Perhaps a majority of you have already heard of Max Low but I hadn’t until recently and I just had to take the time to write about him. I was at my local Hallmark store when I read about him at the register. Not too much was written on this pamphlet but it was enough to grab my attention.
I decided to look him up before writing here. This article written by Kyle Munson at The Des Moines Register is from March 16th but it is one of the best that I’ve found.
Twelve year old Max, Mighty Max, would love to receive one million cards. He has been battling leukemia and receiving these cards is his wish.
Don’t you think we need to do something about that? I do! If you do not have a get well or thinking of you card handy, grab a sticky note and remind yourself to pick one up the next time you are at the store or…make one! If you have children perhaps they would like to make one for him too! From what I could find online it looks like as of June 3rd he had received 220,255 cards!
Cards for Max can be sent to: Mighty Max Low c/0 Greg and Bambi Low, PO Box 111, Neola, IA 51559

I have so many things to do today but I know that one of them is going to be getting a card into my mailbox for Mighty Max Low. Will you be doing the same?
