Get Crafty And Spread The Love Across Montana This Holiday
For some people, holidays can end up being the one of the loneliest days of the year. I'm talking about senior citizens, veterans and little ones that are sick or in the hospital right here in Montana.
You can make a big difference
Imagine being the reason a veteran doesn't feel invisible, or an elderly woman doesn't feel forgotten, or the reason a sick child smiles. You can be that person. There are several ways you can make a difference with just one little card with a warm, happy message.
What you can do
Get a few stamps and gather your favorite crafters and make some special and personalized cards.
Keep in mind who you're sending them to and make the message match. I found 3 Montana organizations that will make sure you're sentiment gets to the person who needs it the most.
Where to send the cards
If you'd like to make the day of a veteran, you can send your greetings to The Montana Veterans Foundation, 1112 Leslie Avenue, Helena, 59601. They help out veterans who may be homeless, recovering from addiction or need life skills training.

Make the day special for a senior citizen. You can send your card to the local assisted living center where you live or drop them off. You can also send your good wishes to Caring Transitions, PO Box 1046, Stevensville, Montana, 59870. Once a month they pick a senior community, rally the community to make cards and make a delivery. You can be a part of that joy.
No child should ever spend one second in a hospital, let alone a holiday. Make their day by sending a loving homemade card. You can send your good wishes to Shodair Children's Hospital, PO Box 5539, Helena, Montana 59604. There's nothing like making a child smile.
