About Cards for Hospitalized Kids

Cards for Hospitalized Kids (CFHK) is an internationally recognized charitable organization that spreads hope, joy & magic to hospitalized kids across America through uplifting, handmade cards. 

Make a Difference in 3 Easy Steps



  • Local Coordinators will provide an opportunity for Au Pairs to participate during a monthly meeting between April-June. Au Pairs come prepared to their meeting with paper and craft supplies. Local Coordinators take a group photo with the cards made to help promote CFHK and submit them to the agency by clicking the button below.
  • Au Pairs get crafty and get their host kids involved in making cards at home throughout the months of April-June. Host parents provide the craft paper, crayons, markers, stickers, scissors, glue and other craft materials. Au pairs may prep and set up craft supplies to make themed cards and allow host kids to come up with their own ideas! Host parents are welcome to join in the fun too for a fun, family activity!

  • Hosts need to fill out our Photo Release Form for any children that are in the photos, so we can Spread the Word about CFHK on social media. Hosts and Au Pairs take photos of crafting sessions and finished cards and submit them by click the button below.
  • Local Coordinators and their families are also encouraged to participate and share their photos with us!


  • LC and Hosts help Au Pairs assess shipping needs and plan the shipping method. Priority Mail Flat Rate Box with USPS is one easy option. 

  • Au Pairs and Hosts put the cards in the mail and know that with each card comes a smile from a child who really needs it. Ship to Cards for Hospitalized Kids, 7290 W. Devon Ave., Chicago, IL 60631.
