Writing cards for Amy's Rays of Sunshine

Save to Favorites


Recruiting Organization: Amy's Rays of Sunshine

You can help Amy's Rays of Sunshine by volunteering to host a card drive, or write a handwritten card yourself and send it in to be included in Rays of Sunshine boxes for young adult patients going through bone marrow transplants. Tips about what to write within the cards are listed below.

Unused cards that are blank on the inside are also appreciated. They should have text on the outside front cover such as 'thinking of you," "hope you have a good day," or even just "hello" or be decorative cards. They can also have inspirational quotes on them.

Here is the information about what to write inside the handwritten cards:

Tips for writing your Rays of Sunshine card

• Please keep cards encouraging and uplifting. Some patients will be experiencing a long duration of treatment and unknown outcomes.

o Please avoid phrases like "Get well soon" or "Feel better"

• Please avoid giving medical advice or treatment suggestions

• Cancer does not discriminate by gender, beliefs, or race and neither do we! Please keep your cards inclusive to all.

• You are welcome to include inspiring quotes, funny jokes (humor is always appreciated!), or little pieces of yourself.

• Here are some great examples of messages:

o Stay strong

o You are awesome

o I hope you have a good day

o You are amazing

o You are brave

o I believe in you

• Feel free to write as much or as little as you want and include your first name and where you're from if you're comfortable doing so. Cards and messages can be short or long - anything is appreciated!

Completed cards can be mailed to:
