    Hoot, that message brought tears to my eyes. I'm going to talk to my co-teacher about doing this too.

    This is a local news story here.

    Today the family received 3000 cards. They have volunteers who are helping to handle this massive volume of mail.

    During the last few days of their son's life, the family is asking that people NOT SEND ANY MORE CARDS to their home.

    They are asking that people donate to hospice care, that they are using at this time. (I believe it is with Nationwide Children's Hospital, here in Columbus.)

    Are you willing to send overseas? Any orphanage would love to get cards for their kids

    Check out www.makeachildsmile.org. They feature new kids each month who have various illnesses and could use cheering up. Another great class project!
