**Save the date: We’ll be back December 2017.

This December, we want to spread cheer to those who are near – but unable to spend the holidays at home with their families. We’re challenging kiddos (of any age) with the help of their parents to make holiday cards for Columbus’ kids and adults in nursing homes and hospitals.

How the cards look is up to the imagination of Columbus’ tots and tweens (and all the kids in between). Markers, paint, stickers, crayons – they’re all fair game.  We just want to flood Columbus with the cutest cards for those who need them.

The more the merrier! So, spread the word to any Moms, Dads, Grandmas, Grandpas, daycares, schools, etc and let’s make tonight a DIY night.

What’s next?

Whether it’s just one card or a stack, please drop off or mail your holiday card(s) to the (614) Magazine office (458 E Main Street, Columbus, OH 43215). Just make sure they’re received by 5pm on December 20th!

Questions or Suggestions?

Have a question or suggestion for a local nursing home or hospital that may want holiday cards made by Columbus’ tiny humans? Please email us at


A big THANK YOU to all those talking about (614)’s Holiday Cheer project!
