Cards For A Cause

As some of you may know Mom loves making cards and other crafty things BUT she doesn't have anyone to give all the things she makes too. She use to do a lot of craft and art fairs when she lived in other places but sadly there are no such things in the area where we live now. So when she came across a group earlier this year she was so happy. It is called "Cards For a Cause" It is a group that makes and donates cards for groups who need them. These are the cards she made for the group Forgotton4paws. They just wanted dog related thank you cards to send to people who adopt a furbaby. Other groups they have helped this year are.

April - St Baldricks Foundation (Childhood Cancer Research)
March - Forgotten4paws (Animal welfare, rescue and adoption)
February Cole's Foundation (Childhood Cancer Research)
January - Deployed Soldiers League (Soldiers who are deployed overseas)

If you are part of a group or know of a group that could use some cards - please let Mom know (email her at cowspotdog@mail.com) and she will be happy to suggest it to the Card For A Cause group. They will need your groups name, a brief outline of what they do, a mailing address to send the cards too and a contact person for the group.

  8. This is great! My MOM has used the cards you sent us at our church and they bring so much joy! Now that MOM is working at the Homeless Shelter as well she just might send you information as one of the things my MOM does there is send thank you cards to the generous people who make a donation to the shelter.
    Blessings,

  9. Your cards are so pretty and you are so good to give them to such a good cause. We think you should also think about opening an Etsy shop where you could sell them.
