Cards 4 Cancer is April 10, 2010

I can't believe the delivery date is only a week away!

On April 10, 2010 MandyP of Suburban Stereotype and Team Stacy's Story will be delivering cards to the cancer patients of UPMC Mercy in Pittsburgh, PA.

Just a recap: We officially named our Team "Stacy's Story" after Joe's first wife who passed in 1998 from Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma.

Atria's Restaurant has graciously offered to be a drop-off location for cards. There are several locations around the Pittsburgh area. CLICK HERE to access Atria's website for locations.

As a reminder:

Joe and I are offering a $25 Wal-Mart gift card for the person(s) who donate the most cards. There are some guidelines to be eligible for this prize:

1. Only people donating 5 or more cards will be eligible (If you collect others' cards to drop off/mail, YOU will receive credit for all of the cards. For someone else to receive credit, they must drop off/mail their own cards.)

2. All cards MUST be dropped off at an Atria's location or received at the address below* BY April 8, 2010.

3. All card writing guidelines** must be followed.

4. Your name and email or phone number must be visible and affixed (yet removable, such as with a paper clip, rubber band or binder clip) to all of the cards you submit.

5. If there is a tie, whomever's cards are received first will be chosen.

6. Any batch of cards with multiple names will have to determine (among their own group) how to divide the $25 gift card.

Won't you join us? This is such a great cause. These people will be so appreciative. It's not really the cards that matter, but the time and effort that went into giving them the cards.

*Address to Mail Cards:

ATTN: Joe P.

103 Federal Street

Pittsburgh, PA 15212

**Card Writing Guidelines

-Cards should NOT be gender or age specific

-Please avoid phrases like "Get well soon" as; unfortunately, many will not get better.

-Inspirational messages such as "Thinking of You" or inspirational quotes are recommended.

-Cards without words are okay too-sometimes a drawing can raise someone's spirits.
