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.
