It may be easier to send a group text or write a mass email to your family, friends or clients at the holidays. If you’re anything like me, it’s hard to go about the day without hearing the phrase, “Oh, yeah, I saw that on Facebook.”
With so many ways to keep in touch, personal interactions are intentional and memorable.
While it may seem easy to let holiday cards go by the wayside, now more than ever, sending a holiday greeting via old fashioned snail mail is just the thing to spread hope and joy this season.
Here are four reasons by to send a holiday greeting card this year (like the adorable card from Second Harvest):
1. It’s refreshing to get real mail.
Gone are the days when you find personal mail in the mailbox. It’s always junk mail or a bill. Receiving a card or letter in the mail with your name on it sparks heartfelt appreciation.
2. Cards are fun to display.
The ultimate DIY decorations. Everyone who receives a holiday card is bound to display it. On the mantle, the fridge or as part of a creative Pinterest-worthy project.
3. It’s the thought that counts.
People love to stay connected, especially at the holidays. It’s a time to express gratitude and share highlights. When you let someone know that you are thinking of them throughout the season, it speaks volumes of how much you value the relationship.
4. Cards can have more than one purpose.
A card can send a heartfelt greeting and create hope. When you purchase a card from Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida, each card shares a holiday wish with the recipient and 20 meals for a family in need. Thanks to you, the holidays will be a little more joyFULL, hopeFULL and plateFULL.
