Ink It Forward: Card Care Connection
Hi friends. A couple weeks ago I posted about a new series I was starting called Ink It Forward. I am thrilled to introduce you to the very first organization I am profiling - Card Care Connection!!
Card Care Connection is a nonprofit organization dedicated to providing sympathetic messages and motivational cards to those who face cancer. Their goal is to provide an uplifting message of hope to brighten their day. Through this program, volunteer card makers from all over the United States create handmade paper crafting cards. We collect and distribute these handmade cards free of charge to identified individuals who may benefit from support.
Wow! How fantastic is that! Their web site is chock full of all the information you need. It includes guidelines, packing slips, fliers for groups who want to host a card making party and much more.
I have a complete write up with quotes from the founder and recipients over on the Sweet Stamp Shop blog. Head there for more information, then head to Card Care Connection for all the details. Here is one of many cards I plan to send them.
Here are a few cards and the packing slip. Getting ready to send them!! (Sorry, but I had to black out my address for obvious reasons!)
Now it's your turn. Link up an encouraging card right here and when you're done, pack it up and send it to Card Care Connection:
Card Care Connection
112 Saddlehorn Court
Fenton MO 63026
Before sending them off, please go to their web site for all the details.
