Valentine's Day is a time for spreading love and kindness, and what better way to do that than by sending heartfelt messages to children who could use a little extra love?

St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, whose New England office is in Newton, Massachusetts, offers a wonderful opportunity for you to brighten the day of a child undergoing treatment for cancer or other life-threatening diseases.

St. Jude, known for its groundbreaking research and compassionate care, provides treatment to children regardless of their ability to pay. One way you can show your support is by sending free Valentine's Day e-cards to the young patients at the hospital. These cards, created by St. Jude survivors, carry not only beautiful designs but also a message of strength and hope.

Creating a virtual card for a St. Jude patient is a simple yet meaningful process. You can start by choosing from a selection of patient art-inspired cards, each one reflecting the creativity and spirit of these brave children. Once you've selected a card, you have the option to either pick a pre-written message or craft your note.

Whether you're sending words of encouragement, sharing a favorite quote, or simply letting the child know that they are in your thoughts, your message will undoubtedly bring a smile to their face. These small gestures of kindness can have a meaningful impact on young patients.

So, this Valentine's Day, take a moment to spread love beyond your immediate circle and send a free e-card to a St. Jude child.
