Back in 2010 I started a card drive, called Caring Hearts Card Drive, with the main purpose of collecting handmade card to send to the elderly that lives in nursing home during the holiday season. Many of them don't have visitors and the holiday season can be a lonely time for them. My goal was to brighten their holiday season 1 card at a time.
With the help of my crafting community, we've been able to do this each year. This year mark our 7th year. Last year we collected over 22,000 cards and were able to send the cards to over 120 nursing homes throughout the US, Canada and Australia. This year we also branching out to the UK.
I have received letter from some of the recipient who are just delighted to receive these cards. This is my way to let them k ow that they're. Ot forgotten.
