Once again, we’re going to be 100% open and honest. We’ve got it documented that we’ve delivered well over 20,000 cards to disheartened children or solemn seniors across the globe. With that said, we doubt that we’ve changed 20,000 lives. In fact, we can’t even 100% guarantee we’ve uplifted 20,000 spirits…..with that it’s more or of a 99.9%. If you think about it, even if some kids don’t enjoy their cards, some cards excite much more than one person.
An Elsa card excited an entire family at Mott Children’s Hospital in Ann Arbor.
With that in mind, some may question why we make such a big deal about our other main hash tag, #EveryCardCounts. Why do we spend the time to calculate how many cards each group makes and remind the group how many smiles they create? The first reason: its all first person!
We work with each hospital and shelter we partner with to let them know we understand all about HIPAA, patient and child protection/privacy laws. We tell them that our goal is to make it as EASY as possible for them to receive cards. It’d be a dream come true, if more hospitals were like Franciscan Hospital in MA and tweeted or sent pictures, but we won’t put any pressure on them. With that in mind, the majority of the pictures you see of patients in their rooms with their cards are all taken by “staff” at Cardz for Kidz!. So, when we highlight that your cards are helping kids and their families, it’s not simply hearsay. It’s not simply an estimate. It’s something we’ve experienced.
We’ve seen the smiles. We’ve seen the tears of joy.
Although we’re only 99.9% sure we’ve uplifted over 20,000 spirits due to your work, based on these smiles, we think that’s STILL ENOUGH….for now!
