Welcome to this year's Celebrating Parents Card Drive! Are you looking for simple ways to give back and spread happiness? Donate your handmade cards for a cause! Come and join this special card drive and help spread love, one card at a time!
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, so we have organized the Celebrating Parents Card Drive just as we have in previous years.
As card makers, we know how meaningful it is to share our handmade creations and this card drive will help you do just that!
JOIN OUR CELEBRATING PARENTS CARD DRIVE 2022!
We will be collecting handmade cards between March 8th and April 20th, 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 THREE additional $15 gift certificates! The winners will be announced on Mother’s Day, Sunday, May 8th, 2022.
Here are some important reminders and guidelines:
- Cards may be for Mother’s Day and/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.
- Note: Please avoid including any vulgar language, promotional material, or religious messages in your cards.
- 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 feature products from other companies!
- Send your cards to:
ATTN: Card Drive
3005 Milton Ave
Syracuse, NY 13209
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 firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line “Celebrating Parents Card Drive.”
