There are a ton of prizes you could win (see the bottom). We need more cardmakers to send in cards so

She says it much better and there are specific instructions to follow.
Hi Everyone! Welcome to the 10th Annual Caring Hearts Card Drive. WOW!! I can't believe we're hitting our 10th-year mark.
When I started this card drive, I honestly thought it'd be for that year only as I wasn't sure whether I will even have people participating. I was super green and thankful to have Jennifer McGuire's guidance on running a card drive. Your support made this possible for me to keep continue and I am grateful. Many of the places that have been receiving our cards said that receiving the cards is something they're looking forward to every Christmas.
The purpose of our card drive is to collect handmade holiday cards for the elderly that live in nursing homes or live alone.
The holidays are about family, kindness, and joy. During this time many of the elderly living in nursing homes may feel extra lonely or miss their families. We can bring a smile to their faces and brighten their holiday season simply by sharing our love of card making. A simple gesture to let them know that they are not forgotten. That someone is still thinking of them. We all love making cards and what’s better than knowing that our creations can bring a smile to others, right?
Our team of helpful volunteers are all ready to assist us in delivering the cards to selected nursing homes.
For the US, you can mail the cards to:
In each package, PLEASE include THIS 2019 SUBMISSION FORM.
This helps us in keeping track for the prizes!
For each card you send, you will get a chance. So the more cards you send, the better your chances.
The nursing homes that we supported are based on what people suggested to us. If you want your local nursing homes to receive cards from the card drive, please email me the name of the nursing homes and the number of residents, so we can make sure that we send enough cards. The number of nursing homes we support are totally based on how many cards we received. To keep things organized, we assigned the 5 collecting addresses above.
