Volunteers Needed...


As some of you may know, I am a Chemo/Senior Angel.
A few years ago, my friend Shirley, kept talking about sending cards and little gift packages,
as part of an Angel program.
After asking her some questions, I decided that this was a program that I wanted to be
a part of.  I have more cards than I can donate, mail, or sell in any given month,
and I love to do nice things for others, so I signed up.
What a blessing it's been to send weekly greetings to someone undergoing 
Chemo treatments, or to lonely senior citizens that need a smile.

As you will see in the notice I've cut and pasted below, they are in need of
volunteers.  If any of you cardmakers need a nice way to use those cards you create,
please consider this organization.

There are a few options you can choose - you can become 'just' a card angel, sending cards and an occasional gift, only.  You can become a Chemo angel, sending cards AND gifts.
You can choose to work with Chemo folks, or seniors, and you can choose man, woman, or child.
You can work with any race or religious preference....these folks will match you up with someone you feel comfortable working with.

One thing that you need to know before applying - this is something that you do with absolutely NO promise of anything in return.  Sometimes, you will get a nice note from your 'buddy', or a member of their family, but most times, you just send and send, and never hear a thing. It's a true RAK, and I think that is what makes it so fulfilling.

Anyway, here is the link - please consider checking them out and becoming a fellow angel!

New Volunteers Needed
Both Chemo Angels and Senior Angels are growing at a rapid pace right now, and we are in great need of new volunteers. If you know anyone who would make a great angel, please share our website,,  and invite them to apply.  We appreciate your help! 

Thanks for stopping by,
Patti J.
