WSPA-FM, Magic 98.9 and Anderson Pediatric Dentistry are teaming for the second annual Cards for Kids in partnership with the Greenville Health System’s Children’s Hospital. Last year's campaign brought in 5,100 cards for kids at the hospital, and the station is anticipating an even larger number this year.

"Last year was amazing, seeing the thousands of cards Magic 98.9 listeners sent for the kids at the GHS Children's Hospital. I'm looking forward to making Valentine's Day special for even more kids this year," said Steve Sinicropi, Entercom Greenville's vice president and market manager.

Magic 98.9 is asking the Upstate to come together and remember the kids who aren’t able to be in church, school, or with their friends and family to receive valentines because of sickness and other health-related problems. How can you help? The station is asking that anyone and everyone create homemade valentines for these kids. The cards should be sent to the radio station where its team will arrange and sort them into care packages that include games and station goodies. The day before Valentine's Day, the station staff and volunteers will deliver the care packages to all the kids at the children’s hospital.

Here are the guidelines for creating the valentines:

  • Say “Happy Valentine's Day!”
  • Create original, "homemade" cards which show how much you care
  • Make cards sound positive, loving, and uplifting
  • Because children will come from many different social backgrounds and medical histories, please omit references to "get well" or "hope you feel better"
  • No glitter or loose attachments
  • No candy or toys
  • Please don't include your personal contact information or address the card to a specific name
  • Please don’t seal envelopes
  • Create as MANY as you want, but separate your cards into GENDER SPECIFIC groups (boys/girls)
  • Have fun!

Send cards between Jan. 5 and Feb. 10 to:

Magic 98.9: Cards for Kids
25 Garlington Road
Greenville, SC 29615

All cards must be postmarked by Feb. 10, so the station has time to sort and organize them.
