Sunshine Mail

It's been a while since I've created cards for the Sunshine Mail Foundation, however I pulled their current requests list last month and made a card for each of the children on the list. The description of the recipient helped me pull items from my stash for the cards - two of the little girls liked the color pink, one liked horses, and another one's favorite character was Minnie Mouse.


I had seen a card in a magazine that had shapes punched out of a paint chip, so I borrowed that idea for cards for the two boys on the list.

 

The Sunshine Mail Foundation is a nonprofit organization that provides children in need comfort, support and joy through free Sunshine Mail Care Packages. Sunshine Mail is filled with handmade cards and postcards, a new stuffed animal, a coloring book and crayons. Packages are delivered to children in need including hospitals, homeless shelters and foster care.

Making cards is good fun, but making cards with a purpose like this is much, much better. What a fantastic charity. Those cards are going too be very much appreciated.
