Hi there friends!!!!! The holidays are approaching and my good friends Vera and Jennifer are back for the 5th annual Caring Hearts Card Drive to collect holiday cards for the elderly that live in nursing homes. Last year they received over 3600 cards.
There are a few ladies helping in collecting the cards. Vera is collecting some and Tina Schrof is working with Jennifer in collecting the cards. And to support the nursing homes that are located in Canada, they have Anita Recksiedler and Caroline Bredeson helping out for our Canada joint venture. Since international shipping is expensive, those of you in Canada can mail your cards to Anita or Caroline and they’ll distribute the cards.
The holidays are about family, kindness, and joy. During this time many of the elderly who lives in nursing homes would really feel the loneliness or missing their family. Wouldn’t it be so awesome if we can bring a smile to their face & brighten their holiday season simply by sharing our love of card making? A simple gesture to let them know that they are not forgotten.
A few important details:
They need to receive your card by November 28, 2014.
Please make the cards for Christmas or Holiday Wishes. Anyone can send a card – your children, church group, scout troops, etc.
All cards need to have a message in it.
Please sign your name and where you are from.
Please include an envelope for each card and please don’t seal the envelope.
Please stick to just cards (standard size A2 or 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″).
Please don’t use any pins for safety reasons.
This is totally optional: If you’d like to include $1 or $2 to help with shipping, it would be much appreciated. We cover the shipping cost ourselves – with no sponsor – so any donation toward shipping would help tremendously. However, this is NOT necessary.
In each package, PLEASE includeTHIS SUBMISSION FORM. This helps us in keeping track for prizes! For each card you send, you will get earn an entry. So the more cards you send, the more entries your earn.
You can mail the cards to any of these addresses:

Card Drive, c/o Tina Schrof, PO Box 75, Springboro, OH 45066
