Project Sunshine and Smiles - June/July 2012

To give you a little background on Project Sunshine and Smiles.....

I started the Project a year ago after
I was in the blog hop for Operation Write Home for the soldiers overseas to send cards HOME to their family.
I had a goal of 100 cards and had collected over 500.
So I decided it would be great to take cards to the kids at the hospital....
So I contacted St. Jude's to see if I could make cards for kids there and deliver them.
So I had a goal of 5,000 and collected over 4,000. I had arranged a trip to Memphis and then they said we were to able to pass out the cards. When I got there they said no I cannot deliver the cards and due to contamination they could not give them to the kids. So they said they would take them to the housing for parents and families and allow them to use the cards.

So I decided to pick a new cause each month to send cards to.
Last month we sent cards to a facebook friend's mom.
I looked back to see what we did in June last month and it was cards for St. Jude's.....

So I have a contact at Akron Children's Hospital
(who will allow the volunteers or myself to deliver the cards :)

The guidelines.......

1. You may make as many or as few cards as you like. You may make duplicates.
2. Please make ONLY get well cards.
3. Please write a small note to the child who is receiving it.
4. Envelopes are not needed
5. The card can be any size, for any age, boy or girl.
6. They can be for infants, toddlers, school age children, teenagers!
7. It does NOT have to be made with the Cricut.
8. Must be from a smoke-free home.
9. Please mail them by July 25, 2012

If you have any questions please email me
with the subject SUNSHINE AND SMILES.
Thank you in advance for helping these children who are in need of a happy card.

Please mail them to:
