Farewell 2020, Hello 2021!

Happy new year everyone! I hope everyone is greeting the new year from a safe and healthy place. The new year is often a time of change—of resolutions for new habits, cleaning and organizing, learning a new skill, or taking on new challenges.


A significant change around here is our wonderful, long-time director of everything SAS4Kids—Karen H– has decided to step back and pass the torch to a new crew. It’s taken two of us to continue her work and we both hope we live up to her example. She’s been so helpful during the transition and we will always welcome her input and advice. We wish her the best in her future endeavors and will still get to see her lovely cards on our Challenge blog.


We also gained two new design team members and the Challenge Blog is going strong! Please check out the latest entries. Are you interested in entering? Click the “Challenges” tab and give it a try! (Be sure to check the “Challenge Rules” page for important information.)


Although some of our hospitals did not accept cards last year due to COVID-19, SAS4Kids continued to send smiles to hospitalized kids across the country, and even started sending cards to a new-to-us hospital. As my hospital liaison said, “Now, more than ever, your cards have really helped kids stay connected to their families and friends.” Sending smiles to kids is the reason we exist. 


Thank you for checking in and please consider donating, volunteering, or entering our monthly challenges. 


Happy New Year!
