Help us reach our goal of making 500 cards for community members in need of some good cheer. Cards will be distributed to residents in assisted living facilities for Valentines Day.

Guidelines for makeing great cards! 

  1. You can use any type of paper andyour card can be any size
  2. You do NOT need to put your card in an envelope UNLESS - you use glitter! Then please put it into an envelope so we can keep track of your glitter
  3. Take your time - quality is better than quantity. Think of someone you love and make a card that you would be proud to give to them. You don't have to be an artist or make something fancy. 
  4. Keep your message simple and gender nuetral - this makes it easier for distributing them. 
  5. Your card can also be a friendly card to just say "hello" - you don't have to stick to the valentine theme.
