About The Event

Come make holiday cards for hospitalized kids and Cards For Hospitalized Kids (https://www.cardsforhospitalizedkids.com/make-cards.html) will distribute them to hospitals all around the United States! This activity is best for kids 5-12, but all ages are welcomed. There are teens in the hospital too, they may appreciate a more teen to teen card! Adults are welcome to make cards as well. We will be in an enclosed room at the library, so it will be safe for kids to roam about.

AS THIS IS A COMMUNITY SERVICE EVENT, PLEASE FEEL FREE TO BRING DONATED CRAFT MATERIALS FOR THE CARDS. AnySchoolers will have some basics covered, but you can get fancy too!

Cards for Hospitalized Kids (CFHK) distributes holiday cards for all major holidays.  ​Making holiday cards is very similar to making general cards. The only difference is that you include a happy holiday message rather than just a general one. Making holiday cards is a great way to celebrate the season and give back.  Being in the hospital and battling a health condition is difficult at any time, but especially during the holidays. This is why CFHK strives to give holiday cards to as many hospitalized kids as possible each holiday season. We hope you will help by making cards.

Q: Can I also write general messages along with holiday messages? A: Yes, you can also include general messages from the Make Cards section, such as “Stay Strong” or “Never Forget How Amazing YOU Are” etc., with holiday messages. It is up to you. Can I see photos of holiday cards previously sent to CFHK? ​A: Yes, you can view photos here. There are also many photos on our Facebook page and other social media. A: What are the rules regarding glitter, and other similar craft products? A: As with general cards, the only rule is that it's not excessive to the point of falling off, as that can create health concerns for some patients. A good way to test your glitter is to rub your finger over it and ensure none rubs off.  Q: Can I write “Merry Christmas” on holiday cards? A: Yes. However, if possible, we recommend you also make some cards, for patients that don’t celebrate Christmas, with other holiday messages, such as: “Happy Hanukkah” , “Happy New Year”  , “Happy Holidays”.
