Cards For Kindness - Donating Cards

You can spread kindness with your creativity through our Cards for Kindness initiative!

Here's how it works:

  1. You send your handmade cards (blank inside - with no personal message) to  
  2. We organize and distribute the cards to hospitals, crisis centers, cancer foundations, retirement homes, and other organizations. 
  3. The cards are used by nurses, staff members, counselors, and volunteers, who add handwritten messages of encouragement and love and give them to patients, children, and other people in need.  

Many of these cards will become cherished treasures that will be kept and preserved for years to come.

Tips For Donating Your Cards

  • Make sure all the cards are facing the same way with their coordinating envelopes
  • While you can certainly rubberband your stack of cards together, we ask that you don't individually wrap cards or place them in clear plastic sleeves
  • Top choices for mailing your cards are small cardboard boxes, bubble mailers, or manila mailing envelopes
  • We are huge fans of glitter, ribbons, and confetti but ask that you don't include them in your Cards for Kindness packages
  • Wrap your cards in tissue paper or bubble wrap to protect your cards in the mailing and receiving process
  • Don't forget to include your completed submission form so that we can keep track of card donations and contact you to confirm receipt of your cards
