24-hour service weekend - Shift 6 - Cards and Coffee

Friends,

Welcome to our 4th annual 24 hour service weekend! This year, it will be on Sept 14th and 15th and we will also commemorate the national service day (9/11) through these events. You are welcome to signup for just one or more shifts depending on your availability.

This is shift 6. This shift 6 runs from 2 PM to around 4:30 PM.

 

Spend a couple of hours on a Sunday creating "Happy Mail" (cards and letters) for children all over the United States who have chronic illnesses. There are many individuals to choose from for sending the Happy Mail to. Markers, crafting supplies, and paper will be available, but feel free to bring anything you have, especially stationary. Time: 11 AM to 1 PM (Sunday, 03/24/2013)

 

This location is big. We will be indoors in the large space to the side, away from the main bar and restaurant area. This is where they usually have concerts in the evenings in case you have to ask anybody for directions. Please feel free to contact the hosts with any questions or if you have trouble finding us at the event.

More details:

We get our information from an organization called Hugs and Hope (www.hugsandhope.org). They provide names, contact information, and the list of the children's hobbies and interests at the request of the parents. We will print out the info of a few children whose birthdays are coming up. You can read over them and choose who to write to.


The site recommends we write happy mails instead of "get well" mails "because some of [the] kids will not get well." And we don't want to remind them of it. Write to them about their hobbies, their interests, their siblings.

We will bring a box of crafting supplies for all of us to use. If you have old magazines or ads, please bring them. If you bring arts and crafts tool(s), please keep track of them.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
