Christmas Cards for Addie

20141211_175331Most of us don’t think of sending a Christmas card as an act of kindness. But for Addie Fausett, Christmas cards are a BIG deal. We hear all the time that “I don’t send Christmas cards.” It is too time-consuming, I don’t have everyone’s addresses, I can’t get them done in time, and so on. But after reading this story, you’ll be hard-pressed to think of an excuse not to send a card to this little girl.

Addie is 6 years old, living in a small town in Utah, and suffering from an undiagnosed condition which has led to cerebral atrophy. Doctors have told her family that this is her last Christmas. So her family asked the public to send her what she has asked for this year: Christmas cards. Addie has received over 6,000 cards from people all over the world. The joy in her face when she opens one is enough to make you think twice about why we write cards, and the impact they can have.

We’ve written our own card to Addie and we ask that you write a Christmas card this holiday to Addie, or someone else in need of encouragement. There are plenty of organizations who write letters to soldiers overseas, sick children, or others needing a handwritten reminder of Christmas. The impact of your letter may never be known to you, but is felt by the recipient. Cards matter. Write one today.
