You Can Help Make Valentine's Day Cards For Kids In Hospital

All over East Texas, children of all ages are making homemade valentine's cards for kids in East Texas hospitals. KLTV 7 met up with a group of young East Texans working hard to make this valentine's day special for others.

It's the season of love and about 70 home school kids were showing love today through work. Glueing, cutting, pulling ribbon, and writing notes of encouraging words.

"Get well friend. Jesus loves you," said Grace Hartnaer, "You are great, and I love you, and it's got a bunch of little things."

Making cards for other kids, kids who this Valentine's Day may need a little more love

"We are making valentines cards for kids in the hospital," said Grace, "We want to make them feel special and important even though they can be in the hospital and feel happy this Valentines Day."

Showing that love through flowers, hearts, stickers and more.

"I have already made two so this is my third one," said Sarah Buchanan.

Kids willing to miss a few minutes of P.E. to make as many cards as possible.

"We want them to feel a lot better and just to feel that we care for them," said Sarah.

Once they're finished, the valentines will go to children at Good Shepherd in Longview, East Texas Medical Center, Trinity Mother Frances in Tyler, and Truman Smith Children's Care Center in Gladewater.

"It can help reach out with God and let them know that he is there and everything is going to be alright," said Brady Gould ,"I think it will boost their spirits a little but it must be hard for them to be in the hospital on Valentine's Day and not at home."

Hoping to make other children's February 14th blessed. The project is put on by the KVNE/KGLY radio stations.

If you or your children would like to help by making valentines,

You can mail them to: P.O. Box 8525 Tyler, TX 75711

Drop off them off at The Scroll Christian Bookstore in Tyler, Lifeway in Tyler and Longview, and KVNE and KGLY studios

The deadline is February 12th.
