wanna help us play cupid?
It’s that time of year again where we like to share some love by giving Valentine cards to the kids at The Children’s Hospital of Michigan. So we invite you to put your crafty hat on & whip up some sweet sentiments for kids who could use a smile on February 14th.
Here’s a few clever card ideas we found that were TOADally awesome…

We’ll be collecting and displaying your handcrafted cards at our Berkley & Rochester locations until February 12. And if you don’t live near by and want to participate, please send your cards to: catching fireflies 3117 W 12 Mile Berkley, MI 48072.
A note from The Children’s Hospital:
When making your cards, please consider not signing the cards so family members and/or staff could personalize the cards themselves and give them to the patients. It means more to the patients to receive a card from someone familiar vs. a stranger. The patients also like to be able to give cards to their family members or the nurses and staff caring for them.
As a thank you for bringing or sending in 3 or more cards, we’ll give you this joyful heart necklace with any purchase to thank you for helping us send smiles to kids who aren’t feeling too well. We may not be doctors or nurses, but we can still prescribe the best medicine around… LOVE.
Thanks again for helping us spread JOY & LOVE to those in our community!
