Cards for Hospitalized Kids


<< In Partnership with Volunteer Opportunities in NOVA


By DullesMoms, Nov 2018

Cards for Hospitalized Kids is an internationally recognized charitable organization that spreads hope, joy, and magic to hospitalized kids through uplifting, handmade cards.

Cards, distributed monthly, are sent to hospitals and Ronald McDonald Houses across the nation. Over 100,000 children in hospitals in all 50 states have received cards from Cards for Hospitalized Kids!

Daily/everyday cards are always needed, as well as cards for all major holidays, including:

• New Year’s
• St. Patrick’s Day
• Easter/Spring
• Halloween
• Thanksgiving
• Hanukkah
• Christmas
• and more!

Holiday cards can be sent at any time. There is no concern for sending them too early — only too late. In order to ensure enough time to distribute them, the preferred receipt of holiday cards is at least two weeks before the holiday. However, they can be accepted up to 7 days before, if necessary.

In addition to distributing cards in hospitals, Cards for Hospitalized Kids also sends cards to other seriously ill children. Know a child that could use an uplifting and unexpected treat? The community is invited to refer them here.
