An emphatic "THANK YOU" to all of the incredible Card Maker Magazine readers who have responded SO generously to their Fall 2011 issue of Readers Reach Out column.

The Kyrie Foundation was fortunate enough to be included in this issue's column, and consequently, we now have beeee-autifully handmade thank you cards to give our hospital families to use for their own needs.

Can you believe this!!!!???!!
We are in awe over the packages that are pouring in from Alabama, Oregon, South Dakota, Pennsylvania, California, Wisconsin, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Virginia, West Virginia, Iowa, New York, Michigan, Illinois, Texas, Florida, Tennessee ... INCREDIBLE!

When a family is in need, so often does the community of friends and family respond with casseroles, child care, visits, lawn care, prayers, donations—you name it. And in turn, families want to acknowledge those acts of kindness with thank you notes, but are often confined to the hospital. You, dear Card Maker readers, have completed this do-good circle by offering something so special held within the fold of each card. You have supplied something meaningful in order to convey what kindnesses have meant to them. They will give what you gave. Isn't that miraculous?

So, again, thank you so much for this extra-special way of supporting the cause and offering your talent with such generosity. AMAZING!
