Please Read and Please Do As asked
First of all I want to thank all of you that have sent in cards for the program Cards 4 Kids, the outpouring of talent has been totally amazing. I do have a problem that I need to address and that is this....I have received many boxes and envelopes that once opened I am hit with the odor of cigarette smoke that is lingering on the cards. The problem is many of the sick children have respiratory difficulties and for them to receive a card that could further impare their breathing is just not a safe issue for them to deal with. So, if you are a smoker and are making cards for this program, I would appreciate as would the staff and the hospital, that you would not smoke in the area of your crafting. I know that those of you that smoke are not aware that this smoke odor stays with the papers. Thanks for listening and please try to adhere to this small request. I am trying to air out the smoke odor so these cards can get to the little ones who love getting them. Pat, and all at Children's Hospital of Michigan.
