We all know that cards harness more power than a text or DM. Yet we just. don't. send them. Not nearly as often as we'd like to anyway.
Well, even as a greeting card designer, I can think of a bunch of reasons! For starters:
Cards take time to write. Time we often don't have.
We forget that it's someone's birthday or (insert other milestone) and don't remember until it's too late to send a card in time.
We might not know what to say.
We don't always have a card on hand.
There's the whole task of having to address, stamp, and mail them.
Maybe, we're simply just not in the mood.
As a business owner and full-time mom to a four-year-old, I understand.
Which is why I founded Just Send The Damn Card.
Once a month and sometimes more, our community will meet over Zoom for card-writing workshops. As your host, I help you get to writing immediately, with what I like to call Rapid-Fire-Love-Fests (my challenge to you to write just 1 or 2 lines to someone, getting you out of your perfectionistic-head and warmed up, ready to write). Following that, we share the main prompt of the day and get to writing alongside some calming, instrumental music. We dedicate time at the end of each workshop to share what we wrote, if desired, and honestly, the sharing is my favorite part because it brings us closer together as a community. It helps us get un-stuck if that’s how we’re feeling.
The result of these workshops is a seriously positive effect on those who receive the cards, and the ripple effects go far beyond what we can even imagine. It's a rare thing – because there is nothing to lose by joining this community and every single person affected by it, wins.
I truly can't think of a better way to spend an hour+ each month.

What our members have to say:
I'm your host, Sarah Weeger.
I'm a wife, a mom, a total dork, a business owner, and someone who used to be terrible at actually sending cards (which didn’t look so great, being that my business was designing *greeting cards*! So I sought to change that). I'm also someone with a ridiculously-high desire to help us all do better in our relationships, and to have fun while we're at it. JSTDC for me has checked all those boxes.
