2017 Celebrating Parents Card Drive

by May Sukyong Park

884x490 with logoWe are so fortunate to be part of such a warm, caring, and giving community.  And we would like to invite you to participate in a special card drive to help bring some love and happiness to others!

Mother’s Day and Father’s Day are approaching, and this can be a difficult time for seniors who are in nursing homes or shelters.  We want these important people to feel loved, celebrated, and honored, and we need your help!

We will be collecting handmade cards between March 27th and May 3rd, and each donor is eligible to win one of FIVE $30 Altenew gift certificates!  If you use #AltenewCardDrive when you share your Celebrating Parents cards on social media, you are entered to win one of TWO additional $15 gift certificates!  The winners will be announced on Mother's Day, Sunday, May 14th, 2017.

Please adhere to the following guidelines:

  • Cards may be for Mother’s Day or Father’s Day.  Sentiments should be generic – a specific greeting such as “so happy you’re my dad” wouldn’t really work.
  • Please sign your name on the inside of each card.  You may also include a note and where you are from!
  • Include an envelope for each card you send, and make sure they are not sealed.
  • To be eligible for the giveaway, please include a post-it note with your name and email address. (one post-it note per package, please.)
  • We would love for you to use Altenew products, but of course, your cards may use products from any companies!
  • Send cards to:
    ATTN: Card Drive
    222 Teall Ave,
    Syracuse, NY 13210

If you have any questions or would like us to send cards to a local shelter or nursing home near you, please email us at support@altenew.com with subject line Celebrating Parents Card Drive.

donation stamps
(Penned Rose, Extra SpecialBest Dad and Best Mom)

We have chosen four stamp sets that are great for your Mother's Day and Father's Day projects.  20% of the profits from these stamp sets till Father's Day, June 18th, 2017, will be donated to Food Bank of Central New York to support seniors in need.

This is another great way for you to show the support and the love of our crafting community!  We hope you can join us in this great cause.  Thank you for those who made this possible, we feel truly blessed to be able to support them! We hope you can join in this great cause.

To celebrate this special card drive, we are planning an inspirational blog hop with prizes on 4/19,  so stay tuned!

What an awesome thing to do, I lost my Mom this year and have been struggling with all the beautiful Mothers Day cards that this awesome card community has been posting. I think this will be therapeutic for me as well as hopefully touch someone else’s life. Thanks for doing this!

This is a great thing for you all to do. Both of my parents have passed on and I hadn’t made any of these cards for years. I have a few that I will be sending in. Everyone needs our kindness and appreciation, especially those that are older.
