Thinking of You Week coming this September

Posted on in Business News , Cycles News , Creative News

Thinking of You WeekThinking of you week is a special week that harnesses the emotional power of greeting cards to create a wave of love, caring and happiness.

Sending handwritten cards generates positive feelings and wellbeing. Science has shown that receiving a handwritten card creates a lovely warm positive boost.

The fact that you have spent the time to make or choose a card, write it, and send it makes the person receiving it feel far more special and cared for than receiving instant texts, emails or other social media messages.

Cards are displayed in the home and many are kept for years, providing a reminder of the person that has sent it and of your relationship with them.

Everyone is welcome to get involved in Thinking of You Week, writing and sending cards whether handcrafted or bought, and helping to promote sending cards as the best way to show how much we care about others.

There will be Thinking of You Events up and down the country, in schools, communities and local shops. Why not organise a card-writing event in your local area? We have a free toolkit  to help you get involved.

 

Thinking Of You Week is brought to you by the Greeting Card Association

The Greeting Card Association, GCA, is the trade body for the British greeting card community. An independent not-for-profit organisation owned by its members, it provides help, advice, support, specialist resources and membership services.

The GCA has over 450 members, comprising of publishers, retailers and specialist suppliers. It has been the voice of the greeting card industry since 1919. The GCA is a member of the Independent Retailers Confederation (IRC).
