HOW IT MAKES A DIFFERENCE
Making the cards makes you feel good because you're helping a child who has had to leave their home feel special. Sometimes, when a person is staying in a shelter, that place isn't even in their own neighborhood. And kids can really miss their friends from home. A friendly card makes them feel better.
Gotta Have Sole is a group that gives brand new sneakers to kids who are living in homeless shelters. Your job is to make one-of-a-kind cards using markers, stickers, and pencils and then write a friendly message on each one.
1. 5x7 Card stock paper
2. Magic markers, colored pencils, stickers and creativity!
If a creative card-maker is too young to write or draw a picture, they can use stickers, and an older child can help write the message on the back.
1. Your card will have two sides. On one side, draw a picture, or add stickers, glitter, or anything else you want.
2. On the other side, write a nice message like, "Have fun in your new sneakers!" or "You are special!" - anything that makes the person feel thought of and cared for.
