The Hospital for Sick Children is a phenomenal place.  It's a place where hope stays alive, even for the sickest of children.  I have been so fortunate that neither of my children have had to go to SickKids for any serious illness, but in my life as an advertising copywriter, I did work for this client and learned so much about the important work they do.

Did you know that some children don't get to go home for the holidays?  SickKids makes sure that Christmas, or whatever holiday you celebrate, is special for these kids and their families.  And my friend Anabela is one of their elves.  At Christmas and all the year through, Anabela takes cards to SickKids, so that they can give a little happiness.

Anabela's doing another card drive and making a delivery on December 15.  Charlie and I have already started making cards for her to take.

Some of our cards, and the goodies we're using to make them.

Today, I'm asking you to make 
a few cards for the kids at SickKids.  
It would so brighten their day.  The cards don't have to be fancy or covered in embellishments.  Sometimes the simplest cards give the biggest smiles!  Dig in your stash and see if you have any extras that are just sitting, collecting dust or maybe even getting crumpled.  Then mail them to me by December 10 (email me at or leave a comment here and I'll send you my snail mail address).  I will make sure they get to Anabela to take to the kids.
