Guest Designing with SAS 4 Kids!

Send A Smile 4 Kids Challenge Blog

I am so honored to be a Guest Designer for Send a Smile 4 Kids! Here is what they are all about:

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 we are donating them to eight children's hospitals in the USA and to several hospitals in Canada through our sister Canadian chapter of SAS4Kids.  On any given day, there are many children inpatient in these hospitals so we 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.  Any cards appropriate for children are welcome including any holiday (not religious specific please except to the Illinois location) and happy any day cards.

This cause means a great deal to me as I have had a niece and nephew who have needed The Stollery Children's Hospital in Edmonton, CANADA. My nephew still frequently visits and works closely with The Stollery to help him with his T1 Diabetes. There are kids in the hospital who cannot leave for special occasions or holidays etc., so it's nice for us to donate cards that THEY can give their parents, caregivers, friends, and nurses/doctors. So, if you ever get a chance, consider donating! Here is the Canadian contact person's info:
