National Send A Card To A Friend Day

We love the convenience of technology, but there’s something about getting a card in the mailbox that makes us smile!

On National Send A Card To A Friend Day, take a minute to drop a friend a handwritten note.  It shows that person that they are worth the time you spent crafting a thoughtful message or sharing a silly memory.

Dashing off an email is great – but a card in the mail will always be a more personal touch!
