I lost my mother-in-law to breast cancer earlier this year and this organization has a special place in my heart. CardMaker magazine has a wonderful feature each month- it selects an organization and encourages its readers to make cards and donate them. Last month for example over 1200 the cards went to a seniors residence.
This months readers are asked to donate their hand made cards to Necessities Bag a support resource for mastectomy patients.
The theme is “Elegance”
Deadline: Cards must be received by Sept. 12, 2008.
Donate Your Hand Made Cards to “Necessities Bag”
General Guidelines: Each Necessities Bag contains a blank note card so that patients can write to the organization about how they are doing, thus keeping up a dialogue of support. This is where your talents come into play! The handcrafted cards you submit will be tucked into the Necessities bags and used by recovering patients. Please submit feminine cards that are blank inside. Although the pink ribbon is a great symbol, the organization would prefer a wide range of pretty, stylish cards that would be nice for everyday correspondence.
Send all card submissions to:
