Send A Smile 4 Kids (Canada) collects and distributes handmade greeting cards to nurses, staff and families to give to hospitalized children on their birthdays and other special dates. Our focus will be on providing happy, upbeat birthday cards and "glad you're going home" cards but we will also make and provide cards for holidays throughout the year.

Cards for Kids launch

I recently saw a posting from an online friend who has started collecting hand-made greeting cards to distribute to her local Children's Hospital. My initial thought was "what a great idea, I'll send her some of my cards". My next thought was "Why spend money on postage to the US when there's a Children's Hospital right here in Vancouver that would likely appreciate cards". So, a quick email to B.C. Children's Hospital and a follow-up telephone conversation and here it is ... "Cards for Kids".

My initial goal is to collect 40 cards to be delivered to the Hospital in February. At this time, the focus is on birthday cards but later in the year I'll also be collecting for major holidays such as Easter, Halloween and Christmas.

I would love if you joined me in this project. Drop an email to and I'll give you the address to send your cards (or if you are in the Lower Mainland I can probably pick them up).

Let's bring some smiles to the faces of kids in need!
