Hi! I’m Christina

Founder of Cards for Little Hearts.  On behalf of the heart patients and their families, thank you for considering giving a gift of handmade cards and sharing a piece of your heart with them.  Although it cannot cure congenital heart disease, a simple, handmade card can have a significant, positive and lasting impact on heart patients and their families.  Our cards represent the love that these children are receiving and assure them they are not alone.  When they feel that love, it gives them hope, lifting their spirits and inspiring strength to continue fighting to get better.  We are tremendously grateful for the generosity and support from card makers around the world for taking part in Cards for Little Hearts and hope that you too can join us.  Thank you for stopping by!
