December Mission Salvation Army-New Contest!

Hi Everyone! Thank you for taking the time to read this post! I am very
excited to get started with this month's Compassionate Cards mission. This month will be the Salvation Army located in Tacoma, WA. For more information, please visit their website at:
This organization is a Christian based organization that provides services to the public which include:

• Counseling
• Rental Assistance
• Food
• Life Saving Prescriptions (exclusions include but are not limited to: Narcotics)
• Transportation Assistance
• Utility Assistance
• Emergency Housing
• Child Care
• Nursing Home Visits (League of Mercy)
• Youth Programs
• Emergency Services
• Disaster Relief

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.

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, Happy Birthday, and Get Well. Please leave them blank inside. I have a pre-printed message that I place inside each card. Please try and send an envelope along with your card, if possible. One special note: If you will be sending Christmas cards please try and have them to be by the 15th of December, that way I will have a chance to hand deliver them before Christmas. After the 15th of December please send non-Christmas cards.

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! :0)

Please have your cards to me no later than December 31st. If sending Christmas cards, please have them to me by the 15th. :0)

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.

PS I'm offering another contest this month to the person who donates the most cards. I will post a video soon of the fun prize! Cards must be received by December 31st to be considered for this month's contest! :0)
