Howdy, Ohioans! :wave:

I'm posting this journal to see if there's any interest in helping out with deviantART's Holiday Card Project. This project aims to bring joy to those who are in the hospital for the holidays by distributing cards made by the deviantART community. We've been asking deviants to send these cards to our headquarters in Los Angeles, CA to be distributed to hospitals in the LA area.

However, since I'll be in Ohio for the holidays, I'm bringing a couple packs of cards with me to distribute at hospitals in Cleveland!

The days/times are not yet set in stone, but this is the tentative schedule:

:bulletblue: Elyria Memorial Hospital in Avon, Ohio - Friday, December 21st, around 1-3 PM.

:new: :bulletblue: Cleveland Clinic on Saturday, December 22nd at 12:30 PM.
Address:
Cleveland Clinic Children's Hospital- Shaker Campus
2801 Martin Luther King Jr. Dr.
Cleveland, OH 44104

If you can't come out but still want to be involved, send us a card! I go through the cards everyday hoping to see some Buckeye pride, but I've only seen a few so far. I know we can do better! ;) All the details on sending cards can be found here.

Let me know if you're interested in helping to distribute cards! I'll only be able to take a few with me to each hospital, so it's first come, first serve. We can also arrange a dinner/meal afterwards if there's interest. :)


P.S. How about those Bucks? What a great season! :woohoo:

Could I just send the cards I make to your parents' house instead of sending them all the way to CA first? I don't care about the one-month sub. You could note me the address and warn your mom a package is coming from Youngstown :aww:

I would love to do this with you guys, I'm in Cleveland.
But I'm only fourteen.
Would that be a problem?

Hey there! That's fine by me, as long as it's good with your guardian(s). :) I've updated the post with the time and address for the Cleveland Clinic hospital. Excited to see you there! :la:

Pretty much! I'll send you and some of the others who indicated interest a Note a few days before just to remind you and give you more details about parking and whatnot. If you want to bring your own card to give to the patients, feel free to bring one with you! :)

:B Now if you just moved Cleveland right next to Boston, I would be able to help, but since I don't think that's possible, I'll have to decline.

Ah, yeah, that would be a bit of a trek. :B No worries!

Also, I think I've seen quite a few of your cards come in, if I'm not mistaken. :D Thanks for sending them in!

Oh yeah, there's one thing I want to ask. :B My mom has started bitching that the four cards I'm putting in an envelope is "too much, and its too heavy" for just one stamp, are you guys getting those cards fine? I don't want to be putting too many cads in an envelope and somehow make dA pay for any difference.

=P Though I told my mom, if the envelopes are too heavy for one stamp, wouldn't the post office just send them back to me?

We've been receiving your envelopes with four cards in them just fine. :) I think the post office would just send it back, yeah. We haven't had to pay for them at all, to the best of my knowledge.

:lol: Don't expect to see the cards from me stop coming in any time soon. I have a lot of time off this week, so I should be able to get tons more cards done and ready to mail out.

I never thought to add Buckeye pride to a card! One question. Will the ones that feature Buckeyes be distributed strictly in Ohio/Cleveland? I don't want one getting to a sick Wolverine and making their day worse. :lol:

And great season indeed! Ready for next year already!

Haha, good point! I'll try to keep the Buckeye cards in the Ohio pile. Wouldn't want to kick a Michigan fan while they're down, especially after the last game. :lol:

I'm a bit of a haul from Cleveland. I'm more likely to drop cards in random places for people to find like a dork.

As for the Buckeyes... don't look at me, I'm a Bobcat (and holy crap I heard we actually won some this year??). =P Never really got into the OSU obsession. But then I don't really like sports to begin with. LOL
