    • Hello

  • Inside of the card: leave blank.  Hospital staff will write a personal message to the children before signing.
    • If using a dark colored card base, please adhere a white or light colored piece of cardstock to the inside of card.  This make it easier for patients to read the hand-written message from the staff.
  • Back of the card (Optional):  your full name  only… OR… your full name + “Cards for Little Hearts Card Drive” only.  You are welcome to download and use this watermark.

SPECIAL NOTES

  • Do not include any religious symbols or religious sentiment on your cards.
  • No “Get Well” or “Feel Better Soon” cards and messages or anything that would remind the children of being sick.
    • No loose glitters.  But okay to use are:  Wink of Stella, glitter pens. glitter paste, glitter tape, embossed powders, glitter drops or glitter papers.
    • Do not use any internet images unless you have paid for it or have received direct permission from the owner to use it.
    • Do not include your personal information such as address, e-mail, phone number.  The hospital cannot distribute out any cards that have these information on them.
