Calling all Mini Makers: 2018

Columbus! We need your help spreading cheer to those unable to spend the holidays at home. We’re challenging kiddos (of any age) to make holiday cards for Columbus’s kids and adults in hospitals and nursing homes for (614)’s third annual Holiday Card Drive! 

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! Over 900 cards were donated in 2016 (wow!) and THOUSANDS were collected in 2017. We’d love to top even that if we can! So, spread the word to any Moms, Dads, Grandmas, Grandpas, daycares, schools… and let’s make tonight a DIY night.


What’s next?

Whether it’s just one card or a bag full, 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 19th!

*The (614) office is open Monday – Friday, 9a-5p.*


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 who have spread the word about (614)’s Holiday Cheer project!
