Welcome to Project Give Thanks where America’s card artists supply Cancer Survivors with beautiful handcrafted cards.

Why Cancer Fighters Give Thanks: Your first thought may be that people diagnosed with cancer have nothing to be thankful about.  My name is Sonja and I was diagnosed with stage-3 breast cancer in May of 2010.  There’s hardly a moment that goes by where I’m not giving thanks for someone, something or everything!  During my nearly year long cancer journey I’ve written close to a hundred thank you cards and I’m not finished yet.  More than 10 medical professionals and their teams worked to save my life.  I give thanks!  Several friends worked tirelessly on the front lines to keep me fed, medicated and healthy. I give thanks! Dozens of family members, friends, church members, and fellow Cancer Survivors lovingly supported me in various ways.  I give thanks!

Free cards for Cancer Survivors: Project Give Thanks places a large basket of beautiful handcrafted cards in the chemotherapy room (infusion room) where Cancer Survivors can help themselves.  What a gift this is!  It is also the perfect time to give it.  Chemo takes 2 to 4 hours to administer so there is time to write a note or two.  There is time to be thankful.

Empowering Cancer Fighters: Sending (and receiving) cards is very important to Cancer Survivors.  The act of giving thanks, remembering birthdays and comforting others is empowering.  When one feels well enough to share their journey or possibly help another, feelings of helplessness move aside and spirits are lifted.

Everyone Gives Thanks! Cancer Survivors will enjoy looking through the lovingly handcrafted cards while thinking of their special supporters.  They will appreciate the convenience and cost savings.  They will also think of the artists who created the beautiful cards for them.  In turn, the card artists will be thankful that they are helping Cancer Survivors. They will enjoy knowing that their work and crafts are really making a difference in someone’s life.  Recently I read the back of one artist’s card which said:

Stamps $7,000; Supplies $4,500; Handmade card from me: PRICELESS!

Time spent living our passion while helping others –  Doubly Priceless!

Thank you for your time and attention. How wonderful that you’ve read all of this!!!  Please go to the top of the blog and click on Project Give Thanks for the details on how you can contribute.  If you are not a card artist you can contribute time, project expertise, money or best wishes.  Please leave a comment.  I look forward to hearing from you.

With Heartfelt Gratitude,

Sonja Knaisch
