Send them to Sam!!!!!

Send them to Sam is a card campaign.
I am challenging everyone to help little Sam fight Cancer. Sam is a wonderful and strong 5 year old boy. His battle with Cancer is just beginning. He was diagnosed with Stage 3 Lymphoma this week. He has a very tough fight ahead of him. I would love everyone to join me in helping Sam fight this and WIN! Sam will be in the hospital for many months. I am starting a campaign to fill his days with tons of cards from all over the globe. What fun for Sam to know that people from all sides of the Earth are supporting and thinking about him. I am going to give him a map book and a ton of stickers. He will put a sticker on each location that his cards come from. How awesome would it be to cover the whole Earth with stickers from people supporting Super Sam. This will be a great adventure for Sam to watch the LOVE and SUPPORT from every corner of the globe. Lets each set a personal goal of one card a month, one card a week, or one card a day.
Keep them coming so he never stops looking forward to the next card delivery.


It is with a humble heart, I ask for your support in this Send Them to Super Sam campaign. I will provide updates from time to time to let you all know how Super Sam is winning his battle over Cancer. When he is victorious over Cancer we can all celebrate together in honor of the wonderful and brave Super Sam! I welcome anyone and everyone to join Pixie Dust Studio in the Send Them to Sam Card Campaign! Please take this blog blinkie and post it and link it back to the Pixie Dust Studio Super Sam link. Help pass this Campaign message along..lets spread the word, lets share the news. Cards are needed to help a little boy and his battle with Cancer!

Please send Cards and well wishes t0....

It would also be great fun to include the Super Sam image on the inside, back or envelope or mention SUPER SAM ...that way Sam will know that he is a Superhero and he can win this fight!

I would love if you would leave a quick comment below if you are joining this campaign.:) Also, please grab the Super Sam blog blinkie on the sidebar and spread the news that there is a NEW SUPERHERO in town and he needs our HELP!!

Blessing and Hugs to everyone for your time and effort in this important mission!!

just a quick comment. How bout making Super Sam image a free digi and then we could make a card with his image for him. I would love to do that.

Georgina said...

I will absolutely send him a card. Have you ever heard of the story about Craig Shergold? He is a friend of mine, we are the same age. He had brain cancer when he was 8 years old. He is now 30. He overcome it. He too was spurred on by get well cards. Sadly they are still coming and he is now a bit of an urban legend, although he is thankfully alive! Little Sam will beat this. Please pass on my thoughts to his family too and I recommend Marion Shergolds book for them to read too.

Renee said...

What a sweet and thoughtful idea. Only one question-how do we get the blinkie? Also, great idea about making Super Sam a free digi stamp, Mary S.

Jennifer said...

I will be sending Sam a card. Can't imagine what that family is going through. They will be in my prayers.

Kathy said...

Thank you to all the wonderful support in our Send them to Sam campaign!!

If you want to send Sam the "Super Sam" image..please send me an email and I will attach the digi to you! It would be great fun if Sam would get cards with the SS image and other images also. The more the better!!:)

CraftyGirl said...

This is a wonderful idea! My daughter started a group a couple of years ago called Kids Give Back... I will have everyone from that group make a card as well... I am sure he would like to receive a card from some other kids!!

I will send Sam a card!

Lisa B said...

I just grabbed this logo and I am going right now to post this on my blog. It tears me up to know that a child so young is fighting something no child should. It is heartbreaking so I defintely would send him cards...that's the least I could do!

Lori said...

What a great idea. I am posting this on my blog and will definitely be sending SUPER SAM many cards!

Scrappychick said...

So glad you are doing this for Sam! I will definitely send him so love and hugs and prayers by way of a card!! His logo is in my sidebar.

Melanie said...

Wow what an awesome thing you are doing. I'll be sending love from PA.

Melanie said...

Do you have an image that can be purchased to support Sam and his family financially?

Kathy said...

Melanie, thank you so much for your support. I was also thinking of illustrating a special image for a fundraiser. Just need to figure out how to go about it, seeing that I have never offered a digi for charity before. I know the family is paying large bills as Sam's mother is currently fighting breast cancer also.:( Bless them as they are so strong and solid yet have thing ordeal going on!!

Alison (Groovycrafter) said...

i HAVE POSTED TO BOTH MY BLOG'S...

Lori said...

Kathy,
I would love the digi Sam image but I couldn't see where to email you to request it. My email is:
lpadberg@sbcglobal.net
BTW...put my first card in the mail to Sam today. A very friendly monster wishing him a happy day. :)

Margaret said...

What a wonderful thing to do. I plan on sending him a card. Thank you for doing this.

I'm taking the blinke and adding it to my blog.

Renee said...

Here's another thought. Would it be possible to make a Super Hero as a girl, so that I can make cards for both boys and girls and bring them to our local hospital? Let me know-thanx

Gina Thornton said...

I will definitly be sending Sam a card!
By any chance to we have Sams's mom's name as well? I saw above that she is also battling cancer, and thought she could use some encouragement as well.

Roberta Laliberte said...

What a wonderful idea! I will post a link on my blogs!

xoxoxox

Kathy said...

I can not tell you how great it is to know all these cards are going to Super Sam! What a blessing you all will be in his days ahead!!

His mom reported that he was so excited today to get cards from Austria and Belgium and three from Missouri!

Keep them coming and thank you from the bottom of my heart!

Vicky said...

I will DEFO be sending Sam a card from the UK & I will keep him in my thoughts every day & wish him well. I have family members who are battling cancer at the moment & its a hard battle especially for a 5 year old. I wish him strength, courage & will & I will pray for this sweet little guy.

Lots of hugs to Super Sam

firefly said...

I think you should start a Super Sam FACEBOOK page too where he can get comments from around the world and people can be updated on how he's doing!!

monsoonmaddie said...

My nearly two year old nephew, Cash was recently diagnossed with brain cancer. I completely understand what you're going through.. It's tough. Really tough. But i know that the help and support of kind strangers helps a tremendous ammount. I will be sure to send a card. I'm praying for him. I hope these two boys will fight and win this battle against cancer.

God bless you and your family. And of course little Sam.
