Urgently in need of donations!

DonationsHeader

Today we received 5 new applicants for the Cards of Hope program.  We generally get 1-3 a week.  There are currently over 500 people worldwide enrolled in the program.  We are in desperate need of any and all donations.  One book of stamps ($9.40) helps us send out 20 cards to 20 people.  If we don’t get some donations in shortly, we may have to turn new people enrolling away.  We don’t want to ever have to do that.  Please consider donating something (stamps, cards, stickers, tattoos, bookmarks, jewelry, craft kits and etc) today.  *We also have an Amazon wishlist to make donating even easier* Here is a link to our donation page:  http://cards-of-hope.com/donations/  Thank you so much for your support!
