Help Me Help Ronald McDonald House Charities!

ETA: I will be periodically moving this post up to the top in hopes of catching the interest of anyone in the Columbus, Ohio area that would be interested in making cards for the RMH kids with me. For more recent posts, please scroll down.


Stampin' Up! demonstrators and bloggers from everywhere are teaming up with Sherrill Graff to help fill a desperate need for handmade cards and blankets for the Ronald McDonald House Charities.

Most parents with sick children cannot afford to go to the gift shop to buy a gift for their child. Your cards would allow them to cheer up their children often during their stay. Most children are in ICU rooms, where flowers and balloons are not allowed – but cards are.

Please visit the blogs listed below for information on how we can help the Ronald McDonald Houses across the country.


RMHC – How you can help: 30 ways in 30 days

Sherrill’s Blog

We can all pitch in and do our part to help.

Here’s MY plan:

Contact me to set up a “play date” to make cards for the Ronald McDonald House here in Columbus, for Sherrill’s RMH in Nevada, or both. Unless you feel more comfortable using your own supplies, I will be happy to supply cardstock, ink, and stamps to be used in the making of these cards, as well as instructions / training in the event you are new to stamping. You can copy some cards I will have designed in advance, or you can come up with a card design of your own and stamp to your heart’s content. Have any stamps you don’t know what to do with? Bring them along and I’ll be glad to coach you with ideas on how to use your neglected rubber.

Not in the mood to make cards? We can decorate lunch bags! Ronald McDonald Houses make bagged meals available for the families of the sick children, and receiving them in a cheerfully decorated lunch bag can add such a bright spot to their difficult days.

If you’re seriously interested in doing either (or both) of these projects that are for such a worthy cause, please drop an email with your phone number and best time to reach you to stamperjoyce@aol.com. We’ll set up something that works with your schedule.

Many hands make light work, so consider bringing a friend along, too!
