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 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
This year, Thinking of You Week runs from the 21st to the 27th September. It’s an intiative that the Greeting Card Association (GCA) started 6 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 firstname.lastname@example.org or get my Thinking of You Week 7 card pack here.
