MAKING CARDS

Here is all the information needed to help you with making cards!

 

CARD MAKING GUIDE

Step-by-step guide on how to make cards for Cards for Bravery!

General Information: 

Our cards go to a range of different hospitals in the UK as well as children who are being cared for at home or in a hospice.

Making cards is a simple and can a matter of minutes yet the impact is huge. 

We also sometimes send cards to elders who are in hospital as they are often isolated and do not have many visitors.

NO Envelopes are needed to be sent with your cards.

GATHER SUPPLIES

Get your card supplies sorted - cards, pens, pencils, glue, decorations, and any other card material you would like to use for making your cards!

DECORATE THE CARDS

The front of your card can contain an inspiring message, colourful pattern, bright picture or any other creative idea you can think of! When writing in the card we ask for a positive, uplifting message that will help brighten up a patients day in hospital. Make it colourful, eye-catching; a work of art!

SIGNING THE CARDS

When signing in the card, please do not include any personal information such as your email, address, telephone number and more. We ask that you sign the card with: 'Love, Cards For Bravery’

You can write your first name and age (i.e: Izzie, age 15) on the back of your card. This makes the card more personalised and reminds the patient an individual person is thinking of them.

MAILING THE CARDS

After you have created your cards, the most important part is making sure they get to us so we can help make the difference! When you are ready to mail the cards to us, please send them to address:

At Cards for Bravery, we are always looking for celebratory cards as it can be very difficult for children to spend these holidays at the hospital. We are therefore always asking for cards for children's birthdays and Christmas cards to make their time all the more special during these hard times as the littlest things like a card really do make a difference.

For these cards, we request the same requirements as general cards - the only difference is we ask for a more holiday touch!

We ask to not use 'Get Well Soon' as some patients will have chronic, life-long or terminal illnesses. We also ask you to refrain from using any religious messages.
