Another Long Update

It’s been a really rough 2016 on me personally and it’s not helping with trying to keep the website updated.

Some folks have asked- my mom is still in the hospital and will probably be in that type of facility for the rest of her life. She is in late stages COPD with a ton of other health issues such as a trach, dialysis, congestive heart failure, kidney failure and the last goes on and on. The other issue is that she is in a hospital that is about an hour away from me. I’m trying my best to keep C4K running smooth, while still working full time, raising a 9 year old and getting up to see mom as much as possible.

Sorry for the delay with the updates; I really do plan on doing better.

Last weekend we dropped off 45,000 cards to a great little charity in Lexington, Kentucky called – Keep In Touch – West End. They are a great little charity that work with kids in the Douglas Park area and the cards will going to great homes.


This brings our new total of cards donated to – 5,871,573 – 6 million is just around the corner!

While all of this has been going on, we have steadily been getting in amazing donations from all over THE WORLD!!! We got cards from states, we got cards from Japan…we got cards from Australia!!! We got contacted by a guy in China who wanted to let us know he sent cards through sea mail so we would be getting them in a month or so…….we got cards from ALL OVER THE WORLD!!!

The #C4KFamily never stops amazing me.

Let’s jump in and welcome all of the new folks to the #C4KFamily- your donations are greatly appreciated and we are already working on the next donation!
