About a year ago I was talking to my friend at Huntsman Cancer Institute, she mentioned that they had a real need for Journals for their patients who are either in the Intensive care unit or undergoing a bone marrow transplant. Fast forward a few weeks and at our March 2013, Diane from Montana came to the show with about 75-100 adorable journals! What a blessing! Here is an excerpt from a letter I received after dropping off our donation:

 We have started passing out some of the journals and the patients have marveled at the creativity of the volunteers that put those together.  Majority will go to our intensive care patients....

his has been a great connection Kristin, I cannot thank you enough.  The patients are truly appreciative and the smiles we get when they receive the gifts are priceless.  It lifts their spirits, even if for a moment.

What a miracle the journals have been! We need more! Pick up a composition notebook, some paper and a few embellishments and before long, a beautiful journal can be put together!

There are a few ways to get involved:
1. Make a few at home and donate them at the show in our Care With Cards and Crafts booth
2. Stop by at our Make-n-Donate area during the show and use the available supplies and your creativity to put together a beautiful journal to donate.

In addition to journals, at our March 2014 show we will also be collecting hats, blankets, card kits and cards for soldiers! Thanks SO much for helping out and getting involved!!
