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 thank you's

Post updated to include photos!

Lynnette, our Alberta coordinator, has some thank you's to pass on.

Karen from the United Kingdom sent in 3 beautiful cards. A horse one that she created for the the US blog challenge (she's now on their Design Team!). A House Mouse card showing a very tired little mouse who is filled up with watermelon, so cute! And a Christmas card with snow bears on it.
Marcia from Bellevue, WA sent in 39 cards with 19 envelopes for some of the different size cards that she sent.  We have plenty of standard sized envelopes but when you send in odd-size cards, it's really appreciated if you include an envelope. The cards from Marcia are for birthday, spring, mother, thank you and hearts one.  She also included some quilled cards that are especially nice. Lynnette is feeling the incentive to start working on some of her own quilling.
And a mystery package arrived from Manning, Alberta but unfortunately there is no name on the package. So thanks to Anonymous for the 16 birthday, different occasion and Halloween cards. Yay for Facebook! The generous crafter has been identified and it's Julienne Gagne. Thanks Julienne!
Thank you to all our wonderful supporters! Keep crafting and bringing smiles to the faces of the kids!
