UPDATE: Thanks to the hard work and big hearts of the PicsArt community, we were able to send Jacob this awesome remix video. Scroll down to check it out!
PicsArt fam, let’s get in formation.
Nine-year-old Jacob Thompson is celebrating Christmas early this year. He’s terminally ill, and his Christmas wish is to receive self-made Christmas cards. He’s already received over 14,000 cards from people all over the world — including Antarctica — and now it’s our turn to give him a gift that will make him smile.
Jacob was diagnosed at age 5 with neuroblastoma, a malignant cancer of the nerve cells that is almost exclusively found in children and extremely difficult to treat. He’s been fighting the disease for years, so let’s send him some love this week and make Jacob’s Christmas wish a reality.
Head over to the Challenges section of the app to enter the Holiday Cards for Jacob Challenge (hint: he’s a big fan of Star Wars, Minecraft, Legos and penguins). We’ll be taking your submissions and turning them into a remix video just for him.
Let’s make Jacob’s Christmas wish come true.
P.S. — If you’d like to send Jacob a card by snail mail, here’s the address:
c/o Barbara Bush Children’s Hospital at Maine Medical Center
22 Bramhall St.
Portland, ME 04102
