volunteering – day 4

Remember how I like to force my family to do art and crafts with me? I talked about it here. Well today I got my sister to join me in a little project!

We used our creativity to help brighten the day of sick and/or injured children. How you ask? By sending them fun cards!
I don’t know about you but I love getting cards. It makes my day, especially with a little personalized note inside.

We had to keep the cards pretty generic so they can be given to anyone but I’m sure the children enjoy them. I even added an ‘in Virginia’ to my signature so they know that the card was sent all the way across the country to them in California.

I broke out all the markers, pencils, and colored paper that I could find. Then we went to town.

It was a pretty quick project but fun!

Of course I wish we could go see the kids but a cross country trip isn’t possible. šŸ™‚ I actually looked into volunteering at one of the children’s hospitals here in Richmond but they require a one year commitment which I can’t give since I want to keep volunteering at different places. The good news is, I think there are special events where they need volunteers once in a while. I’ll be looking more into that soon.

If you’d like to give this project a try, here’s the link! Instead of spending Sunday afternoon just staring at the TV why not throw it some coloring while you’re at it? That’s what we did! šŸ™‚

    I think what you girls are doing in your various volunteering ways is wonderful! I guess all those times I brought you to the local soup kitchen, March Of Dimes Walk and Adopt-A-River volunteer activities really made an impression and I think it’s great. As you know “The smallest act of kindness is worth more than the greatest intention”.
    Love you guys!!
