CREATING GIVING SPIRIT FRIENDSHIP CARDS:

DEADLINE TO DROP OFF THE NEXT 3000 CARDS DUE BY JUNE 4TH AND THE FINAL 4000 CARDS MUST BE IN BY JUNE 21ST.

In the coming weeks, The Giving Spirit is committed to serving 10,000 homeless lives by building and delivering new Health and Safety Kits to help protect 10,000 of our most vulnerable neighbors during this dangerous time.

And just as with their traditional Survival Kits, each Health and Safety Kit will include a homemade “Friendship Card” – it’s often the first item that the recipients pull from the bag because it tells them just how much we care and gives them hope that they are not forgotten!

This is where you come in…

We would love your compassion and creativity to help create these cards…and make sure it gets to those in need. It’s totally safe and easier than you might think.

First, fold a sheet of 8.5” x 11” paper in half, lengthwise.

Then fold it again, to make your card.

This is the front of the card.

Here is where you show off your art skills! We encourage the use of color in your drawings: markers, crayons, colored pencils – whatever arts supplies you already have in your house.

This is the inside of the card.

Your personal, written message goes here. Write from the heart. Share your love, your encouragement and wishes for the recipient’s good health and safety.

Just think what you’d want to hear during this very scary time. And feel free to sign your name, so they know who spent the time and effort to brighten their day.

If you’re feeling inspired, make 2…or 10. We need to reach 10,000 – so get your family, friends and classmates involved!
