Caring Hearts Card Drive Blog Hop



Hello!  You should have arrived from Kryssi's blog.  Sweet Vera is sponsoring this Caring Hearts card drive to collect cards for the elderly living in nursing homes, assisted living, etc.  She'd like us to make cards for Thanksgiving or Christmas.  Here are the details:



This card drive will be going on till mid November. I will need to receive your cards by November 15, 2010 that way we can send the cards out in time for Thanksgiving. Christmas cards will be saved for Christmas delivery.


Please make the cards for either Thanksgiving or 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 also sign your name and where you are from. On the card envelope, write your name on the top left corner. Also, please don't seal the envelope, as we will address the card when we deliver them to the nursing homes. Due to privacy policy, the nursing homes or the care center cannot share the resident's name to the public.


Please stick to just cards.
All cards need to be mailed to the following address:


Vera Yates
Caring Hearts Card Drive
P.O Box 16321
Sugar Land, TX 77496


In each package, PLEASE include a piece of paper with your name, address, email address and how many cards you sent. This helps us in keeping track for prizes! For each card you send, you will get a chance. So the more cards you send, the better your chances.

Vera has lined up oodles of prizes, see here I'll be sending in a packet of Thanksgiving cards, as I know how lonely this holiday can be for those who are not living at home anymore.  Won't you consider doing the same?  Please hop on over to Lorraine's blog now for more inspiration.  And thanks for visiting!

Adding this card to the Simon Says Stamp Challenge: Give Thanks/Thanksgiving.  They are one of Vera's sponsors!
