Patients with Huntsman Cancer Institute receive a Decoupage Composition Journal.
Also called "Altered Journals," these are the instructions from their website: Decorate and embellish composition books using scrapbook paper. Add inspirational quotes, words, or saying to the covers of the journal. Patients are able to use these for writing down notes or thoughts; they are a great creative writing tool. You can add a fun pencil or funky pen to go with the journal.
Altered Journals are just one need we focus on with Huntsman. Click on their logo above to find more needs. Anything you choose to bring with you to Let's Create Expo that fulfills their guidelines, will be delivered to Huntsman Cancer Institute.
You may bring your already created blank journals to the show OR create them at the show in our CARES booth!

For the Youth in the Utah Juvenile Justice System our cards give them a sense of normalcy.
We deliver hundreds of blank handmade cards or card kits each year and they are always SO appreciative! The youth use these for lessons, writing thank you or apology cards to parents and loved ones, birthday cards to friends and family and even children. The youth who desire to create something LOVE the card kits.
Bring your finished handmade blank cards or card kits to the CARES booth during the show.
Card kits need to be prepackaged and come with an instruction sheet. The supplies can be stored in the card envelope or a ziplock-type bag. The CARES booth does not supply card making materials such as envelopes or ziplock bags. Handmade cards should also come with an envelope.
Cards and Journals can be Redeemed for Prize Tickets! Just as with Receipt Redemption, when you bring your cards and journals to the CARES booth, we reward you with prize drawing tickets. For every 25 cards or journals you get one prize drawing ticket. Bring them in during the Early Bird hour from 9 am - 10 am for DOUBLE the reward plus 5 extra prize drawing tickets!
