2019 Celebrating Parents Card Drive

by Altenew

Blog PostWe are so fortunate to be part of such a warm, caring, and giving crafting community.

With that being said, 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 3rd and April 29th, and each donor is eligible to win one of FIVE $30 Altenew gift certificatesIf you use #AltenewCardDrive when you share your Celebrating Parents cards on social media, you are entered to win one of THREE additional $15 gift certificates! The winners will be announced on Mother’s Day, Sunday, May 12th, 2019.

Here are some important reminders and 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.
  • Kindly put each card in an envelope and make sure they are not sealed.
  • To enter the giveaway, please include a post-it note with your name and email address.
  • We would love for you to use Altenew products, but of course, your cards may use products from other companies!
  • Send your cards to:
    ATTN: Card Drive
    6179 East Molloy Road,
    East Syracuse, NY 13057

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

We have chosen four stamp sets that are great for your Mother’s Day and Father’s Day projects: Best Dad, Painted Rose, Extra Special, Lotus, Cross Stitch Flower, and Best Mom. 20% of the profits from these stamp sets until Father’s Day, June 16th, 2019, will be donated to the 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 in our crafting community!  

We hope you can join us for this great cause. Thank you for those who made this possible. We feel truly blessed to have your support!

Wait – there’s more!

To celebrate this special card drive, we are going to have an inspirational blog hop with prizes on 4/7/2019 so stay tuned!

This is Awesome!! My step mom is in a home, and so many of the other people there dont have any cards on there tables. Even at christmas time. It’s so sad

I think this is a wonderful idea … so wonderful that I would like to do it for those in the nearest care centre to me here in Mauritius.

I donate a lot of cards to nursing homes in the area and you’re right that so many don’t receive visitors or get cards. I participated in this card drive last year and am going to start working on some cards again! Thank you for making sure that some of those who wouldn’t otherwise receive a card get some love this year!
