Service Project
2018 Annual Meeting Service Project
Cards for hospitalized kids

Cards for Hospitalized Kids(CFHK) is an internationally recognized charitable organization that spreads hope, joy & magic to hospitalized kids across America through uplifting, handmade cards. Cards are distributed to kids monthly throughout the year.

There will be tables set up at Camp Shantituck in Denham House on Friday full of craft supplies to make cards. If you or your troop will not be attending annual meeting but would like to participate, simply create cards and send them to your local PLC. Below are the guidelines to follow when making cards.

You are welcome to use craft supplies, such as: stickers, stamps, etc., so long as the products are not excessive to the point of falling/rubbing off the card (this can create health concerns for some kids).  No glitter please.

Since we do not yet know the child's name, please make sure you do not address the card to a specific person.

At the request of hospitals, we ask you not to write "Get well", "Feel Better" or other illness related comments. It is important to write uplifting messages rather than "Get Well" or other illness focused comments.

We recommend writing the following uplifting messages: 

  • Stay strong
  • You are awesome
  • Never forget how amazing YOU are
  • You rock
  • I hope you have a great day today
  • You shine brighter than the sun
  • You inspire me
  • Be Brave
  • I believe in YOU

Remember to sign your first name and “Girl Scouts of Kentuckiana Troop #”

  • Do not include any personal information, such as: phone number, address, email address etc. 
  • Do not write any religious comments such as "God Bless" or "I'm praying for you."

 

Delegate Information

The Delegate Workbook will be posted in mid February.
