Every quarter Cardz for Kidz!promises each hospital/shelter we partner with that we’ll send them a certain amount of cards. For some hospitals, based on our room to room requirement and their size, they’ve requested that we send them less than their overall hospital capacity. Some smaller hospitals updated us that they often don’t have many long term patients and have high turnover. Based on that they asked if once every 3 months, we could send more cards than they have beds.
In addition, to those preset hospital destinations we often make multiple special deliveries. This is highlighted in our mission statement.
Cardz for Kidz!is an organization dedicated to uplifting the spirits of hospitalized and/or traumatized children across the globe by delivering inspiring homemade cards.
Here are some examples of the some traumatized children we reached out to:
235 cards in Q4 2012 to Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newton, Connecticut after the school shooting
15 cards in Q2 2013 to Neighborhood Charter House School in Boston, MA after the Boston marathon bombing
50 cards in Q1 2014 to Berrendo Middle School in Roswell, New Mexico after the school shooting
Thanks to you we even received some documented gratitude from a couple of those places.
