Press Release Body: Dallas, TX, May 9, 2008 - St. Jude is unlike any other pediatric treatment and research facility anywhere. Discoveries made here have completely changed how the world treats children with cancer and other catastrophic diseases. In an effort to add a little sunshine to the lives of St. Jude patients, the members of the Cricut user community are collecting donations of handmade cards. Some of the cards will be given to the children and others will be donated to the hospital gift shop to help raise additional research dollars.
There are currently over 300 members involved, with more signing up every day. As a way to encourage participation, the group is offering four grand prize \'thank you\' drawings, sponsored in part by Scrapbooking Supplies Etc. by CropJunkie.com. Card makers will receive one entry in the drawing for each card donated. The prize package consists of hundreds and hundreds of scrapbooking, card making and other crafting supplies donated by members of the Cricut message board and online scrapbooking supplies retailers including Scrapbooking Supplies Etc.by CropJunkie.com, Sweet \'n Sassy Stamps and ScrapYourTrip.com
\"It is not too late to join in this project. Each card sent in equals one ticket in the drawing. You can also donate prize items and those will each get you one ticket in the drawing as well,\" said project co-developer Marcia Fix.
The group expects to deliver more than 5,000 hand made cards to St. Jude Hospital in Memphis on July 12, 2008. The grand prize drawing will also be held on July 12.
\"St. Jude\'s does so much to help children and their families from all over the world regardless of their personal, financial, ethnic, or religious backgrounds,\" said project co-developer Carol Gough Lust \"This is our opportunity to help them in their efforts.\"
If you would like to participate in the Cards for Kids project benefiting St. Jude Children\'s Research Hospital by either creating and donating hand made cards or by donating thank you prizes for the participants, please contact Carol Gough Lust at CarolDGough@aol.com. The donation deadline is June 20. 2008.
