Cards For Shane

I got this email yesterday... How cool to send this little boy some birthday cards.. come on girls!! Let's make Shane's birthday special!!! Stamp up a little love and send it his way!!! WE can make a difference in this little boy's life!! See more about Shane's story here (thanks Sue!).


Recently, one of our retailers contacted us about 7-year-old Shane. Shane has been diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia and is currently at the Children’s Hospital in Ontario, where he’ll undergo chemotherapy until June. When the Make-a-Wish Foundation asked Shane what his special wish would be, he wished to be in the Guinness Book of World Records for getting the most birthday cards. He'll turn 8 years old on May 30th, and he needs to get over one million cards!

Want to help? Send a birthday card (or two) to Shane by May 30th at the address below. Please help if you can–I imagine this is a pretty big deal for a kid who’s gone through much more than anyone should ever have to.

Send birthday cards to:

CTV Television
Cards for Shane Bernier
1500 Merivale Rd
Ottawa, Ontario
K2E 6Z5
Canada

Or directly to Shane:

Shane Bernier
P.O. Box 484

I heard he is trying to break a record of most birthday cards received...but someone said that home made cards do not count. Not quite sure about that one. But the sentiment always helps!

Aw thanks for featuring Shane's story, the kids and I have sent him a few (my daughter loves that he speaks French like she does).

I get the feeling that he cares less about breaking a record than about feeling loved and thought of...
