Sending Happy Mail

Packed with Kindness is our Nonprofit organization that creates cards  with youth for kids in the hospital and senior citizens. Our organization sends cards monthly or when needed to a local hospital, schools or senior citizen homes.

We send our cards to Children's Hospital in Washington DC at the moment. Please contact our organization at packwithkindness@gmail.com to send cards or visit our Kindness Cards Project.

 

Guidelines for cardmaking with Packed with Kindness: 

Supplies:   

1. Create cards with cardstock. Cardstock is preferred due to durability and allows for the cards to last for the receiving child.

2. Use craft supplies such as stickers, crayons, markers, stamps, colored pencils. Please refrain from using glitter.

Card Guidelines:

1. Only write your first name inside of the card for safety reasons. Do not include personal information such as your last name or phone number. You can write the state or organization.

2. Write words of encouragement, focus less on comments related to sickness such as "I Hope you feel better" or "I hope you are okay." We want to focus on encouraging the child, not the illness.

write words such as: You rock, One tough cookie, You inspire me, Smile!   

3. Take your time and draw pictures that either support your encouraging words or pictures that are uplifting such as flowers, rainbows, smiley faces. 

Please Do Not:

*create cards for specific holidays

*write last name, include phone number or email address

*add glitter

*write words related to an specific illness

*write religious comments such as "God Bless, The lord is with you, He is a healer" since we create cards for all nationalities and religions. We respect the request from the hospital.
