HIS RADIO'S "HEARTS FOR KIDS"
Brightening Little Hearts with Valentines
For a kid, being sick and in the hospital on Valentine’s Day is about the worst thing to deal with. As we remember the joy of what Valentine’s Day has always brought to all of us as children, HIS Radio’s annual “Hearts For Kids” will again reach out with a simple way to express the love of Christ to these little ones. Every sick kid who has to be in the hospital on Valentines Day will not be forgotten this year.
HIS Radio teams will deliver cheer packets of homemade valentines cards and fun goodies to the children’s wards at these area hospitals:
North Carolina Children’s Hospital, Chapel Hill
Wake Med, Raleigh
Duke Children’s Hospital, Durham
Vidant/Maynard Children’s Hospital, Greenville
Betsy Johnson Memorial, Dunn
Cape Fear Valley Medical Center, Fayetteville
Nash General Hospital, Nashville
We need your help! Please get your family, office group, or church group together and create fun, uplifting cards to encourage these kids. Make them unique and creative! Please also be sure to see the list of safety and policy guidelines provided us by our Hospital partners as you make your cards.
Deadline to receive your cards and packets at our North Raleigh offices is Monday, Feb. 10th (postmark no later than Friday, Feb. 7th). Mail or hand deliver to:
HIS Radio--Hearts For Kids
7610 Falls of Neuse Rd, Suite 155
Raleigh, NC 27615
Here are some tips and requested guidelines as you're preparing your homemade packets:
--Wish the child a Happy Valentine's Day
--Please make your cards "gender neutral"
--Custom create original, "homemade" cards which come from your heart.
--Make your card cheerful, creative, and uplifting. Spend some time and thought on them!
--Let the child know you are thinking of them
--Tell the child you hope this helps put a smile on their face
Because children will come from a wide variety of social backgrounds and medical histories, the hospitals have also requested the following consideration that you keep in mind:
--No religious references such as "God Bless You", "I'm praying for you", etc. (this is a HOSPITAL policy that HIS Radio has agreed to abide by)
--No manufactured or "store bought" cards, please
--NO GLITTER of any type or loose attachments
--No references to "get well" or "hope you feel better".
--Please don't include your personal contact information
--We can also receive a portion of cards in Spanish, which will benefit Hispanic children
