FRIENDS 4 KINDNESS CARD DRIVE
This is the 1st Annual Friends4Kindness Card Drive! The purpose of this card drive is to collect our goal of 200 handmade cards to donate to Friends4Kindness so they are able to mail these cards to children that have signed up through their Unbirthday Parties. Nicole Callander started Friends4Kindness with the goal of reaching as many kids as possible and let them know they matter. They want to advocate for inclusiveness and acceptance. They want to show the world that kids with disabilities and have amazing abilities. Finally, they want to build up the confidence and self worth in a child that is/has been bullied or perhaps to shy to make connections with friends!
You can read more about them on their website at https://friends4kindness.ca/
Here is a bit more info about the card drive:
Every year, Friends4Kindness sends those who sign up for their birthday card list, a couple of birthday cards! Many of these kids and individuals often have trouble making friends or are incredibly shy, so we can bring a smile to their faces and brighten their day simply by sharing our love of card making. A simple gesture to let them know that they are not forgotten and that they matter. We all love making cards and what’s better than knowing that our creations can bring a smile to others, right?
While we try to focus on handmade cards, we accept all cards in case card making isn't your thing.
A team of helpful volunteers are all ready to assist us in filling out each card and mailing it to those on the list.
Our goal for this card drive is 200 handmade cards!
This card drive will be run from August 1 - 31, 2019. We need to receive your cards by August 31, 2019.
Please make the cards Birthday themed only.
Cards can have a stamped message inside, but otherwise can be left blank. Please do not sign them.
Include an envelope for each card and please don’t seal the envelope.
Please stick to standard size A2 or 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″ card as this will help us in packing more efficiently.
Please don’t use any pins or glitter (for safety reasons).
This is totally optional, but if you’d like to include $2 or $3 to help with shipping, it’ll be much appreciated. Friends4Kindness covers the shipping cost themselves and postage prices have increased, so any donation toward shipping would help tremendously.
In each package, PLEASE include THIS SUBMISSION FORM.
Cards/Packages can be sent directly to:
