Caring Hearts Post #5


Hello patient friends!
I have been MIA again, regarding the blog-o-sphere.  Lots going on on the home front, winding down at work and making cards, as well as receiving, sorting, and registering all the wonderful cards that have been coming in for the Caring Hearts Card Drive. Over 800 before I left for a wonderful Thanksgiving with our friends in Milwaukee.

Next week my helpers and I will begin boxing up the cards for delivery.
My friend Julianne, one of the founders of Ottawa Therapy Dogs, here in Ottawa Ontario, had the brilliant idea of having therapy dog teams deliver the cards to the nursing home residents they already visit regularly. Project Reindog was very successful and enjoyed by both the "deliverers and receivers."  This year, Julianne contacted other pet therapy associations across Canada, to see if they would be on-board with hand/paw-delivering the cards in other provinces. The idea was welcomed enthusiastically, and we will ship boxes of cards to British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan and the Maritimes. Ottawa Therapy Dogs will deliver cards in the National Capital area, and we will also send boxes directly to nursing homes in Ontario and Manitoba that have contacted us. Spreading joy and smiles!
Thank you to all the wonderful craftspeople who have donated cards, dollars and stamps for shipping costs, and personal messages this year. The Caring Hearts Card Drive is such a win-win endeavour! We all love creating, and knowing that our efforts are appreciated is frosting on the cake... I'd like to thank Vera Wirianta Yates for continuing to spear-head the drive for the past six years.
Happy last-day-of-Thanksgiving, and have a great week!
Big hugs,
Caroline
