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.

Overflowing hearts

I just have to share the amazing week that I've had! It all started with a trip to the mailbox where I found not 1 but 5 packages of cards! Thank you to Peter G., Diane H., Sandra S, Diane G. and Sandra R. for their generousity in sharing their talent and time. I'm just in love with all of these cards but am especially happy at seeing a bunch of cards for boys. I don't know about you, but I sometimes have a hard time making cards for boys ... but I'm certainly feeling inspired now!

The week just got better when I also received emails from several people who are cleaning out their craft rooms (you mean I'm not the only one who made that New Year's resolution?) and plan to donate large numbers of cards that they've accumulated over their years of crafting. I can't think of a better way to make space than to donate those boxes of cards to the kids!

To finish off, I have to share the following email that was sent by Diane who is the Director of the Child Life department at BC Childrens Hospital:

On behalf of the children, families, and staff at BC Children’s Hospital, thank you so much for yet another donation of beautiful Christmas cards, gift tags, and general-use greeting cards we received on December 9th.  

It is so nice to have such wonderful, one-of-a-kind cards and tags for gift-giving.  Your lovely gifts were used on all of the Christmas packages for patients.

Thank you so much for sharing your time and amazing talent with us.

Wishing you a joyous 2012.

Diane Hart,
Child Life Department

I can only add my own thanks to all of you who support SAS4K - you are all amazing!!!
