Birthday Mail Update!

Tuesday, October 15, 2013

Sorry I've been so mia lately! I've been so busy with family stuff and catching up on school that I've barely had time to write a new post, but I do have some posts lined up so no worries! (;

Anyways, a while back I wrote a Thankful Thursday post about John Stamos Day, which was August 19th. Basically, DoSomething.org wanted to send 50,000 handmade birthday cards to kids in homeless shelters by October 15th. They also added an incentive: for each handmade birthday card you sent, you would be entered into a lottery for a $4,000 scholarship for college. I'm not sure if they met their goal, but I'll keep you guys posted! To read my post about John Stamos Day click here.


As I mentioned before, the official day to send a birthday card was October 15th (you can still send birthday cards though! you just won't be entered for the scholarship), and me being the procrastinator that I am, didn't even end up making them and sending them until October 14th! I know, I am a terrible person! I only had time to make four cards but it was really fun and exciting knowing that these cards would help brighten a kid's day! (:

I ended up sending them to Holy Family Shelter. (:




I'm kind of disappointed that I only made four, but there's always next time! I wish I had the time to randomly make some birthday cards through out the year. Maybe next year I'll try to send one birthday card everyday! (: Overall though, it was really a great experience and it truly makes me happy that I can make someone else happy, even if it's just one other person. <3
