Christmas Cards for Kids

Every once in a while I come across a story that moves me, many involve children.  This week while browsing Facebook I came across a story about Addy.  Addy, a six year old with a brain atrophy is most likely celebrating her last Christmas this year.  She loves to get cards, especially homemade cards so her family has asked for a "lifetime of Christmas cards" for her.

I found this adorable card in my stash that I think is perfect for Addy. 


Fast forward a few days and I came across Lauren's story.  Lauren is a three years old that is fighting childhood Leukemia.  She is responding to treatment and is currently in remission.  There was a card drive earlier in the year for Lauren that I didn't hear about BUT she loved receiving cards so much that she's asking for Christmas cards :)  I found another penguin card in my stash that I'll be sending off to Lauren.  I hope it makes her smile!


If you'd like to send cards to Addy & Lauren I have posted their addresses are below.  And, if you happen to know of other children, families, causes in which I can send cards, please leave me a comment below.

*Edited to Add...A comment left below linked me to a FB group that gives names and addresses of children to send cards to.  If your looking to brighten a child's day, follow Kare Mail 4 Kids.

Thanks so much for stopping by, have a great weekend!

*Addy and her sisters also just lost their dad unexpectedly :( 
Please include them in Addy's Christmas card.

What a wonderful idea and super fun cards for these girls who need a little extra love! Thanks so much for sharing! I've pinned the top card.
