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.

Some sad news

I am sad to have to share that Lynnette, our Alberta coordinator, needs to step down for personal reasons. Lynnette has been a wonderful, enthusiastic supporter of Send A Smile 4 Kids over the last year - she committed a lot of her time and energy to setting up the program for Edmonton Stollery Hospital and she created countless cards to cheer the kids up.

Luckily, Lynnette promises to keep sharing some of her card creations with us! She is a generous supporter of numerous charities and I'm thrilled that she'll continue to be part of SAS4K as a contributor.

Until a new coordinator can be found for Edmonton, I'll collect and deliver the cards (thank goodness for relatively inexpensive Canada Post rates). So please don't stop sharing all your creations! When you send in cards, if you want them to go to Stollery (or BC Childrens) specifically, then just include a note to that effect.

Once again, thank you to Lynnette for all her hard work over the past year. You'll be missed!
