These are some handmade cards I made for this months featured children of Make a child smile
( the children featured monthly on this website are ones with chronic or life-threatening illnesses. The site tells a brief description of the child & their disease. It also lists their likes and dislikes and their mailing address to send the cards to. Please take a moment & send one of these kids ( or better yet all 3!!) a card / postcard. * Oh, and you do not have to handmake the cards you send if you dont want to, but i'm guessing most on this particular forum would
My daughter (age 10) & I vowed to send these cards out monthly. This is a great project for children to teach them compassion & gratitude while being creative all at once.
I couldn't imagine being a mother to a terminally ill child. Sending these cards out monthly reminds me of how blessed I really am & puts all my silly problems into prospective.
Oh, & I made these cards from a brochure I received in the mail from Build-A-Bear. They have the cutest bear pics in their catalog/brochure, but now my figures are sore from all the cutting !
