7-year-old collecting Valentine's Day cards for seniors

On a drive home one night recently, Bev Caron asked her 7-year-old son what type of valentines he wanted to give his classmates this year.

His answer wasn&apos;t what she expected.

&quot;It kind of came out of nowhere, and I just love his excitement for it,&quot; she said.

Logan told his mom that his focus isn&apos;t on his peers this year.

He wants to bring joy to senior citizens living in nursing homes.

&quot;They don&apos;t get cards, Valentine&apos;s Day cards,&quot; he explained.

Bev said, &quot;He started talking about a project of having people bring cards that he could hand out to people who don&apos;t get them otherwise, so it just kind of went from there.&quot; Logan enlisted the help of fellow students at Xavier Elementary School in Appleton.

They used colored paper, glue, markers and other supplies to create messages of love.

&quot;I wrote, &apos;This Valentine&apos;s Day you will come into my heart and never come out,&apos;&quot; second grader Gabby Condon recalled.

The children want to remind the seniors that they aren&apos;t forgotten.

&quot;I like making cards for people because I bring joy into their heart,&quot; explained Nicky Schnaubert.

&quot;They&apos;ve put a lot of time and thought into these cards, a lot of homemade cards with fingerprints and handprints,&quot; said Bev.

After posting about the project on Facebook, as well as setting out a collection box at church, Logan crushed his initial goal of 100 cards.

&quot;We have at this point 350 cards,&quot; and Bev said they just keep coming in.

&quot;He has cards coming from Virginia, Pennsylvania, Iowa and here in Wisconsin.&quot; Everyone was surprised by the huge response, but not by Logan&apos;s actions.

&quot;He&apos;s got a very kind heart, very loving boy.

To do something like this I think is just a feather in his cap,&quot; said Logan&apos;s teacher, Ellen Baisden.

Bev added, &quot;It reaffirms the things that you&apos;ve done at home.

You hope that your child is going to behave and make a difference, and then when they come up with something like this completely on their own, it reaffirms that.&quot; Logan plans to hand deliver all the valentines.

&quot;Because it will make people happy,&quot; he explained.

Baisden knows that first-hand after visiting her mother who lived in a nursing home.

&quot;I&apos;ve seen people who are by themselves day after day after day.

Just one kind word, one smile, and one card now will really, really make their day.&quot; Bev works in hospice and has also seen the impact.

&quot;Most of the elderly patients I know have been overjoyed to see kids come and visit.

So to have the visit and a card, I think will be really cool for everybody.&quot; It will be especially neat for Logan who spearheaded it all.

&quot;I&apos;m very proud of him,&quot; Bev beamed.

Logan has a goal of collecting 500 cards.

If you&apos;d like to create your own cards for his project, you have until February 11th to drop them off at St.

Thomas More Catholic Church in Appleton.
