CARD MAKING GUIDELINES

  • 95% of our card recipients are adults, 5% are children and teens. We need mostly adult cards.
  • Use cardstock only. Not accepted: cards made on printer paper or construction paper
  • Cards should be folded, not flat
  • Write uplifting messages inside. Click here for examples.
  • Do not write “Get Well Soon” – we will not accept these cards
  • Do not write “Feel Better Soon” – we will not accept these cards.
  • Do not reference any religious words as we do not know the religious beliefs of our card recipients.
  • Sign your first name inside the card so the person receiving the card will know who made it. It is ok to include a business name if your company wishes to do so.
  • Store bought cards are acceptable, however, you must add a personal handwritten message inside, signed by you.
  • We accept Valentine’s Day cards only. We do not accept other holiday cards including Christmas, Easter, Thanksgiving, etc. holiday cards.
  • All donations must come from a smoke-free home.
  • When donating envelopes along with your cards – keep the envelopes separate from the cards. (Keep the stack of cards and stack of envelopes separate.) Do not stuff the cards inside the envelopes. Do not seal the envelopes shut.
  • When donating postage stamps, do not put the stamp on the envelope – keep the stamps separate on the sheet they came on.
