In this era of social media, texting and instant messaging, here are 10 reasons to pick up a pen, stick a stamp and send a card. The Mad Hatter may have had the right idea.
10 reasons to be a Mad Hatter
Haven’t forgotten you
It’s been a while since we last spoke, I’ve been busy and didn’t want you to think I had forgotten you. A handwritten card will forgive a lot more non-contact than a FB msg, take the extra minute to write a card.
Saw this and thought of you
Just catching up
It’s time for a coffee and cake somewhere. Your friend will feel you really want to meet up if you write a note, with even a time and place suggested….trust me, much more meaningful than a text and they’re less likely to forget a card and more likely to reply.
Wanted to make you laugh
Laughter is truly the best medicine and whether someone is ill, having a tough time or not that you know of, a humourous card will brighten up their day….just like it did yours when you picked the card.
…we had that pyjama party years ago? Doesn’t the one on the left look like….
It’s National Clean up your room day*…
…and I wanted to give you advance warning. Or chocolate truffles, ice creams, save the whale etc. Your friend will love the thought and might even frame the card! (*It’s May 10th by the way if you need to know…)
I’m a bit of a Mad Hatter
Happy Unbirthday! At least 364 days a year you can send these cards and let’s face it most of us would love more than one birthday a year. Or if you really are a Mad Hatter and love tea, then I have the perfect card!
It’s been a year since…
Whether it’s been a year since you walked along that beach or since they lost a loved one, such a thought will either bring back happy memories or remind them they aren’t forgotten in their grief.
No flowers allowed
With many hospital wards not allowing flowers any more a colourful card goes a long way to brightening up the hospital bedside cabinet!
If none of the above apply, well then just because it’s a thoughtful thing to do. Pick the right greeting card and it will look good and do good!
Go on, make someone smile today, send a card.
