Things we can do...
Every time you buy from our shop we donate a pack for a pack of cards to a care home in the UK.
Once twenty free packs have been generated they are packaged up with some pens and dropped off. If you know of a care home where the residents would appreciate a delivery of free cards please let us know, as we can post boxes out.
We've just trialled our first donation at Amblecote Gardens, Salford to see if residents welcome the offer of card deliveries. Happily they've told us that it inspires them to remember and connect with people during the days when they see few visitors, helps for those who can't get out to the shops but don't feel comfy shopping online, and glad that they don't have to use their pensions to purchase cards for their friends and family. I think they also liked our designs!
We choose a careful mix of birthday, blank, wedding, funny, leaving, thank you, and love designs. We will put in a few LGBTQ designs too so residents can feel included, and so that they have suitable cards to post out to their friends and family in our growing and more accepting society.
Donations at Cromwell House, Norwich 3/10/19
Thank you Espe! I hope the residents enjoy using the cards for the writing to the community scheme. What a wonderful idea.
Donations at Ivy Court, Norwich 25/9/19
It was wonderful to meet you today Sharon and Ellie! I hope the cards bring the residents some joy and thank you for being our first care home in Norwich to receive our cards.
Donations at THE FED, Prestwich, Manchester. 16/8/19
The Fed is the leading social care charity for the Greater Manchester Jewish Community.
We dropped off our second box and hear the residents are enjoying the cards! The organisers there have twinned their home with a neighbouring care home so that the residents have pen pals! We're waiting on some more photos and a press release.
