About Duke Children's Cards

Duke Children's Greetings Cards

Since its inception, the Duke Children's Card Program has raised more than $1,500,000 for the kids at Duke Children's! Proceeds support programs like Camp Kaleidoscope, a summer camp for children treated at Duke Children's; research endeavors to help find new cures for illnesses; and many other important programs that improve the quality of life of the young patients undergoing treatment. Each card, designed by a school child or patient, represents the love and spirit of youth and sends a message that hope and joy reside in all people. This program is truly about children helping children.

 

In the words of Honorary Chairman Coach Mike Krzyzewski:

What started out as a small holiday card endeavor more than 30 years ago has grown into a much larger and well-known card program for year-round greetings. Each year, I look forward to seeing the beautiful cards and meeting the children who designed them. And each year, friends like you purchase cards for personal and business use, and by doing so, you are directly impacting the care and services provided to children and families at Duke Children’s Hospital & Health Center in an immensely positive way.
