These Holiday Birthdays More Special!
Woud you like to send just one card a month to help someone
Would you like the wonderful feeling of knowing you
have helped brighten
Then ShareaCard is for you!
This years Holiday
brought record numbers once again!! We were
hoping for 18,500 cards and we received 19,130
THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!
Here at the ShareaCard office, the preparations
for the Holiday Card Project begin around the end of August.
I start assembling the boxes that I
predict will be needed to hold all the cards that are anticipated to
come in. This year, I was fortunate enough to have some space in the
family room of my other house to spread everything out.
I keep a spread sheet of all the participants
and the contacts we have over the years and I construct a "recruitment
letter" asking them to get involved once again. I print out those
letters (I think this year it was over 300!) along with enclosing a
brochure for the ones who aren't familiar with the workings of ShareaCard and get the envelopes all filled, addressed, stamped and
ready to be mailed.
Sometimes, the press call me to do interviews.
Other times, I reach out to them. As much as I hate that part....I suck
it up and do what I have to do in the best interest of ShareaCard :)
helped me sort the cards!
As you can see, we had ornaments,
hats, socks, gloves, candy cane mice, necklaces, handmade gift
packets, candy gifts and tons of cards!
But most of all...THANK YOU ALL ! If you didn't send cards, we wouldn't have this wonderful project!!
