2020 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 4th and April 20th, 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 10th, 2020.

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. Feel free to 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 a few Altenew products that are great for your Mother’s Day and Father’s Day cards (and other year-round projects!)

20% of the profits from these stamp sets until Father’s Day, June 21st, 2020, 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 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 3/25/2020 so stay tuned!

So kind of you to collect cards and give them away! I really hope I have the time to make some. How many cards do you usually get? Also excited for the stamp sets that are on sale. There are a couple I would like to get. Thanks Altenew for sharing your kindness with others.

This is awesome. I have a few friends who are gender nonbinary, and are neither fathers nor mothers but are parents. I want to make them cards this year, and mail them sometime around Mothers and Fathers Day, or both! Are you including nonbinary parents in this card drive?

I like the idea to give back to the community and share love.

A very wonderful thought! I would love to be a part of the drive. Would you accept cards from India?
