I'm Going to the Hospital. . .

Hopefully, we’ve started a tradition. We went to the hospital! No wait! There was no emergency or accident. We went to deliver a collection of handmade cards to Children’s Memorial Hospital. This year the Windy City Meet Up Group had a Card Swap. As part of the Swap each person was asked to make one additional card that would go to Children’s. The holiday season can be very difficult for those who are in the hospital for extended periods of time. Hopefully our cards and toys can bring a smile and a little happiness to these children.

Here’s a picture of Zach and the Children’s Volunteer accepting the cards and toys. In our household any extra change goes directly to the coin jar. In December all the change gets counted (at the bank). Zach then has to shop and buy cool toys for the kids at the hospital. Today he delivered the toys he had bought. Later he told me “I kinda know how Santa.feels”

Thank you to all who participated. Your time and talent is greatly appreciated. :)

Merry Christmas to All!
