There can be one if there is interest , would you like to host?
I think it would be good if we can get some swaps going again.

Due to health reasons, at this time I do not have the ability to host a swap.

Card swappers need to know that there participation and reciprocation for sending cards is what keeps this Card project alive. The smallest deed is better than the greatest intention. Together we can we can spread hope to those we love behind bars. As a volunteer organization our success depends on dedicated, committed & caring people.

Thank you Maytayah & PTO, for all the resources that helped me get my bearings and learn how to navigate prison system.

Your very welcome , and quite right card swappers can be proud of the contributions they have made to making inmates feel less forgotten and lonely.
Any contribution however small is greatly appreciated.
Unfortunately at one point I was hosting all of the swaps and as the original hosts had understandably dropped out due to unforseen circumstances.
It can be very time consuming and I am happy to support anyone who wants to host a swap.

Thank you it would be lovely to have you, hosting a swap isnt hard I can talk you through that if you would like to take part. Fathers day is approaching and that may be a good one to have.

Just tell me what I need to do and consider it done. I feel like these cards are really important to a lot of people, especially those that don't receive a lot of mail. So where do I start?
