"Giving It A Test"

Good Afternoon Everyone! I have a new creation to share with you today and some exciting NEWS! First off we will start with the NEWS... Paper Creations Ink is partnering up with SAS4KIDS and doing a "Holiday Card Drive"! We are both holding the same challenge; but with different sponsors, so that means extra chances to win prizes and help out a good cause at the same time! Paper Creations Ink challenge "Holiday Wishes For Kids Challenge #12" will run until Sunday, November 20, 2011 at 7pm CST and SAS4KIDS "Starting Early - Holiday Wishes 4 our Kids Challenge" will run until Friday, November 18, 2011 at 12pm CST. Now I would like to share some information about SAS4KIDS...

Send A Smile 4 Kids is a charitable blog created for the purpose of collecting donated handmade cards to be distributed to children while they are inpatient at Children’s Hospitals. Currently SAS4Kids is donating them to the Children’s Hospitals in Neenah and Milwaukee, WI, University of Iowa Children's Hospital, Iowa City, IA,  Blank Children's Hospital, Des Moines, IA,  Sandford Children's Hospital, Sioux Falls, SD  and to the B.C. Children’s Hospital in Vancouver, British Columbia and the Stollery Children’s Hospital in Edmonton , Alberta in Canada.   On any given day, there are many children inpatient in these hospitals, so SAS4Kids would love to receive as many cards as you can send to cheer them and their families. The kids may also use your cards as Thank You Notes to the nurses and doctors and to give to parents or relatives on special days like birthdays or Mothers or Fathers Day.
At this time SAS4Kids is hoping to receive enough Holiday cards so that every child in these hospitals on or around Christmas will receive a card to cheer them and their families. Please do not make your cards religion specific as the nurses do not always know what religion the child’s family is.  Any cheery winter or holiday card would be great!  
Send a Smile 4 Kids is going to be the featured charity in CardMaker Magazine’s January issue (on stands in December) in their Readers Reach Out section. We are thrilled to be helped by card drives such as this one at Paper Creations Ink and in the Cardmaker Magazine and look forward to receiving your cards to help cheer our kids. 
The addresses to send your cards to are:
SAS4Kids c/o Sarah Taylor, 3419 7th Ave, Sioux City, Iowa 51106     OR
SAS4Kids (Canada) c/o Shelley Dureau, 2525 Cable Court, Coquitlam, BC V3H 3G1 Canada    OR
SAS4Kids (Canada) c/o Lynnette Pinno, Box 1256, Camrose, Alberta T4V 1X2  OR
SAS4 Kids c/o Karen Hasheck, 5507 Hickory St, Schofield, WI 54476
Please refer to the blog at http://sendasmile4kids.blogspot.com/ for card guidelines and any other details you may need as well as information on the Send a Smile 4 Kids twice monthly challenges. 

I would be very honored if you could help out this wonderful cause by sending your holiday cards or other child friendly cards to the shipper in your area! They would like to have ALL holiday cards by December 1, 2011... so that they will have time to get them distributed to as many of the hospitals as possible!

Hi Sara! Thanks again for your support of SAS4Kids and the card drive and for sharing your card in our challenge. The card is so cute and perfect for a child for the holidays! Love it!

Kristina said...

Aww this is a very worthy cause. Heather at FBD gave 2 free digis if you would make at least 2 cards for Cancer kids. So of course I did, and mailed them to her. Actually I made 2 little journal books for the kids and sent some cards too. So count me in on this. Question, I can use any venders stamps for this?

Kristina said...

Sara, I forgot to tell you I love your card it's totally kid friendly and I love it!

Rhonda Miller said...

Oh my goodness, what a cute card Sara. I just love all the glitter you use on your cards. TFS.

Great card Sara, I love the way you have used a purple base card instead of the conventional white, it looks fab.

Thanks for playing along with us at Crafty Boots Challenge.
