As some of you may know, I am a design team member for Card Cupids.
The mission of Card Cupids is to collect and send a bundle of cards with words of encouragement to needy children for their birthdays, holidays or in a time of need. We are currently working with The Children's Hospital at Legacy Emanuel in Portland, OR as well as other individual children.
Our mission is simple but important; to brighten the day of a needy child. For me, knowing I can make a child smile just by making a card is priceless. Please consider donating a card, it’s for a great cause!
