Post Pals

After the previous blog posting about making handmade cards for Cancer Cure, my stamping friend Jo also told me about Post Pals . She makes cards and sends letters and greetings all the time to some of the children, who are very ill and in need of some happy messages.

If anyone of you would like to leave information and a link to your favourite charity that accepts handmade cards, please leave a comment on this message. I'll gather any links and post them in the blog, too.

Handmade Cards for Cancer Care

Just saw something wonderful in the shops . . . Create a Card for Cancer Care campaign for card makers to raise money for Marie Curie Cancer Care. They are providing plastic sleeves for us to make and donate our A6 handmade cards.

You can find out more about it by clicking here.

You can find the plastic sleeves for the campaign at either Marie Curie Cancer Care stores or in stationery stores carrying 'do crafts.' The bags are free.

The deadline for submitting cards is 30 April.

What a great idea; I'm surprised that more charities don't do this. There are a lot of crafters out there who like have a purpose and goal to their stamping activities. I understand that 'do crafts' and the cancer care folks have been doing this for a few years now. Wonderful thing . . . and I hope all my stamping buddies can contribute something.

Hugs, Kathy
