Cardz for Kidz 

Back by popular demand, we will be providing students, faculty advisors and professional partners the opportunity to participate in  Cards for Kidz, an organization that provides hospitalized and traumatized children homemade, inspiring cards.  In 2017, Beta Alpha Psi achieved Gold Status with Cards for Kidz, thanks to everyone's creativity at the regional meetings and annual meeting.  We are only a handful of cards short of Platinum Status- help us attain this 2018 goal! 

A table will be set up in the registration area for attendees to stop by at their leisure to create an uplifting card.  All cards will be sent to a Cards for Kidz participating hospital. To learn more about Cards for Kidz, please click here.

Beta Alpha Psi will provide paper, scissors, glue and markers.  We are asking that attendees bring supplies to enhance their cards.  To see a list of recommended supplies from Cards for Kidz, please click here.
