Thinking of You Week 2019

We all know someone who’s having a tough time. Think of the friend, family member, neighbour or work colleague who is having a rough patch. Perhaps they’ve recently lost a loved one. Maybe their children have left home recently and they’re feeling a bit alone. Or perhaps they are just going through a rough patch where life just isn’t as good as it could be. Maybe you actually don’t know how things are because it’s been too long since you last heard from them. Thinking of You week 2019 is a chance to change that. It’s an opportunity to make someone smile in a very simple way; by sending a card.

Thinking of You Week 2019

This year, Thinking of You Week runs from the 22nd to the 28th September. It’s an intiative that the Greeting Card Association (GCA) started 5 years ago and has grown in popularity and impact with each year. You can be a part of it and it’s really simple!

All you are asked to do is send a card.

In fact, as the GCA puts it, “Send a Card, Deliver a Smile.”

We all know, and science has proved, that receiving a hand written card is really good for mental health. The small effort of taking the time to write a note in a card and pop it in the letterbox means so much to us. To know that someone was thinking about us and wanted us to know we were important enough to them for them to take time out to write a card means so much.

Thinking of You Week Challenge

If you only send one card, that’s great! Do it!

However, if you want to take up my Thinking of You Week Challenge, you could try and send 7 cards to 7 different people. To help, I’ve put together a special offer until the end of September. Choose any 7 every day greeting cards from my Flamingo Paperie catalogue for just £10 (plus postage). If you can’t choose, or want to same time, I’ve picked my top 7 for the occasion.

Email me your selection at janet@cardsandgiftwrap.co.uk or get my Thinking of You Week 7 card pack here.

Thinking of You Week 2015

Help to create a wave of love, caring and happiness during this special week by harnessing the power of sending and receiving greeting cards.

It’s been scientifically proven that receiving a handwritten card makes people feel much more special than receiving instant texts, emails or Facebook messages. And it feels really good to send them too!

This is all great for everyone’s health and wellbeing.

Cognitive neuroscientist, Dr Lynda Shaw, firmly believes that receiving cards helps to stave off feelings of loneliness and isolation, increases self-esteem and even wards off the early stages of depression.

So let’s all get happy by connecting in this most meaningful way!

What do I do?

Send 7 cards during this week and encourage your friends, colleagues and their families to do the same. Feel free to give them in person or pop one through a neighbour’s letterbox too!

Write a message just to say hello, to tell someone you love them, to make them laugh, be supportive in a time of trouble, wish them better, kiss and make up, or just to say…thinking of you!
