Make Birthday Cards

From your very own home, you can also make birthday cards for the over 1500 kids we send them to annually. Each month the Foundation mails out handmade birthday cards to children in foster care. We want them to know that someone remembered their special day and a handmade card gives a personal touch that can bring a smile to a child’s face. It is truly a highlight for our kids! And it’s super easy. Have your class, family or scout troop be creative and make someone smile!

Here are the instructions:

  • Please use 8.5″x11″ card stock (white or color) and fold in half horizontally.
  • Cards should not have any names on them (no “to” or “from” [name]).
  • The cards should read “Happy Birthday!” on the outside and “Have a Great Day” on the inside. It’s best to stick to these simple and cheerful greetings.
  • Gender neutral cards are encouraged.
  • Be creative and use color generously!
  • Please do not apply things that stick up on the card, as the cards need to be flat for mailing purposes.
  • Mail the cards to our address or drop off during business hours:
    • 2265 Lee Rd Suite 203 Winter Park, FL 32789
