Hosting a Card-Making Event for CFHK
Card-making events are a great way to have fun and give back at the same time. The nice thing about hosting your own card-making event is that you are entirely in control; the event can be as big or small as you wish. Over the years, there have been all different size card-making events for CFHK--from large scale corporate events with hundreds or thousands of people, to small community gatherings and everything in between!
Corporate companies, small businesses, schools and colleges, Girl Scout and Boy Scout troops, sororities and fraternities, hotels, community organizations, sports teams, extra-curricular groups and churches, among others, are a few of the many individuals and groups that have made a difference in the lives of hospitalized kids by hosting their own CFHK card-making event.
Often, national companies opt to host card-making events at several of their locations rather than a centralized event. Examples include: LabCorp, Target, Bank of America, Wells Fargo, Hershey, Anytime Fitness and more.
If you wish to host your own event, there are a couple things you need to plan. The checklist of things you need to plan can be downloaded below.
If you would like any supportive materials for your event, such as a CFHK Fact-Sheet photos of card-receiving kids, media videos + articles on CFHK, etc., please contact us.
You're also welcome to use the CFHK Logo in promotion of your event on social media or in flyers / promo materials. If you'd like assistance with designing a graphic and/or a flyer for your event, please email team member Nina.
If you'd like our help informing local media of your event and/or crafting a press release for your event, please also email Nina at Nina@CardsForHospitalizedKids.com.
After the event, you can mail the cards to our headquarters to be distributed to hospitals. We will also send you a thank you note in the mail.
Since the onset of the pandemic, some schools and companies have opted to host virtual card-making events via "Zoom". After the virtual event, they typically send the cards in to CFHK individually or together in one shipment.
Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions.
