Brenner Holiday Card 2015-PRINT_Page_1Holiday Idea from Brenner Children’s Hospital

Brenner Children’s Hospital has great ways to support area children and spread holiday cheer. Its 2015 holiday-card features the foot prints of Ruth Lupita Cristobal. Ruth was born at 24 weeks 5 days gestation and weighed just 1lb 4.5 oz. What a great way to let family and friends know you are thinking about them this season. This set includes 10 cards/envelopes to a pack for $10. The inside message: Wishing you all the Joys of the Holiday Season. The cards can be purchased online or at the following retailers: Golden Apple, Mainstream Boutique, Southern Home & Kitchen, Bevello, Rosie’s Hallmark, Monkees, and Accessorize This. Learn more about ways to support Brenner children’s Hospital.
