Growing up I had pen pals from all around the world. I loved writing letters and notes about myself and then sending them off in anticipation of the messages that would return. Checking my mailbox was also part of the thrill – which I still love – even though I very much live in a 24/7 connected world online. Although most of my mail involves bills or magazines, there are some cards that make it’s way in my mailbox bringing Happy Birthday greetings or greetings of congratulations to my daughter’s. My mom is especially great about sending these cards, and even though she only lives 20 minutes away, she still holds on to the tradition of writing out personal notes that make these cards so special and memorable.
To encourage the art of sending and receiving of greeting cards Hallmark Cards is asking moms to think about the people in their life that and a message that they want to share. This can include words of thanks, encouragement, praise, or maybe even a simple “how are you?”
