I have some random bits of stuff today. πŸ™‚

Card drive updates:

  • We are about to pick winners of the latest round of Cards for Kids. If you sent cards, please make sure you are included HERE. Winners will be picked this week.
  • Instead of having another round of Cards for Kids, we decided to take a break and collect cards for the elderly. But you can still send cards to the kids – I will collect them and send – there just won't be prizes for it.
  • We will start the card drive for the elderly soon. But I need some help! We want to pick 10-15 nursing homes that we can send cards to. I am looking for volunteers to contact one of their local nursing homes and see if they would be interested in getting a box of cards to pass out to their patients. Once it is arranged, I will collect the cards and ship a box to the volunteer who would then deliver it to the home. If you are interested, please email me. Thank you!

And I have some winners to announce! I have emailed you all.

Will you be at CHA?

  • I will be in the Hero Arts booth Saturday and Sunday. (Gotta head home on Monday.)
  • I will be demonstrating in the Hero booh on Saturday from 2-5 and Sunday from 2-5.

 I gotta get some work done. I will be back with more soon. πŸ™‚

  1. I’m going to email you but I have 3 nursing homes (3 different locations, run by the same company, terrific local people who really, really care about the people who live in the homes AND the people who work for them) that would be terrific candidates for some cards and lovin’!

  2. Perhaps a suggestion with the nursing homes – I don’t doubt that they would love to receive cards, but in addition to sending a card for them, what about including a blank general card that they could then give to relatives/friends when needed that could be used for multiple occasions. I know a lot don’t get out to the shops, so don’t have the ability to buy cards, and they may appreciate being able to give them to others.

  3. jennifer . . . i am sure you’ve had a bunch of offers by now, but if you need another volunteer i know that my bible study group would be more than happy to get involved. we have been serving at a soup kitchen to get out into the community and have been looking for another way to reach out. nursing homes have come up in many conversations, so this would fit in great! let me know if you need us! delivering cards would give us the perfect opportunity to show them some love πŸ™‚

  4. I work for a nursing home that has 4 different campuses and I’m sure that if you are still looking for nursing homes to send cards to, ours would love it!

  5. I would love to receive the cards for our Adult Day Center and possibly for our Hospice patients and their families. Thank you for thinking of the elderly!

  6. I do not have any nursing homes to suggest, but I want to applaud you for this project. Many elderly people are lonely and have no one to visit them. I’m sure they would love to get a cheerful card. I find it hard to believe that you have on sponsors who would underwrite such a project. I personally don’t care about the prizes, I’m excited about making the cards, but I suspect that you would get more participants if you had prizes.

  7. I work in a small, rural hospital in Northern Minnesota. We have 2 nursing homes attached to us and an active volunteer program. I know our residents would love the cards. It would be great if some of them were blank so they could use them to send to their families also.
