Cards for Charlie

Hi Craft Friends,

I was wondering if any of you would be interested in sending cards to 4 year old Charlie. 

He is battling a rare skin condition called epidermolysis bullosa commonly known as EB, which causes his skin to blister.

Here is a link to his CaringBridge page.  I hope that you will take some time out of your day to read his story.  It's very touching and he is a fighter and will touch your heart. 

To send cards please send it to:

Ronald McDonald House
Attn:  Knuth Family
621 Oak Street SE
Minneapolis, MN  55414

If you can't send a card to Charlie, then would you just take a little time out of your day to pray for him & his family.  They need all the support they can get right now. 
If you need anymore information please contact me!  Thank you all so much!
