View Full Version : M.A.C.S. For April

04-04-2008, 08:04 AM
:D Hello Everyone and thank you for visiting the new thread for our April M.A.C.S.

This will be my first time hosting the M.A.C.S. each month and I hope you will be patient with me as I get into the swing of things.

As you know the children at M.A.C.S. are very special and they are such special angels. We love to imagine the smile on their little faces as they open up a package or envelope from people around the world that have taken time to send them something special. It can be anything you feel like sending them from a envie of Artist Trading Cards to a package of coloring books to stickers. You can spend as much or as little money as you wish, it is the thought that counts for these little ones. Some of these children have siblings so feel free to send something to them also.

( http://www.makeachildsmile.org/featured_kids.shtml )

There will be 3 names posted each month, you can send to 1 or 3 this is totally up to you. Just be sure when you sign up that you stick to it and keep your word.


1. Sign up by posting to the thread and let me know what child or chidren you will be sending too.
2. You MUST have these in the mail by the end of the month ( example - I am posting this today on April 4, have this in the mail by April 30 )

Thanks Jad!

My work has the MACS site blocked and called it a "Political/Activist Group"....that's sad. :(

04-04-2008, 10:15 AM
That is sad Merricat - I can't imagine anyone not wanting to do something nice for a child that is sick or other wise.

Do you want to sign up Merricat? I can email you the info for whatever child/children you wish.

04-04-2008, 10:20 AM
Yes please Robin - I was going to look at one of the younger kids to see if they liked something I'd be able to draw. Sign me up for Emilio :):) Thanks Robin!

04-04-2008, 10:32 AM
Thanks Merricat - I will get you that info soon.

04-04-2008, 10:40 AM

04-04-2008, 02:06 PM
Take care Robin! They're already closing schools here - be sure you're safe!!! I can't believe it's already April - Tornado Month!!!!

04-04-2008, 07:15 PM
The bad weather seems to have passed us by - thanks goodness, I hate this time of year to Merricat.

Sounds great Kosmopooch - I will sign you up know~

Anyone else? You still have 8 days to get something in the mail, just post to the thread.

04-25-2008, 12:17 AM
Maybe someone should try to recruit participants out of the Lounge or something? I only ran across this thread by accident, so I'm sure a lot of others are unaware of it!

04-25-2008, 08:15 AM
I posted a thread like that once and was told it was spam and couldn't advertise like that so I can only remind people that it is here that is all.
Thanks anyway~

Most recent Update on Emmie - 4/18/08 Emmie is declining in health and there's nothing else that doctors can do for her.
Poor baby!!! I'm sending her something special!!!

Hey Robin maybe if the members posted a link in their signature it would help to bring more in. Wonderful Job dear!!! I'm very proud!! Hugs Jena

04-25-2008, 12:46 PM

Mailed my package friday! Shoebox full of coloring books, crayons, stickers, card games....I went nuts! I think having a son the same age as my little MACS friend really affected me.
