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.

  1. I just wanted you to know that I posted your blog on my blog! I really think it's great what you are doing for so many people! I will try to help as soon as I am able. We have a newborn in the house that is a bit demanding yet- and doesn't have a set schedule... my main focus has been trying to keep up the house on my downtime! If I can't help with this one- the next I hope to! Thanks for all you do with your cards and getting people involved!
