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.

Christmas cheer

An extra big thank you to the card crafting group led by Kate at Scrap 'n Stamp for their latest donation of handmade cards. Kate and I spoke a while ago about the types of cards that were most needed and her group sure delivered! They provided cards for boys, cards for teens, cards with humour and moving parts. Every card was different - many in unusual shapes & sizes (remember the cards are being hand-delivered to the kids in the hospitals so you don't have to worry about mailing costs for oversize or extra-heavy cards). I'm so impressed at the variety and quality of the cards this group made during their card-making day! Thank you so very much!!!
Couldn't pick favourites but here is a sample of the cards
Kids love cards that "do stuff" so this wobble card (the bear is
on a wobbly spring!) and waterfall card will be sure-fire hits

This fun card was made by a 4-yr old who was crafting with her grandmother!

Also included in the package was an extra-special group of cards. I've scanned in the note that accompanied the cards and have permission to share it with all of you. Have you ever heard anything sweeter?
Cards created by kids for kids ... aren't they too cute?
Imaging these kids creating their cards to share with children less fortunate than themselves really put me in the Christmas spirit. I hope that it does the same for you!
