I think if we each do one act of kindness a day, we could change this world one person at a time. Thank you for doing this.

I would love to participate in this card drive. Thank you for another year of organizing this. My mother is overseas and unfortunately, mail is not secure and guaranteed delivery in her country. So for the past years, I’ve been creating cards with her as inspiration especially during this occasion.

Great stamps and a great cause! My Mom is in a care facility, I make her sets of cards to give to her friends/family which she loves. I plan to do more of this but it’s always a time thing. I send out loads of cards to elderly family/friends for their special occasions and holidays. I’m currently working on a dozen Easter cards to send to these folks.

I love this drive! What a fabulous idea and sooooo sweet! I hope to join! Parents are so special!

Pat March 25, 2021 - 21:03

The flowers in your stamp sets are the best! I have had the Extra Special Stamp Set for a while now and use it for so many different occasions. My parents and my husbands parents are all gone now, but we have an elderly couple who were our neighbors for 6 years that we have adopted. We love spending time with them as their son lives quite a distance from them. They are very sweet to us as well. Being kind to everyone is the best way to support the human family!

Gayle Hicks March 25, 2021 - 21:49

Very nice idea!

I LOVE that Altenew organizes this card drive for Seniors in nursing homes! Unfortunately, so many Seniors are forgotten. And the Pandemic hasn’t been easy for any of us! Altenew has so many talented and inspiring cardmakers! AND the best products!

Truly beautiful Alex!!!!!! Thank you for sharing your card and joining this beautiful cause!!!!!

Esther March 26, 2021 - 09:17

What a great cause – and beautiful cards by the DT.

Sharon Gullikson March 26, 2021 - 09:47

I like that you are donating to a charity that helps seniors who don’t have money. My grandma could have been helped greatly by a service like that. She and her husband were disabled (he had a major problem from birth), and they lived very simply. He was murdered by a gang in the late 1970s, leaving my grandma with even less money coming in. My parents had to help her pay her bills each month even though they didn’t have much, either. This lasted for over 35 years. So it would have been great if she had been helped by a charity. Thank you so much for donating to this charity :) I am looking forward to seeing all of the beautiful creations…

Binish K March 26, 2021 - 13:09

Great Blog hop! love seeing all the cards. Love the idea of reaching out to seniors with the card drive. Thanks Altenew. I lost both my parents when I was very young and never got to celebrate all those Mother’s days and Father’s days with them, but now you let me make cards for all my surrogate moms and dads.

dorothyayotte March 26, 2021 - 17:26

Such a fantastic blog hop! I have started saving my Altenew blog comment till last to reflect on all I have seen. I loved all the inspiration from incredible artists and designers and the beautiful products from Altenew. I better get started making cards for seniors! I lost both of my parents this year (at age 100 and 94- God gave them wonderful lives and families) but my heart longs to send them my love. This drive is such a great opportunity to send love to those still here who are not forgotten and need to be reminded they are appreciated!

Daria Z. March 26, 2021 - 17:57

This is such a wonderful thing – I’ll be sending in cards again this year!! Fabulous inspiration, too!

Pam Boedeker March 26, 2021 - 18:47

What a great cause … especially this year when so many seniors have been so isolated. My goal is to make 50 cards for the drive.

Anny Hale March 26, 2021 - 19:46

Thoughtful idea and so many beautiful cards!

Kelly Santi March 26, 2021 - 20:41

An absolutely wonderful cause! Having an elderly mom (almost 80 years young!) this warms my heart to see. I am so happy to see your constant generosity and charitability! Altenew – you are THE BEST! xx
