We would love your help. You can make blank cards and send them in for other volunteers and survivors to write messages. Or you can make and/or buy blank cards and write your own messages that inspire hope.

Please send all cards to:
ATTN: In-Kind Donations
11675 Great Oaks Way, Suite 175
Alpharetta, GA 30022

Live in the area? You can drop them off at the same address Monday – Friday from 9:00am to 4:00pm.

Making Blank Cards

Cards should appeal to a variety of women. Because our participants come from diverse backgrounds, please keep any messaging nonreligious. The cards can be simply decorated and/or have encouraging, uplifting messages. See image below for ideas and inspiration.

Writing Messages

Inside you can write a short note of encouragement to a Saprea Retreat participant. These messages should inspire hope and remind each survivor of her strength and courage. Because our participants come from diverse backgrounds, please keep your messages nonreligious.

Address your notes to “Dear Friend,” “Dear Warrior Sister,” “Dear Courageous One,” or something similarly empowering, and sign off “Your Friend,” “Your Warrior Sister,” or something similarly kind and supportive. If you use your name, please do not include your surname.

See sample notes for ideas and inspiration, but please make your notes your own.

Dear Friend,

You are amazing for all you have accomplished at the Saprea Retreat. I am proud of you for the journey you have made that has led you to this moment. You are strong, capable, and loved, and you can do this. Keep learning and growing. Use the tools you’ve learned here at retreat to continue your healing. There will be hard days, but you are full of courage and have a community supporting you.Your Friend

Dear Warrior Sister,

I want you to know that you are brave and strong. If you ever doubt yourself, just think of all the courageous things you have accomplished this week. I love this quote by actress Ruth Gordon: “Courage is like a muscle. We strengthen it by use.” I know you will continue to strengthen your courage as you use the tools you learned this week. You can do it! I have such faith in you, in your journey, and in the amazing growth awaiting you!Your Warrior Sister
