When making cards, please keep in mind the following:
Cards should be rectangular or square and be small enough to fit into a sandwich-size plastic bag. Note card size works, too. Card stock or construction paper may be used.
Do not say get well soon. Many of the children are facing terminal or chronic conditions and may not get well, rather they learn to live with their condition.
Do not include any type of religious message.
Our program reaches children of many different religious backgrounds.
Focus on sayings such as:
Sending Smiles (Smiley face theme)
Sending Bear Hugs (bear cut out card)
Thinking of You
Sending Warm Wishes
You’re a Star (shooting stars)
You’re a Champion (sports drawing)
Children love bright, bold and silly cards. Jokes, riddles and funny sayings are great to include.
