Maggie May’s has been on a mission to get 500 volunteer-made greeting cards into the hands of local foster kids and teens.
Through a lot of helping hands, we just dropped off our 500th card!
We dropped off half of the cards (250 of them!) to Jessica at My Very Own Blanket. They are a wonderful organization that has given thousands of volunteer-made blankets to foster kids over the years. They are going to give a handmade card along with a blanket to a foster child to help them feel loved and secure.
The second half (250 cards) were dropped off to Elizabeth and Leesa at Franklin County Children’s Services.
Leesa gave me a tour of their Holiday Wish warehouse. It is such a great program to get holiday toys to kids and teens currently in foster care. If you are able to donate to a toy drive in your area, please do. It really does make a difference to a child.
This mission could not have been accomplished without all of the help! Thank you to all the kids, adults, and seniors who helped make these greeting cards.
And thank you to Dublin Recreation Center, Whole Foods-Dublin, Whole Foods-UA, Columbus Museum of Art, Mrs. Chrisenberry, The Art Chix and Aussie Fit Hilliard for your help!
We hope these cards will help brighten someone’s day and give encouragement and hope to a child.
