Card Cupids!

Hi Everyone! I wanted to share a blog with an amazing cause!!! I hope that you will all consider sending some cards!!! I copied the wording below from an email I received from a dear friend Heather:

"The organization is called Card Cupids (www.cardcupids.org) and the mission of this group is to send cards and new stuffed animals to needy children. Currently we are gathering cards for a little girl name Kayla and for a little boy named Eddie. The deadline for submitting cards is December 8. We are also working with Legacy Emanuel Children's Hospital in Portland, Oregon. We will be sending cards to Legacy Emanuel on an ongoing basis. They have approximately 200 children in their hospital as inpatients on an ongoing basis. We will be sending holiday themed cards, birthday cards and general well wish cards to the hospital to distribute as they see fit. We will also be sending 10 stuffed animals per month for the hospital to give out to children who may be having an especially difficult time. We will be adding new children to our site as they are nominated (there is information on our site regarding how to nominate a child) so there will be a constant need for cards.

Our site is growing every day and we have some big things in the works including blog hops, weekly challenges and fundraising to cover shipping costs, stuffed animals etc (we are starting an Etsy store where Design Team members will donate items to be sold amongst other things). We have some sponsors in place to provide prizes for challenges and we are adding new sponsors all the time so we will have great things to offer. If you or your readers would be interested in sending cards (or just passing the information along to anyone who might be interested) we would truly appreciate your support."

It amazing how we can all come together and bring smiles to peoples faces!!! I hope that you will share this on your blogs!!!

Thanks for taking the time to read this post, XOXO!
