2015 "Cards from the Heart Card Drive" Totals

Hey everybody! Sorry for the delay! I've been busy getting everything finished up and watching lots of basketball games and touraments for my kids.
But all the cards are counted, packaged, and shipped off! Here is a pic of the last shipment of cards, that I sent off on Thursday.
And the Grand total was......3,971 cards! :) Although We didn't beat last year's total, we still met our goals! Yay! :) 
We did get a couple more places to send to, but I still want to try and add more next year! I can't tell you how many emails I have sent out to hospital's, and it's either against their rules, have other avenues of getting cards (I'm so happy about that), or just no response! I did get a few, and for that I am Grateful!  But I will keep trying! :)

Here is a list of the places we sent cards this year.

*St. Jude Children's Hospital
*TX Children's Hospital
*Nationwide Children's Hospital
*St. Joseph's Children's Hospital of Tampa
*Cincinnati Children's Hospital -
Medical Center
*St. Louis Children's Hospital Foundation
*UF Health Shands Children's Hospital
*Cook Children's Medical Center
*Shriners Hospital for Children
*-Northern California
*Sinclair Children's Center (orphanage)
*Pendleton Place (orphanage)
*Victoria (who is fighting cancer from home) and some cards for her 2 brothers too! :)

I want to Thank each and everyone of you for all of the hard work in making cards, sending them, the prayers, the encouraging words, the donations for the prizes, donations to help with shipping costs, and for believing in this ministry! Ya'll are Amazing! Thank you, Thank you, Thank you! ♡
And Thank you to my family, for ignoring the clutter of the cards everywhere! :) And Thank you to my kids for helping me seal envelopes, that was a Huge help to me! 

I will be back soon to announce the winners of the prizes! :)
