The holidays are a time full of cheer, a time to express your love, share kindness and a time to dream big. This holiday season we gave the field the opportunity to do all four of these things with our two holiday Sendcere card contests. These two contests began on December 3rd and ended on December 17th and we are so excited to announce the winners.
We had such an overwhelming response to these two card contests, it was very special to see how much time and effort went into these cards and how many of you spent time helping others in need. We loved seeing your creativity as you decorated your Christmas tree cards and showed your true individuality.
Collectively as a team we sat together and read through each of the Angel cards so we could all hear the amazing acts of kindness you performed. We are in awe over your selfless acts and are proud of each one of you. Your random acts of kindness have the power to change lives and we know through your thoughtfulness you impacted many.
There were so many fantastic submissions we couldn’t pick just one so we have selected the following winners for our Christmas Tree Decorating Card Contest.
Our Grand Prize Winner for the Christmas Tree Card Contest Is…

“Your Christmas tree captured the essence of a classic tree that many know in their hearts. We loved the village placed beneath your christmas tree filled with bells and felt like we could hear them ringing and the chestnuts roasting in the scene you created!” -SendOutCards Marketing Team
We were unbelievable touched by the Angel cards; they truly made our day here at the office. We have selected five people who’s story pulled at our heartstrings and that we want to highlight as unbelievably gracious and selfless acts of kindness. We are thrilled to be able to share with you the inside of their cards so you too can feel the love that was shared through their acts of kindness.
“I enjoyed seeing that people are still helping people. It is inspiring to see that the giving spirit is still out there. I also enjoyed hearing that families are still creating and carrying on new traditions. This is a great story about what the holidays are really about.” -Brandon Comstock
“This act of kindness was extremely touching to me. Sandy had a dear friend whose husband suddenly died. Sandy was there to comfort her friend and pay for the entire trip from Minnesota to Iowa to bury her friend’s husband. What a major act of kindness and a true example of the SendOutCards mission to continue to change the lives around us and impact others by acting on our promptings.” –Madison Jacobo
Nancy Lee McCaskill
“I love that Nancy utilized her own talents as an author and donated her newly published book, as well as books on building self esteem, to a women’s shelter. Everyone truly has his or her own unique talents and gifts to share with the world, and Nancy is demonstrating this first-hand.” -Emily Robison
“What really stood out to me is that this is a 13 year old boy. We, as parents and guardians, strive to engage our youth in acting on making a positive difference in the world. Being a teenager, it’s not the first thing on their minds. This young man acted all on his own to help make a difference in another young man’s life. Small acts of kindness make a huge impact, especially in this period of a teen’s life. Having a pre-teen of my own, I am moved by this and can only hope for more acts of kindness like Zack’s.” – Brooke James
“I am in awe of the phenomenal and the many selfless acts Beverly has been part of this year. Her selflessness and acts of charity touched my heart and made me remember what this time of year is all about. I am grateful to have Beverly as part of the SendOutCards family – she is the epitome of showing gratitude and paying it forward.” – Sami Bateman
Thank you to all of those who participated in these two contests and joined in on the fun of the season! We hope you know how much we love and appreciate all that you do and how grateful we are for you. Our hearts are filled this holiday season and we wish for yours to be as well!
