Bring a Smile to a Child Campaign

Just popping in to give you a heads up on a card drive. I will be back soon sharing info on a couple others soon!

My friends at Scrapbook and Cards Today are hosting the “Bring a Smile to a Child” campaign. Each year they send between 500 – 700 cards to children’s hospitals across North America. They do this in partnership with Crafting for a Cure, a not-for-profit charity that goes to hospitals to craft with children and create spaces that helps them escape their troubles if even for a few minutes. Scrapbook and Cards Today is asking their readers to send in cards from all over the world to these children. It’s all about kindness and creating smiles where ever we go.

Interesting in participating? It’s easy. Create an inspirational child-themed card and send it to Scrapbook and Cards Today. They only ask that your card not say “get well soon.” An inspirational quote goes a long way! You can send your card(s) to SCT at:

Scrapbook & Cards Today
“Bring A Smile”
139 Church Street
Markham, Ontario

They will donate these cards to Crafting For a Cure in early November at a special presentation!

For more information (and a peek at a card I did for the campaign – – video coming soon), head HERE.

Thank you!

  1. Wow! Thank you for the opportunity!
    I love making cards for children!
    I see some fun shaker cards coming their way!

  2. There is also Cards for Hospitalized Kids(CFHK), an internationally recognized charitable organization that spreads hope, joy & magic to hospitalized kids across America through uplifting, handmade cards.

    Anyone can get involved with us, from anywhere. Individuals and groups across the United States, and world, donate time and creativity to make handmade cards and send them to us for distribution in hospitals and Ronald McDonald Houses across the nation.

    Over 40,000 kids in hospitals in all 50 states have received cards from us. We believe this is just the beginning. We hope you will get involved and help us brighten the days of as many hospitalized kids as possible.

  3. This is a great cause! I’ll try my best to make and sent some cards in time. Could you give us a deadline date as I’ll have to make international shipping? If it is possible, could you also give us some good quotes for inspiration? Thank you !

  4. i’m actually heading to Canada this weekend for their Thanksgiving. Will drop off a package of cards in the mail when I get there. What a great idea.

  5. Great cause! I just wanted to add that if you are sending from outside Canada, to mark “Canada” on your envelope. Thank you for sharing this!!

  6. I absolutely love to join in this campaign. Do I have to write a message inside of each card I’ll send to SCT? Or I just send finished cards with empty space inside so that kids can use my cards to be sent? Sorry about my question, but I have no clue.

  7. Would love to participate. Looking forward to answers to questions above. Also, do we add message to inside? Add envelopes?

  8. This is just a beautiful suggestion,I definitely want in on this.Thank you for allowing me to be a part of this very sweet gesture .

  9. Thank you Jennifer for sharing this wonderful idea with us. I am sure a lot of wonderful children will receive fun mail soon from all your fabulous followers. <3

  10. Can’t wait to create cards for this great cause. As someone who spends more than her fair share of time in hospitals, I know the power of a card, and please heed the advice about not writing “get well soon”, especially for a child! Jennifer, thank you for your warm heart and for always finding ways to reach out lift others up, you are a special person who has much to offer this world.

    Love and prayers,

  11. Woot, Woot!!! Time to get out all of the stamps that have messages such as – AMAZING, WONDERFUL, YOU ROCK, SUPER KID/STAR, LOVE, HUGS, KISSES, and soooooo much more. Get out all of the happy colors of ink, pens, markers, paint, you name your style. Don’t forget the embellishments – balloons, brads, shinny and bright, fun stuff (would stay away from glitter – some hospitals find glitter to be a hazard around medical equipment). Design in and out of the box, circle, triangle, have fun and send cards!!!! Thank you Jennifer and Scrapbook & Cards Today to allow all of us to bring a smile to many “kiddos”- a huge thank you to all that will send cards, cards and more cards.

  12. This will be so fun!! I rarely get the chance to make cards for kids, so I am looking forward to some of my cutiepatootie stamps being used. Thanks for letting us know, Jennifer! You ROCK!!

  13. My friends have dropped off cards–about 50. It’s rather expensive to send them International to Canada. Is there someone is the States that can receive these?

  14. I volunteer at a senior centre and we do cards there. I am going to talk anout this project to the other ladies from the group. Hope to send lots of cards!

    Love your work and your videos are very good!
