet and her family have a close connection to both of these facilities and your cards will help cheer kids with special needs in both of these facilities. How great is that?

Here is a reminder of Janet's address:

SAS4Kids c/o Janet Kay Bailey
11722 Parkway Drive Apt 6
Roscoe, IL 61073

I also wanted to extend a special welcome to all the card makers who have contacted us after Operation Write Home announced they were closing down. We are happy you have found us and our kids are going to love receiving your donated cards!

Can't believe summer is almost over! It is time to start making fall and winter holiday cards so all the kids in the 15 hospitals we now serve will receive one of each, and can also pick out some to send to special people they are missing on those holidays. We can always use thank you cards and some birthday cards and any day cheerful cards as well.

Thanks to all of you for your handmade cards and support.

Sending smiles 4 our kids, Karen
