The next program is Comfort Cards.  This is where they take donated signed card from anyone who signs and send them and they ask that you please put your state on the card and send a few kind words they are always looking for Thank You cards and Thinking of you Cards and at Christmas they are looking for Christmas Cards But You can send any of these Cards at any given time through out the year and if it is not Christmas time or if the Christmas deadline has passed don't worry they will hold on to them until the following year.  No Cards go to waste.  If you have some Cards laying around and want to put them to some good use get them out and spend some time this week around the table with the family and fill out some cards and then send them to
