HOW IT MAKES A DIFFERENCE

Hope Kits contain items like soap, shampoo, deodorant and toothpaste for kids and other young people who may not be able to afford these items. By creating special cards to accompany the kits, you provide a little extra something to bring a smile and to let people know that people care about their well being.

DESCRIPTION

Spread smiles by sharing your art or a few words of encouragement. Small cards made of a half-sheet of folded construction paper are inserted in our Hope Kits. Each card features a drawing or a quick positive message. Create hope by creating cards for kits!


ITEMS NEEDED

1. Construction paper or similarly colored paper / card stock

2. Markers or crayons


SPECIAL REQUIREMENTS
