Cards Make Everything Better

I love actual cards. Birthday cards, anniversary cards, thank you cards and Father’s Day cards are high on my list. I probably have the last 10 years of cards from my friends, my family and occasionally a cool looking card thanking me for something from a business.

I know. Save a tree.

At 62 I am probably not going to change anytime soon!

I love mail. Well, not junk mail. Just this week I received a card from a friend who was sad to see me leave an organization. Her card sits next to my workspace. It will until another arrives to replace it.

I love giving cards as well. One of my friends got married a few weeks ago, so I went and found a card for him and his wife-to-be.

Just this weekend my wife taught a church class to a group of young girls. They each made a card as a craft.

So, why all this talk about cards?

Cards change lives.

Over the last few months, I have posted a few articles about some young people who were hospitalized. (A couple of them were terminal and have since died.) One of them wanted Halloween cards. Two others wanted Christmas cards. This past week, I posted a story about a youngster who put out 800 cards to fellow students for Valentines.

And people love to give. One of my readers read the story of the young man who wanted Halloween cards and could not wait to go buy one and send it off to the young man who was dying of cancer. (They all got there in time.)

I want to get behind some of those types of projects. So…

Do you know a young person who might be sitting in a hospital bed or is confined to home and would be appreciative of an outpouring of cards?

Maybe it is you who have a child that is going through terrible times. Perhaps it is a neighbor’s child or some from your workplace or church. (Please get their permission if the person is not your child.)

Please let me know by filling out the contact form below. Send me the details, an address and a picture. I will make sure we get a story out there about the person and let our readers take it from there.

I look forward to what our readers will do.

Thanks for your time!
