Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Who can make a card?
A: Anyone that wants to make a difference in a patient’s life can make cards for us :) Our youngest participants have been a few month old babies(helped by their parents). We request anyone who is making the cards, to wash their hands well before making them and keep them hygienic. If you or anyone around you is sick, then please wait to make cards till you are all better.
Q: How do we send cards?
A: Cards can be sent to our PO box or locally coordinated through our Facebook or Instagram page. To keep the cards safe, consider putting them in Ziploc before mailing them. If you would like to send envelopes, we would appreciate that you keep them separate. (Yes, we read through each card before we send them out!!! They bring us smiles too :)
Our Mailing address is
Project Smile AZ
P.O. Box 10477
Q: What should be written in the cards?
A: Anything that you think is inspirational can be put in the cards to make a difference in someone's world :) Write Uplifting messages like
You are amazing
You are awesome
We believe in you
We often use inspiring life quotes from famous people in quotation marks. Please avoid including religious or faith based quotes or ‘sending prayers’, as they may not be acceptable to all patients.
You can find many creative ideas on 100s of posts on our FB and IG page.
Most of all, just be you! And spread Smiles :) :) :)
It would be awesome if you can sign your cards with your first name and place ( like John from Scottsdale) and /or Project Smile AZ.
