One of my favorite charities is Bring Smiles to Seniors. This is a grass roots organization that started out when founder, Ron Tyson, realized there were many elderly at the nursing home his grandmother was residing in, that didn’t receive cards, calls or visitors. He took it upon himself to change that, and Bring Smiles to Seniors was born. In the past year and a half, he’s delivered over 16,920 cards to several facilities! That’s incredible! They have two offices, one in Florida and one in Michigan.
How can you help?
- If you are a card maker, they welcome handmade cards that are either blank or have messages written inside.
- We also welcome store-bought cards that are either blank or have messages written inside them, postage stamps and stickers.
- Monetary donations can be made via credit card on their website via PayPal or on Facebook.
Which ever you decide, follow them on Facebook and see what they awesome things they are up to! The seniors really appreciate it!
p.s. They even send lovely thank you cards to the handmade card makers and feature them on their Facebook because they are just so nice like that!
