Hi... welcome to the Caring Hearts Card Drive Blog Hop.   You should have come from Dawn's blog... so welcome.  The drive organised by Vera is to collect Thanksgiving/Christmas/Holiday Cards for people in nursing homes /care centres and assisted living.  Vera needs to have received the cards by November 15th to ensure distribution to the various centres/homes.

This is such a worthwhile cause and Vera doesn't mind who makes the cards - it can be scout groups, children, church groups etc.

Just remember -
  • All cards need to have a message in it.  Please also sign your name and where you are from.  On the card envelope, write your name on the top left corner.  Also, please don't seal the envelope, as we will address the card when we deliver them to the nursing homes. Due to privacy policy, the nursing homes or the care center cannot share the resident's name to public.
  • Please stick to just cards. 
  • All cards need to be mailed to the following address:
                        Vera Yates
                 
       Caring Hearts Card Drive
                 
       P.O Box 16321
                 
       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 us 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.

I hope you get a chance to participate in this wonderful card drive.  Hop on over to Giovana's next. Thanks so much for hopping by.
