We have a new project! Are you interested in making Valentine cards for sick children in hospitals this Valentine’s Day? Then, this project is for you!
Here are the instructions:
1. Please avoid any religious messages per hospital policy.
2. Please avoid anything about sickness such as “I’m so sorry you are sick.” or “Get well soon.” A lot of these children have terminal illnesses and they want a card to cheer them up.
3. Keep the messages positive and hope filled!
Be creative! You may use stickers, but please use Valentine stickers and you may use a variety of stickers as the cards will go to little kids all the way up to teens including staff.
Please incude your name on the envelope, so we know who to thank for the cards and put Hope Alive Ministry somewhere on the envelope.
*You may use any paper you have, but we prefer cardstock since it’s better for mailing.
The cards will be sent to the Child Life Department at Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh and Family House Pittsburgh – Shadyside location (Family House is an organization similar to Ronald McDonald House in Pittsburgh, PA) to the patients and staff there.
If you are interested in participating in this project, please use the “Contact Us” tab on this blog to get the address to send the cards to. Our Founder, Bayley Paharik, will receive and then mail out all the cards.
The deadline to send cards is Saturday, February 4 – It’s been updated from the January 27 deadline.
Thank you for all your help!
