Cards for St. Jude
Winter Wonderland is Giving Back in honor of her 2nd blog anniversary by hosting a St. Valentine's Day card drive for the children of St. Jude Hospital. St. Jude's is the only pediatric cancer research center where families never pay for treatment not covered by insurance. No child is ever denied treatment because of the family’s inability to pay. That being said, the children could use a little brightness to their lives, so lets pool our resources and send them some Valentine's Cards!
Here are some of the guidelines from St. Jude hospital ... (St. Jude's has added a few new rules, so please read carefully.)
* Cards need to be a Valentine theme.
* Please make cards that can be used for any gender or age. (This could be a little tricky, but I think you can handle it!) :)
* You can include a message in the inside, but please remember, nothing reminding them of being sick. (Maybe just a Valentine sentiment.) You can also sign your first name but not your last name or where you are from. (St. Jude's rules state that they can't give out the givers info.)
*Winter will be accepting cards for the whole month of January. ( Jan. 1 - Jan. 31) Please don't send any out after that, because she has to send them off so they will get to Tennessee in time for Valentines Day. At the end of the month, Winter will pick random winners for prizes. She will be adding more prizes, often. The more cards you send, the more times your name goes into the drawing. Let your kids get involved too! What a great way to have them learn about Giving Back, right.
* When you send your cards to Winter, please include a piece of paper with your name, address, email address, and the amount of cards you sent. (It will help when she has the drawings.)
