Remember getting cutesy Valentines in elementary school? Receiving a Valentine, even when we’re grown up, can make us feel good. Why not give back by helping a child feel special and giving a Valentine to Project Angel Hugs for Childhood Cancer? From its website, “Project Angel Hugs is a non-profit organization that tries to add a spark of laughter and fun to the life of children and their families touched by cancer.”
This February, Project Angel Hugs will distribute your donated handmade, computer generated, or store bought Valentines to children enrolled in Hugs’ programs. These children will no doubt have smiles on their faces when receiving a kind and festive reminder that they are each being thought of. Above are examples that we will be contributing, made by two ModCloth employees.
Further guidelines for the Angel Hugs Valentines campaign –
- Please sign the greeting
- If the greetings are in envelopes, do not seal the envelopes
- Do not send Valentines with candy
- Address the greeting to “Someone Special” or “A Special Someone,” not to a specific child
Project Angel Hugs would like to receive these donations by January 29th. If you mail your contributions by early next week, Hugs should receive them on time. Mail to: Project Angel Hugs, 406 East Mill Street, Plymouth, WI 53073.
Making Valentines for Hugs could be a meaningful and fun project to do with a few friends this weekend. You can also join the cause on Facebook and find more information about the organization on their homepage.
Are there any charities that you are involved with that could use some love this Valentines Day?
