Cards for Kids Round FOUR

Hi everyone!

I’m happy to announce that today starts the FOURTH round of the Cards for Kids card drive. We received over 1500 cards for round three! Yay! How awesome is that? Makes my heart happy. Let’s break that this round and do even better! I think we can, don’t you? ;)

Each child has some wonderful prizes associated with them. If you send in cards for a child, you have a chance at winning one of those prizes. For more information on the Cards for Kids card drive itself, click HERE. This round of prizes will be pick from cards sent by November 30th – so get your cards in!

First things first – we want to mention that we are happy to let you know that the sweet boy, Kennedy, is currently in remission! Great news! His mother preferred that Kennedy’s name be removed from the list so that a child and family who needs the support more than Kennedy does right now could be added. She said he enjoyed the cards tremendously. Thoughts and prayers for him to continue improvement in his health are appreciated! :-D

Ok, now onto the wonderful prizes that so many awesome companies and people have donated. :-D
