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.

Mother's Day delivery

Just a quick note to thank everyone who sent in Mother's Day cards. For those kids who are too sick to make a card themselves (or for those who aren't crafty) it's wonderful to have handmade cards to choose from! Mother's Day is a very popular event at the childrens hospitals and it feels great to help make the days just a little more special for the kids and their moms.

Thanks to all of you, a package of 227 cards (over 50 Mother's Day cards plus birthday and blank cards) has been taken to BC Childrens Hospital. I'm particularly pleased that this batch of cards included some for infants as well as a selection for teenagers.

The next delivery will be in mid-May and will include Father's Day cards. Thank you to those of you who have already sent in Father's Day cards - this is another popular event at the hospital and it's great that we will be able to support the kids with such great choices!

That's it for now. Keep crafting and always remember that whether you send a single card or a box full, you are truly bringing smiles to the faces of these kids!

Smiles & thanks, Shelley
