A Special Thank You

We wanted to say a special thank you to the amazing girls from Junior Girl Scout Troop 107!  These amazing children sent us 100 cards to deliver to the children who will be spending Christmas in the hospital.


What warms our hearts so much is that these girls have made cards for the I Feel the Love Project in the past and this year they asked their leaders when they could make cards again for the sick children.  How sweet is that?  Thank you go much girls.  You are a true blessing to this project and to all the kids who will receive your cards.  We appreciate you so much!!  

Have a Merry Christmas and a blessed New Year.

A Very Merry Christmas to the kids in Tennessee!

Well, you did it again!  Another box of cards is now officially on its way to our latest recipients.  The kids in Tennessee are going to feel the love soon enough as once again the followers of the I Feel the Love Project selflessly designed, created, and donated their talents and sent more than enough cards so that every child that spends Christmas in Children's Hospital at Erlanger will be able to receive a special Christmas card of their own.  

A great big thank you goes out to the amazing ladies that send cards to our special recipients each month.  These women create the most beautiful cards and each one is a blessing to our recipients.  

We love you all so much.  Thank you to:

Clarissa 
Elaine 
Karen 
Lynnette 
Migdalia
Pam
We hope everyone that sees this blog has a very safe, amazing, and blessed Christmas.  If you want to join these fabulous women and send cards to the IFTL Project, look for our new post on January 1, 2015 as we announce  January 2015 recipient.

Gob Bless you all :)

Many Thanks

Thanksgiving is just a couple of weeks away and we at the I Feel the Love Project have so much to be grateful for.  We can't say thank you enough to those of you who contribute to our cards for causes projects each month.  We put out a call for Thanksgiving cards last month so that we could get them in time to take to a senior care facility.

You rose to the occasion once again and over 70 cards came in.  We will once again be able to hand out a card to each and every senior at this care facility.  Thank you so much to:

Karen, Lynnette, Pam, Clarissa, Lee, Migdalia, Elaine, and the amazing seniors at Chancellor Village.

We couldn't have done this without you.  We love and appreciate each and every one of you.  God bless you  and have a wonderful week.

Nov/Dec 2014- I Feel the Love Project

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.

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



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.
