We’re not so sure. We’ve heard some people say they love supporting Cardz for Kidz!because it’s a way everyone can get involved without leaving their rooms, offices or classrooms. Then other people say they like it because they know there are some local hospitals/shelters receiving these handmade cards.
Here is one direct quote: “It was a great way to be able to ‘volunteer [my] time’ while not leaving the office.”
We’re not so sure if we agree with the last part—not leaving the office. Yes, we understand that most groups do not leave their rooms, offices or classrooms to make their cards at a hospital, park or some other location. Also, we know some groups simply integrate their card-making activities throughout the work day. That means people can take a break from their work and slip out to make a card. With that in mind, some people may think that it’s “not leaving the office,” but we must look at the bigger picture.
While you may not physically leave your office, know that your impact spans the globe! We have another blog post coming up that will touch on how most of our cards have, and will be, delivered here in the United States since this is where we’re based and receive most of the cards. Still over 5,000 cards have been sent to uplift the spirts of children outside the United States—and that number will drastically increase.
Therefore, although you may not be leaving your rooms, offices or classrooms—you’ve been STEPPING OUTSIDE your normal day-to-day activities and brightening the days of children (and their families) around the world.
