There are many card drives during the holidays and throughout the year.
"HUG A HEART" CARDS DRIVE FOR CHILDREN
Our Blogging Buddy Christina Hor Designs has a very special Mission.
Christina tries to give parents of terminally ill children in the cardiac unit encouragement cards during the long process of procedures and care. If the saddest moment of loss happens, she provides a heartfelt sympathy card to the parents at the loss of their sweet baby or dear child.
Especially during Christmas she strives to deliver holiday cards.
This year, Christina and her children are creating mini 3D Christmas trees for each room in the intensive care and inpatient wings.
Would you like to create a simple, sweetly-appropriate children's Christmas card for those pediatric cardiac patients who will have to spend the holidays in the hospital?
- use kid's friendly images. Kids love anything that is cute, cuddly and funny such as teddy bears, woodland creatures, reindeer, penguins as well snowman. Just to name a few.
- keep it clean with minimum embellishments. However, shaker cards and pop-up cards are welcome. So if you like making one of these cards and you know who you are, please do! But please make sure to use strong adhesive to ensure that none of the shaker/embellishment pieces fall out.
- consider keeping your theme more of a: winter scene, "thinking of you" as well just a general "holiday" theme since not all of them celebrate Christmas. Some celebrate Hanukkah, Bodhi Day, Pancha Ganapati and some just don't celebrate the holiday at all. So avoid using sentiment like "Merry Christmas" on your card.
(only use your own name, of course LOL)
