SAS4Kids Canada


I have been working behind the scenes to coordinate the hookup between SendaSmile4Kids (Canada) and Crop Circles in Peterborough.  Last week it happened. 

If any of you have cards to donate you can mail them to the address in the body of this blog. There is an American chapter if you wish to send the cards there.

This is from the Crop Circles blog (why reword a good post!!)

"Crafters, Our exciting news this week is that we are going to be participating in the Send A Smile 4 Kids Canada program.Maria has been working behind the scenes coordinating this with Shelley from British Columbia and Susie from Sick Kids Hospital.We wanted to align with the crafters out West as they have established guidelines and have been doing this for some time very successfully.

Why did we select Sick Kids as our pilot project?
The answer is that Sick Kids Children's Hospital cares for the sickest of children from all over the world and that is where we thought we would start.We are hoping to expand this to other local hospitals with the need of some luv from all  of you.Maria and I met last week to establish what our next steps would be so here is the help we need from all of you.

  • We are asking any and all of you to contact your fellow card makers, friends,local stores  and let them know what we are doing and see if they are interested in helping send smiles.
  • Please look at the guidelines under the tab marked Send A Smile 4 Kids on the blog page.
  • If you have a blog please share this with others or if you have a cardmaking group please encourage them to make an extra card or to go through current stash inventory.
  • Send them to the below address or drop them into the store.We will arrange to get them to the hospital.
We are looking for Halloween,Thanksgiving to ship out the first week in October,2012 so get out your pumpkin stamps etc to use up some of your stash.We will always be shipping the Themed cards one month in advance so the nurses and admin staff can divide them up.How fun is this.
We will take any cards you can provide of general purpose ones as well.

We will be posting and thanking all who contribute on this blog as the cards come in.I can't wait to see what we can accomplish together.Please make sure you autograph your artwork on the back of your card or package so we know who to properly thank and acknowledge.

If you have any questions please contact the store by email or telephone at 705-201-1097

Hugs to you all and my thanks for taking a wee peak'
We can all make a differance in someone's life with random acts of kindness.

I've checked out the store website and the cards being made are wonderful - the kids are going to be thrilled!
