Well, as a full-time mom to a four-year-old, a wife, and business owner, I can think of several reasons:
So, we resort to a phone call, or a text, or DM, or sometimes: nothing.
We know something as simple as a greeting card can turn someone's day around for the better. We know cards bring pause amidst chaos. We know a card can make someone feel seen. They let us know that someone really appreciates us, or something we did. Cards feel GOOD! And they do so much good.
Yet we still. don't. send them. Why?
It goes back to what we lack: the time, the card(s), the words, the motivation.
That writing cards was fun. That it wasn’t something you dreaded but something you actually looked forward to.
That you had someone cool (…ish 🤓), holding you accountable each month to sit and write a whole bunch of cards, all at once.
That you were surrounded by an entire group of people who, like you, wanted to do better and write more cards?
Imagine how good it would feel just to be surrounded by like-minded people on the same mission – to send more good out into the world, one card at a time - and that you all showed up once a month to write cards together?
Now, for the kicker... WHAT IF YOU NEVER HAD TO LEAVE THE HOUSE IN ORDER FOR ALL THIS TO HAPPEN?
IMAGINE the impact something like this would have.
On your relationships. On your friendships. On YOU. Think of the ripple effects that take place throughout your inner circle. Think of the impact they might have on your community. Think of how much better you would feel as a person, to know for certain you're doing your part in this world, and doing something SO GOOD with your time on earth.
Dork, gif lover, bad dancer, wife, mom, and greeting card designer. ...who's also terrible at sending cards. (Not exactly what you'd expect, I know, but it's also precisely why I founded JUST SEND THE DAMN CARD; because I figured if I could do better sending cards, we ALL could do better).
