Help Us Create Friendship Cards

Friendship cards are due by Monday, Dec. 6th.


In the coming weeks, The Giving Spirit is committed to serving our homeless neighbors by assembling and delivering 2,000 of our Street Survival Kits, each filled with over 60 lifesaving items, from food and hydration, to clothing, hygiene, medical supplies and protection from the elements – everything that will help an individual or a family though the next day, the next week and the next month.

Every Street Survival 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 a meaningful endeavor – 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.

Card Instructions 2

This is the front of the card.

Card Instructions 3

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 have in your home.

This is the inside of the card.

Card Instructions 4

Your personal, written message goes here. Write from the heart. Share your love, your encouragement and warmth for the recipient.

Just put yourself in their position – and think what you’d like to hear during this difficult, scary time.

And please sign your first 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 2,000 – so get your family, friends and classmates involved!
