2018 Cards for Little Hearts Card Drive - Heart Month
Man has made many machines, complex and cunning, but which of them indeed rivals the workings of his heart? ~Pablo Casals
The 2018 Cards for Little Hearts "Heart-Themed" Card Drive is wrapping up. At last count well over 300 cards have been received for this card drive and that number continues to go up as the stragglers (like mine) are received by Christina.
For those of you who do not know what the premise of Cards for Little Hearts is, it is a global card drive, comprised of crafters dedicated to bringing smiles, hope and encouragement to as many children with congenital heart disease as possible by providing heart center staff with handmade cards that are given to patients during their hospitalization.
The current card drive will run from January 1st - February 1st for Heart-Themed (non-Valentine’s Day) "Thinking of You" cards to celebrate the patients during February's Heart Month. Cards will be hand delivered to heart patients at both Nationwide Children's Hospital(in Columbus, Ohio) and the Rainbow Babies & Children’s Hospital, (the Congenital Heart Collaborative in Cleveland, Ohio).
Please read the guideline page located on the Cards for Little Hearts' website for important information prior to making and sending in your cards. You can also find additional helpful resources on the FAQs page and a Sentiments List. There is also a Gallery page if you need some inspiration. If you have any questions about the guidelines or the card drive itself, please contact Christina (HERE) directly, founder of Cards for Little Hearts.
Here are pictures of more cards I made to send in.
Anyone is welcome to help make and send cards – from a young child who loves to doodle to an experienced, acclaimed card maker. Please consider participating. Even one card makes a difference!
