I Feel the Love Project- Nov/Dec 2014

It is already that time of the year again, time to start collecting holiday cards for kids that will be spending time in the hospital during the holidays! In the past, this has been one of the biggest collections and we cannot wait to get lots and lots of cards to send to these special kids :)  We like to spread the love all over the country and this holiday season we are honoring a fabulous children's hospital in Chattanooga, Tennessee.  

November/December 2014 I Feel the Love Project

From Children's Hospital at Erlanger:
"Children's Hospital at Erlanger is the sort of full-service facility usually found only in very large cities. The Neonatal Intensive Care Unit is designated Level III by the state, providing the very highest level of care for premature or sick newborns. The Pediatric Trauma Team, Emergency Department and Pediatric Intensive Care Unit provide immediate, 24-hour-a-day care for critically ill or injured children. 

Erlanger LifeForce Air Ambulance and the Neonatal/Pediatric Ground Transport make the services of Children's Hospital quickly accessible to pediatric patients throughout our region. No other facility in our region offers these services."

Feeling the Love for Lily- September 2014

We at the I Feel the Love Project sincerely hope that you have been enjoying your summer!  We cannot believe that September is here.  A big thank you to everyone who has been supporting the I Feel the Love Project month after month.

This month we would like to honor a young girl who is battling ALL Leukemia.  Her name is Lily and here is her story:


On June 17th 2014 while visiting her father, Lily was diagnosed with ALL Leukemia.  Lily started chemotherapy June 18th and has had her mother and grandmother by her side the entire time.  She has received tons of love and support from her family and friends, but is already tired of being poked and measured. 

Lily's main interests/likes include: Disney, the color purple, glitter and art, and Monster High. 

Please join us as we create handcrafted cards for this amazing little girl. We would like to create signed cards of support, as well as cards that say thinking of you or anything that suggests love and encouragement.  Please consider joining us this month!

I Feel the Love Project- August 2014

You might not know this, but September is National Grandparents month.  We thought it would be a terrific idea to honor seniors during this month by selecting an assisted living facility as our August I Feel The Love Project cards recipient.  We will collect cards in August to send out in September just in time for National Grandparent's Day!


Wynwood of McMinnville provides Personalized Assisted Living and Alzheimer’s Care options for seniors.  Personalized service plans are reviewed regularly by staff to ensure that they meet the changing needs of their residents. Their trained staff is there to assist with personal needs – bathing or showering, selection of clothing, dressing assistance, grooming, hygiene, mobility and transferring and dining assistance – 24 hours a day. 

Integral to life at Wynwood are the programs, outings and opportunities they offer to their residents. Their philosophy is to incorporate not only resident’s individual interests, but opportunities that allow them to make meaningful contributions to each other and the community on a regular basis.

Please join us as we create handcrafted cards for the amazing elderly people who utilize this facility. We would like to create signed cards of support, as well as cards that say thinking of you or anything that suggests love and encouragement.  Please consider joining us this month!

I Feel the Love Project- May 2014

Welcome to Funky Cards

Our recipients continue to want to pay it forward, so the I Feel the Love Project would like to shine a light this month on a sweet little girl that Maddy (March 2014) and her family met while undergoing treatment in the hospital. 


Please join us as we create handcrafted cards for Violet and her family, the May 2014 I Feel the Love Project card recipients. Maddy's mother shared that this family can really use our love and support right now.  Please consider joining us this month!
  

In June of 2013, Violet was diagnosed with infant leukemia (acute lymphoblastic leukemia) when she was just 10 months old. She is an amazing little girl who is the youngest of three other siblings. She loves making silly faces with her brothers and sister, playing peekaboo, and chowing down on delicious bread products! 

Violet is currently receiving chemotherapy and blood transfusions at a local hospital. She has already had two surgeries to prepare her for her treatments. Her family lives an hour away from the hospital. When her at-home care begins, they will still return to the hospital for treatment throughout the month. Her prognosis is promising, but she and her family have a long road ahead of them that will last at least two years.

We will be collecting cards for Violet, but if you would like to include a card for her parents that would be great! The cards can be signed and it is always fun to include where you are from in your card.

