New Mission for August! IFOPA

Hi Everyone! Thank you for taking the time to read this post! I am very
excited to get started with this month’s Card for a Cause sponsored group. This month will be IFOPA(International Fibrodysplasia Ossificans Progressiva Association). To learn more about this diagnosis please visit Here is a detailed video of IFOPA:

I only learned of this diagnosis a year ago when my best friend daughter was diagnosed with this rare disorder. The average person diagnosed with IFOPA lives to be around the age of 40. I think it would really help boost their moral to know that a complete stranger thought about them and made them a card just for encouragement and hope. I hope that you will join me in this important cause to support and lift up individuals that are battling with IFOPA.

There are no restrictions for your card donations. Anything that you can do
to help and encourage would be much appreciated. Some ideas for the cards
would be: Hello, Hi, Thinking of you, Thank you, Wishing you all the
best, Greetings, Warm Wishes, Let Your Light Shine, Smile...Someone's Thinking of You, Happy Birthday(for anyone that may be celebrating a birthday), With Sympathy(for loved ones that have passed on),Get Well Soon, and Biblical messages. Please leave them blank inside. I have a pre-printed message that I stick inside each card. Please try and send an envelope along with your card, if possible.

I'll be sure and update how many cards we have donated. Feel free to
post a link to the cards that you have made so we can all see your work! If you don't have a link let me know if I have permission to post them. :0)

Please have your cards to me no later than August 31st.

Send them to this address:

Compassionate Cards
PO Box 1145
Gig Harbor , WA 98335

Please do not hesitate to ask questions. Thank you in advance to all
that can participate! I know they will appreciate them dearly. :0) Julie.

Total for this month!

Hi Everyone! Just a quick update to let you know that we have 135 cards for this month. I am so excited to bring them in to the Cancer Care Alliance!!! :0) I had no idea when I started this mission that I would be faced with cancer again in my family, but it did. :0( I found out earlier this month that my grandfather in England has cancer so this mission hits right at home with me. I wish they could treat my grandfather because I saw how wonderful they treated my step-father. I will be out of contact until the 10th of August. I will miss keeping in touch with you while I am out. Unfortunately, they do not have a computer. There may be more cards coming in for this mission while I am out so I will wait to bring them to CCA until I get back. XOXO Julie.

I have always dreamed of having natural talent like this, being able to pick up a pencil, sketch and then color them in. Really unbelievable raw talent! I love the creativity and know that they are just going to love receiving them! Thank you Shirley! :0)
