This weekend’s arrival of Halloween means Thanksgiving and Christmas aren’t far behind, prompting some folks to think ahead to their holiday cards. Tony Timm, associate director of the Heart Connection Children’s Cancer Programs urges Iowans to consider sending colorful cards purchased through the non-profit group, drawn by children. Timm says the artists all attend the Heart Connection’s camps, which are for children with cancer and their siblings. About 300 children in Iowa per year attend the camps and one of the ways they give back is to design the cars. He says 100-percent of the proceeds from the card sales go back into the organization’s programs. Timm says this year’s crop of cards is colorful. The cards show things like snowmen, penguins, trees and snowflakes. To view or order the cards, call (515) 243-6239 or surf to “www.holidaycardsbykids.com”.
