We have added a new collection of wonderful postcards, created by Bob Bianchini, Pascal Lemaitre, Lisa Mundroff and Alexander Stadler.
As we write this on July 11, thousands of children are still being held in detention by the US government, separated from their parents. Please join us to send them postcards and let them know they are not forgotten.
We’ve found that postcard gatherings can be a wonderful way to work together. Print out as many postcards as you want, invite friends over, and each of you can write your own message to a child on the back of the postcard. Because the postcards will be sent in bulk, you can use the entire back of the card for your message.
Once you have written your postcards, collect them and send them all in an envelope or box to:
ATTN: Cards for Kids
330 C Street, SW
Washington, D.C. 20201
We’ve spoken to staff in Senator Durbin’s office who have said that there are dedicated people in the UAC/ORR offices, and they have confidence that the cards will reach the children who have been incarcerated without their parents. If you would like to include a note to the UAC/ORR staff, please do that too.
Here is the PDF of the four new images, to download and print here:

You can print at home on #67 stock, which is approved by the Post Office for postcards. If your printer can handle 110 cardstock, that works too! The postcards print on regular 8 1/2 x 11, and then cut each sheet into 4 postcards.
You can also print the cards at Staples, using these directions:
