In celebration of Thinking of You Week 2022, we’ve rounded up a list of nonprofits that make incredible impact through various programs and that also accept handmade greeting card donations.
The donated cards are sent directly to homebound elderly residents, hospitalized kids, and cancer patients or provided to service members so they can write and send a greeting card home.
