Haute Note has just donated 200 Christmas cards to The Christmas Card Collective, and we’d like to tell you a little about Erin Schulte and her Collective. When we heard about it, we just couldn’t jump fast enough to be part if it!
It all began three years ago when Erin started writing Christmas cards for the homeless, distributing over 300 cards on her own with the help of family and friends.
The next year, it grew to a few thousand.
And now, THIS year – her goal is 10,000! AMAZING!
We first heard about her on Global TV… https://globalnews.ca/news/6179936/north-delta-christmas-card-collective-canadian-us-shelters/ …and then found the Christmas Card Collective on Facebook… (link below). We encourage YOU to check it out too! This year is a pretty huge undertaking. But it looks like she’s well on her way, by enlisting the help of school children, sports organizations, church groups – anyone that wants to help!
Time is of the essence! If you’d like to be part of this heart-warming initiative, grab or make some Christmas cards, and fill them with warm greetings, positive thoughts and uplifting messages. They will be placed on the beds of clients at Homeless Shelters and Youth Shelters in Surrey, Alberta, Toronto, Seattle and LA. Sadly, these cards may be the only thing they receive at Christmas.
Send your cards to:

(Please leave the envelopes unsealed, just so they can be sure 100% of the messages are kind, and in the spirit of Christmas.)
