This year I am excited to announce that Phoenix are providing special packs of 7 cards for you to send during Thinking of You week (26th Sept to 2nd Oct).
Normally a pack of 7 cards would cost you £12.25 but these are being made available at a special price of £8.40.
Last year I made my own packs and donated £2 from each pack to my local charity Hebrides Alpha Project. It was obviously such a good idea that Phoenix have decided to roll this out nationally!
Thinking of You week is all about lifting people’s spirits, letting someone know you care. #sendingcards can have such a positive impact on mental health that these packs will support Mind and Hebrides Alpha supported housing project (1 and 2 pounds from each pack respectively)
Last year you helped me to raise £100, can we do it again?
If you can’t order online then you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org for a pack (£1.30 postage) thank you x
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!
Why buy this pack?
By buying this pack you are also supporting others who need to know someone is thinking of them.
£2 from every pack bought will go directly to Hebrides Alpha Project.
At Hebrides Alpha Project, we provide a service for persons aged 18+, seeking to recover from alcohol, drug, mental health or criminal justice related problems and to assist them to become confident, responsible and valued members of the local community. We offer an abstinence based Supported Accommodation service.
