You’ve Got Holiday Mail: Charity Initiative


Have extra holiday cards & want to give back?

We've partnered with our favorite Instagram account, @iamthirtyaf, to find a few amazing places to spread some happiness this holiday. We asked our followers on Instagram for recommendations for organizations to send extra holiday cards to full of positive messages. Think: nursing homes, children's hospitals, and more. All you have to do is write a little greeting in a holiday card and send out in the mail to make someone's day!

WHAT SHOULD I SAY IN MY CARD?
While due to privacy issues we don't have names of recipients, you can address your holiday card generally. i.e. "Hey there..." Then, talk a little bit about who you are, where you're writing from, and wish them a happy holiday season. You're just trying to give them a few minutes of joy and a smile! If you feel inclined, include your address so they choose to write back - you may make a long distance pen pal! See an example holiday card message below:

"Hey there! My name is Becky, and I'm 25 years old and live in a small town in New Jersey, about 30 minutes from the Big Apple! I work as a marketing specialist at a small advertising company, and love my job! I'm siting here with my cat, Sparky, who acts more like a lap dog and wanted to wish you a warm and happy holiday season. It's getting colder these days and am looking forward to cozying up and sipping tea while watching some classic holiday movies. My favorite is A Christmas Carol. Hope you can watch some favorites of yours as well. Happy Holidays, and hope this made you smile. - Becky"
