Hello! I wanted to pop in to share news of the 2019 Caring Hearts Card Drive… and also several Crafty Sales.
First up? The card drive…
Vera Yates runs this amazing card drive… and this is the 10th year! You can find all the full info (and prizes!!!!) HERE on her blog. (I am just sharing the important info here.)
The purpose of our card drive is to collect handmade holiday cards for the elderly that live in nursing homes or live alone.
- This card drive will be run through November 15, 2019. (This is extended!) They need to receive your cards by November 15, 2019.
- Please make the cards for Christmas or Holiday Wishes only.
- All cards need to have a message inside (can be stamped or hand written).
- Sign your name and where you are from inside the card.
- Include an envelope for each card and please don’t seal the envelope.
- Please stick to standard size A2 or 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″ card as this will help us in packing more efficiently.
- Please don’t use any pins or loose glitter (for safety reasons).
- This is totally optional, but if you’d like to include $3 or $5 to help with shipping, it’ll be much appreciated. We cover the shipping cost ourselves & postage prices have increased. Last year we struggle to cover the postage cost, so any donation toward shipping would help us tremendously.
- Vera Yates, 1314 Roy St., Houston, TX 77007
- Cindy Groh, 111 10 Mile Rd NW Sparta, MI 49345
- Deb McCleary, CHCD, PO Box 54, Watsonia, VIC, 3087 Australia
- Caroline Bredeson, 11 Ave. des Oblats, Unit 112, Ottawa, Ontario, K1S 5V8, Canada
- Rita Andrews, 28 West Gissing Rd, Cochrane, Alberta T4C 1L6, Canada
In each package, PLEASE include THIS 2019 SUBMISSION FORM. This helps us in keeping track for prizes! For each card you send, you will get a chance. So the more cards you send, the better your chances.
The nursing homes that we supported are based on what people suggested to us. If you want your local nursing homes to receive cards from the card drive, please email Vera the name of the nursing homes and the number of residents, so we can make sure that we send enough cards. The number of nursing homes we support are totally based on how many cards we received. To keep things organized, we assigned the 5 collecting addresses above.
