    Christmas cards for a Seriously ill child

    Folks
    One of my wife's friends is a volunteer with a local charity, and at this year's party one 'at the time my wife thought terminally' ill young boy (age approximately 9 or 10)was asked by Santa if he wanted anything besides the R/C truck. He said, 'yes, I would like christmas cards from all over the US (& elsewhere if you're so inclined -Ned).

    I'd rather not publish the address just in case some weirdo trolls through google etc... so if you'd like to help, drop me a PM and I'll send you the address.

    Ned

    *note, he is NOT terminally ill. He Is in treatment and is in remission

    Thanks for the address Ned! If something as simple as a Christmas card can brighten up a child's Christmas - count me in!

    Thanks for the address Ned. I'll send one from here and I'm going to Indonesia the week after next. I'll try and send him something from there.

    Cards coming from all my family. My wife is taking the address to her school and is going to ask all hew kids and other teachers to send a card. My son is taking the address to his base and asking all his buddies to send one as well.
    If all this little kid wants is cards to make him happy then I'm sure that we can swamp him with cards and happy thoughts.

    Got Jacob's Christmas card in the mail today and managed to include a couple of postcards of our area. Hope he receives a ton of cards!
