Cards For Matt

Cards For Matt

I'm trying to organize a card campaign for Matt Brown, a 16 y/o hockey player from Norwood, MA.

Matt was paralyzed in a freak accident on the ice on January 23, 2010.

Here is a link to the original article in the Boston Globe.

Matt is now at the Shepard Center in Atlanta, GA for rehab.

Cards and letters can be sent to Matt at the following address:

Matt Brown

Room 425

Shephard Center

2020 Peachtree Road NW

Atlanta, GA 30309

Here is a link to Matty's website to learn more about this young man.
I hope to generate as much exposure as possible for Matt. I am asking anyone who sees this to please post a link to my blog post. Thanks!!!

My Nestabilities Storage Solution

Hey all, I thought I would share with you my storage solution for my Nesties. This works for me, and I'm happy with it.

Went to Staples Yesterday and got this Memorex CD File container. It's really nice; it's fabric covered, with a hinged top. This works like a mini file drawer, and the CD sleeves are like mini hanging file-folders! They're actually cute!

I cut a square of magnetic sheeting for each set to stay put within the pocket. It seems to be working great!

ETA: Some have asked where to get magnetic sheets. I've gotten them at both Staples and Michaels. If u can't find them just ask a store clerk, and they'll show you!
