In 5/Under 5: Send a FREE Valentine to a Child in the Hospital

We at ITLT love a good In 5/Under 5 challenge!! While this is an "In 5 minutes/Under 5 dollars" challenge, we know you'll really love this one because, in fact, it's actually FREE and takes only ONE minute! If you've been on #TeamITLT for a little while, this project may look familiar to you...

Back in October, we challenged all of you to Send a Bat-o-gram to children spending Halloween at Children's Hospital LA. We were honored to receive a personal email from the friendly folks at CHLA, lettings us know that ITLT played an important part in sharing an amazing amount of smiles that day: "Your blog is great. You are so right; it's the little things that add up to a big difference." Over 16,000 grams were delivered to the kids, and so proud that we could be a part of such a happy day. Thank you to all of our team for participating!

If you haven't guessed by now, I am VERY excited to see how many valentines we can send for Valentine's Day!! 

Remember making valentines when you were a kid? Exchanging little cards with your classmates and then excitedly looking through the stack of cards you received? Hearts, glitter, and goodies everywhere! CHLA wants to make sure their patients have that same sweet experience this Valentine's Day—even if they can't celebrate with their classmates. They have some fun activities planned at the hospital, and they need US to help us make Valentine's Day extra special!

Let's rally, TeamITLT!
After you send yours, share with friends!

As always, if YOU know of any other hospitals or organizations that make sending holiday greeting cards so easy, please share them with us. If you're particularly inspired, share it with us in the form of a blog post and be a guest blogger on ITLT!

Upload a photo of your Valentine and share it with us!

Happy Valentine's Day from us to you! 
AND from all of us to the kiddos at CHLA this holiday!