Big Smiles from Maddy!

Maddy was one happy girl when we went to  visit her to bring her the gifts you all made.  Her smile just lights up the room doesn't it?  She couldn't wait to open the cards and have her mom read them to her!

Beautiful piece of art!

Love the flowers!

 Adorable finger puppets!

Cards for Maddy!

And more cards!

Thank you again to everyone who contributed to this project.  Maddy was so grateful that she wants to make cards for the at-risk children from Tennyson Center for Children, this month's recipients.  Join Maddy in creating birthday or thinking of you cards for the kids.  All you have to do is:

I Feel the Love Project - April 2014


Because April is National Child Abuse Prevention month, the I Feel the Love Project would like to shine a light this month on a fabulous nonprofit center that works with abused, neglected, and at-risk children.  Please join us as we create handcrafted cards for Tennyson Center for Children, the April 2014 I Feel the Love Project card recipient.

"At Tennyson Center for Children kids suffering from abuse, neglect, emotional crises and other traumatic experiences will get the help they need while finding healing and HOPE in a safe and caring environment. Our varied programs build trust, offer support, encourage loving, caring, healthy relationships, and teach kids just how precious they are." (taken from the Tennyson Center for Children home page).

Programs at Tennyson Center for Children include: Residential Treatment, Day Treatment, Education Programs, Community-Based and Special Home-Based Services, Outpatient Therapy, and other programs.  

We will be collecting birthday cards for the children.  In addition, we are looking for cards that could be given out when a child, or even a staff member, is having a difficult day (cheer up theme).  The center can keep all these cards on hand to hand out at the appropriate time.  Our hope is to shower this center with lots of cards that they can give out to the amazing young people they work with.

Love this Update!!




The I Feel the Love Project received a thank you card in the mail this week.  It was from Claire Koreck and her family.  Claire was the March 2013 recipient of the IFTL Project cards.  As you can see on her sign, Claire is now cancer free after battling bone cancer!!

If you think that creating cards for those in need doesn't matter, check out what Claire's mom had to say about Claire receiving the cards from the I Feel the Love Project:
"...I am writing to you to let you know how much those amazing and beautiful hand made cards meant to Claire and our entire family.  They are special, magical, and filled with love, and we appreciate your kindness more than you could ever know.  We told her that the cards were in a box under her bed so that all those well wishes and prayers would protect her while she slept. They are still there!"
It is an amazing feeling to know that the card you donate can have that much impact on a sick child's life.  This is all the inspiration I need to continue to send cards to our recipients each month and I hope this message from Claire's mom has inspired you to join us as we create handcrafted cards for those in need of love and support.

For those of you who don't know how the I feel the Love Project works, we choose a monthly recipient to receive handcrafted cards from individuals all over the world.  To see some of our previous honorees, click HERE.  We have been sending handcrafted cards to individuals and groups since June of 2011.  It is our goal to be able to expand our efforts to include sending gift cards.  We would like to be able to send parents of hospitalized children to lunch, or help them with gas money... We also envision sending gift cards to others who are reeling from a natural disaster.  

We cannot do this without your help.  We rely completely on donations from caring individuals like you.  The IFTL Project is run entirely by volunteers and thus there are no paid staff members.  Donated funds go to help offset the cost of postage, which is one of the biggest monthly expenses, as well as the cost of running the project (i.e., filing fees, advertising, website...). For the past two and a half years, this project has been funded almost entirely by the President, Madison Womack, and her family.  Due to the fact that the project is growing, additional funds are needed to keep it going and growing!!

With that, I am pleased to announce that the IFTL Project finally received the letter that we have been waiting for since August of 2012!  It is official, the I Feel the Love Project is now a tax exempt, 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation.  We are over the moon with this as it will now make it possible for us to start fundraising efforts with this status.

(click to enlarge)

We would appreciate it if you could spread the word. Perhaps you can share this information with friends on your social media sites. There may be individuals out there who may not participate by sending in a handcrafted card, but perhaps these same people would consider sending $5 to further our cause.
