Cards for Kids FAQ’s – and prize info

Hello!  Thought I would do a quick update on the Cards for Kids drive.  Here are some answers to some of the FAQs I get.  Some good info here:

  • Turns out the siblings of the ill children are really enjoying the cards.  So, feel free to send cards just for the siblings if you are  short on time.
  • Many people want ideas for cards for kids.  HERE are some excellent ones from Heather.  The more cheerful the cards can be, the better.  Talk about your pets.  Include a silly picture.  Anything.
  • I have added two new children to the card drive. Their stories are unbelievable – check them out here: Karli and Aria.
  • We are extending this next deadline to April 30th.
  • If you are new to the blog, you can find out all the information HERE about the drive.

  1. It’s awesome that you’re doing another round of cards for the drive! Thanks to the generous sponsors who support this project. Hoping that the kids receive a lot of cards! 🙂

  2. Hi Jennifer,
    This is off-topic from your post above regarding the
    Cards for Kids campaign (which I think is awesome, btw),
    but I didn’t know where else to ask this question.

    I am not alone, I know, when I say how inspiring your cards
    and videos are. I love them all! I was wondering if you are
    considering producing card kits, so we can reproduce some of
    the wonderful cards you make.

    Let me say that I’m not a big fan of the typical card
    kit, where you have precut paper and preprinted chipboard pieces
    that you simply adhere to precut card stock. I would rather purchase
    kits that include the stamp set, ink(s), and different paper
    and ribbon choices, along with an instructional sheet (with perhaps
    other card options to use the included supplies for). If you didn’t
    want to include the inks, you could simply make suggestions as to what
    can be used on the card, just in case people already have the inks in
    their stash. This would be a card kit I would buy! I enjoy doing the “work” myself…I just have a hard time coming up with the creative ideas! And I
    always enjoy seeing your card ideas (in fact, I’ve reproduced several at home).

    Anyway, I just wanted to share my thoughts with you, Jennifer. I
    understand you do what I just mentioned above in this blog, with
    your videos, but purchasing a kit where I can make 8-10+ cards and still
    be able to use the reusable supplies to make more cards later on, would be

    Hope all is well. I’m planning on making some cards for your Cards for
    Kids campaign. I love how this is making some kids so happy!

    Take care,

  3. So glad to participate in this…the kids and I sat around yesterday looking for the jokes to include in the cards…Will do a few more cards this time around and will send them off soon…

    Thanks for the opportunity to brighten up a child’s or family’s day…

  4. I have a small group… once mine are done I will add them and get them in the mail… I had my Brownie troop make a bunch… they were so cute personalizing them, adding jokes and flowers…
    such an amazing thing to be a part of!!

  5. Jennifer, thank you so much for putting this together. I have a ton of cards just sitting here. I really need to send a few of them.
    Also, the offer still stands if you are in need of more prizes or sponsors. I co-own Wags ‘n Whiskers rubbers stamps and I also own an on-line stamping store…so what every you need, I would be more than happy to help.

  6. Well….I have been working on mine and hopefully get them mail out tommorrow…thank you Jennifer for all your hard work…..
    NOTE*..I want to also include some money for your expenses with all that mailing….

  7. Too funny! I used jokes/riddles on all my cards in the last batch I sent! I’m in the process of moving and with a 1 year old and 4 year old its proving more challenging than I though! I’m not sure if I’ll get time to make more cards or not! I sure hope I will though!
