I just learned about the Caring Hearts Card Drive from the talented Jennifer McGuire. It’s a program to provide handmade holiday cards to residents of nursing homes. What a great idea! I’m going to send at least a dozen.
My mom spent time in an Alzheimer’s assisted living nursing home, and I know that a handmade card would have really brightened her day. Even though she could no longer participate in the crafts that she loved, she never lost her appreciation for them.
Here’s a challenge to all my crafting friends – please consider donating a card or two as well! It’s a great way to try a new technique, and spread some holiday cheer. Click here for mailing instructions, etc.
There’s still time to get your cards to the program coordinators by 11/27!
