We all know someone who’s having a tough time. Think of that 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.
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.
