"Hugs & Hope" & "Make a Child Smile": Making Cards for Sick Kids!

We'll be meeting by Regina's Pizzeria. Everybody on the waiting list can attend "Making Cards for Sick Kids" tommorrw! We'll be making cards for children with illnesses and their siblings and sending them out to the families directly. I will supply some materials, but I'm asking all volunteers to bring at least one arts & crafts item e.g., markers, construction paper, stickers, stamps, crayons, etc.

We'll be working alongside two other Meetup groups, The Boston Volunteer Meetup and Social Fun.

About Us The Hugs & Hope Club for Sick Kids was created by Marsha Jordan in October 2000, as a ministry of encouragement for children battling critical illness. Every month we feature new stories and photos of sick children on our website. Our visitors and volunteers pray for, encourage, and send these children cheery postal mail (a.k.a."happy mail"). Our volunteers also sponsor many special projects to brighten the lives of the children on a regular basis!

    Hi Everybody,

    I just want everyone to know that I have counted all the cards and came up with a grand total of 183!!! Let me just thank everybody again for all the hard work and creative effort that made this possible! I'm preparing now to send out the first wave of cards, and I won't finish until every card finds it's way into the hands of it's intended child. Please also check out the photos of the event that were taken by my good friend, Dina! Thank you,

    Rick
