I need your help.
Seriously need it. But it’s for a good reason, I promise.
For the second year, a high school friend of mine has been spearheading a creative volunteer project she’s dubbed Project Paper Hearts. Kelley has a goal of sending 200 handmade cards to the children of St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital this year. Check out her website and photos of some of the valentines.
When I heard of her project, I thought, Hey! We can do this! As a community of people crazy about care packages, I thought we were the perfect fit. And that’s why I need your help.
Here’s what you need to do:
Make the valentine.
Feel free to craft your valentine as creatively as you want. Please remember that the hospital wants you to:
- avoid phrases like “get well soon” or anything that relates to the child’s illness
- avoid religious phrases or imagery
- sign the card only with your first name and without any contact information
Send your card so they are received by Feb. 6.
Mail your valentines to:
Project Paper Hearts
PO Box 331
Annville PA 17003
The valentines will be sent to St. Jude’s on the 7th, so be sure to get them to the mailbox before the 6th.
Make sure that you’ve taken some pictures of your valentines and post them to Twitter, IG, and FB. Use the hashtag #projectpaperheartsJMG so everyone can see the flurry of hearts we’ll be sending to children who need a little cheer!
Let me know if you have any questions. And please feel to share this with as many people as you can. I’d love to send a flood of hearts to St. Jude’s from us!
