We are having a new challenge at Paper Creations Ink:
Challenge #12 "Holiday Wishes For Kids"!We have partnered up with SAS4KIDS for this challenge! We would like to share some information about SAS4KIDS with you today...
Send A Smile 4 Kids is a charitable blog created for the purpose of collecting donated handmade cards to be distributed to children while they are inpatient at Children’s Hospitals. Currently SAS4Kids is donating them to the Children’s Hospitals in Neenah and Milwaukee, WI, University of Iowa Children's Hospital, Iowa City, IA, Blank Children's Hospital, Des Moines, IA, Sandford Children's Hospital, Sioux Falls, SD and to the B.C. Children’s Hospital in Vancouver, British Columbia and the Stollery Children’s Hospital in Edmonton , Alberta in Canada. On any given day, there are many children inpatient in these hospitals, so SAS4Kids would love to receive as many cards as you can send to cheer them and their families. The kids may also use your cards as Thank You Notes to the nurses and doctors and to give to parents or relatives on special days like birthdays or Mothers or Fathers Day.At this time SAS4Kids is hoping to receive enough Holiday cards so that every child in these hospitals on or around Christmas will receive a card to cheer them and their families. Please do not make your cards religion specific as the nurses do not always know what religion the child’s family is. Any cheery winter or holiday card would be great!Send a Smile 4 Kids is going to be the featured charity in CardMaker Magazine’s January issue (on stands in December) in their Readers Reach Out section. We are thrilled to be helped by card drives such as this one at Paper Creations Ink and in the Cardmaker Magazine and look forward to receiving your cards to help cheer our kids.The addresses to send your cards to are:SAS4Kids c/o Sarah Taylor, 3419 7th Ave, Sioux City, Iowa 51106 ORSAS4Kids (Canada) c/o Shelley Dureau, 2525 Cable Court, Coquitlam, BC V3H 3G1 Canada ORSAS4Kids (Canada) c/o Lynnette Pinno, Box 1256, Camrose, Alberta T4V 1X2 ORSAS4 Kids c/o Karen Hasheck, 5507 Hickory St, Schofield, WI 54476

Please help us with this great cause by sending your holiday cards or other child friendly cards to the shipper in your area! They would like to have ALL holiday cards by December 1, 2011... so that they will have time to get them distributed to as many of the hospitals as possible! Also they are having the same challenge theme... so be sure to head on over and link up your cards with them, they would LOVE to have you!
Just a quick reminder, you are only limited by your imagination and for this challenge we would really like to see your CARDS; but you are not limited to just cards! You can use any image for this challenge!
This challenge will run until Sunday, November 20, 2011 at 7pm CST. Please be sure to check the challenge tab for ALL the guidelines that we have set for our challenges! And for an added bonus, we will be looking for some works of art to be spotlighted! So be on the lookout, just in case you are picked!
