You may recall this post where I wrote about super human being Eve Elzenga and her project, With Love from Friends, which provides artfully created Valentines to the elderly of our community who no longer have family in their lives.
(Couple of notes: the parts where I talked too fast and/or mumble – don’t worry, you didn’t miss anything. And I’ll slow down in the future, I promise. As I explain at the end, I’ll be buying a video camera so the quality will get better and more interesting. Allegedly.
Also – the part where I can’t remember a woman’s name – insert Katie.)
Here’s how are happy day went!
On to the photos.
Here’s the paper department I spoke of. (I can’t believe I said pre-made, in the video. What the hell does that even mean? They are made. Period.) The stack of paper on the chair is what Vickie and I brought with us. The top of the dresser in the background is full of paper too.
I checked the other entry I wrote about this and I see the official card making schedule has concluded, understandably. Eve’s goal for 2012 was 1500 cards I believe – that’s a lot to get organized for the various agencies by February 14.
If you would like to still contribute cards, cash, supplies, contact Eve Elzenga by email or phone: 585 733-2579.
Edited to add – Eve emailed me this morning in response to my sending the link to this post to her and Annette – she’ll accept cards anytime.
And be sure to join us in January 2013 – it’s already on my calendar!
