Caring Hearts Card Drive


Hi all. The holiday season is almost here! Its my favourite time of the year. For this coming season I wanted to do something different. I just love and enjoy doing stuffs to give back to society.

A few days back, I was browsing through the net for Card Challenges to participate in and by chance I happen to drop by this wonderful site and it caught my eyes.

Vera Yates (Ling) of  Ling's Design Studio will be organising the annual Caring Hearts Card Drive for the 3rd year! She has been collecting holiday cards for the elderly who are currently residing in nursing homes to bring some love and joy to them.

As we all know, the holiday seasons are about family, kindness, and spreading the joy of goodwill. During this time many of the elderly who lives in nursing homes would really feel the loneliness or missing their family. Wouldn't it be so awesome if we can bring a smile to their face 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.

So, what better way to do your part? Lend in your support in joining Ling reach as many nursing homes as possible and continue to spread more joy.! :)

We all love making cards and what’s better than knowing our creations can bring a smile to others? I hope that many of you will help out in the effort to spread joy and cheer.

There will be others who have agreed to lend their support to Ling in delivering the cards to selected nursing homes.

A few important details:

This card drive will be going on till November 30, 2012. I will need to receive your cards by November 30, 2012.
Please make the cards for 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 sign your name and where you are from.
Please don't seal the envelope.
Please stick to just cards (all size welcome)
And please don't use any pins (safety reason).

You can mail the cards to:
Vera Yates
P.O Box 19158
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 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.

To thank you for your generosity in supporting this drive, Ling have several PRIZES ready for several winners. There will be many winners and remember… the more cards you send the better your chances. :)

Also, please feel free to continue in sharing about this card drive. Your support and kindness is much appreciated. Let's rock this card drive and bring Christmas joy to as many nursing homes as we can!! Thank you and have a blessed day!
