When our loved ones are diagnosed with cancer and are undergoing treatments, we look for ways to reach out to help them as much as possible. Sending a message of hope is sometimes the best medicine we can give. Sending personalized greeting cards to them is one of the easiest ways to connect with someone as they are going through treatments. There’s something in the healing power of your spirit to read card after card knowing that someone is thinking of you as you are facing cancer. My sweet uncle sent a card every day to my other uncle while he went through treatments, it gave him something to look forward to tomorrow, a message of love, strength and hope!
We are so excited to be a part of this wonderful fundraiser for the American Cancer Society, and to be working with an incredibly talented group of bloggers who focus on creative and thoughtful activities for kids! Each of us has worked with our children, students or in our case even parents to create a craft that could be made by or for someone facing cancer. The projects in this book are stunning, and several include tutorials so that you can use to recreate the crafts at home with your own children or students!
Both of my children created this special greeting card for the Small Hands Creating Hope project. This is an idea of a card that you can easily create for a loved one who’s going through cancer treatment or for patients staying at the Hope Lodge. A full tutorial for our Greeting Card Project is included in the Small Hands Creating Hope Book.
Here’s a peek at what we created…
