A program designed to engage our community in providing notes of love, support, and encouragement to individuals hospitalized in psych wards with a goal that the individual receiving the card will find some comfort and motivation through their recovery.
TOTAL DONATED = 2,100 CARDS
Every encouragement card is a sign of hope for someone who feels hopeless and a touch of love for someone who feels unworthy.
Did you know that individuals hospitalized in psych wards are 100-200x more likely to die by suicide upon discharge? The time for support is NOW. We all need support, we all need kindness, and we all need each other. Together, let’s make an impact in the lives of others. Every life counts.
CREATE A CARD.
MAIL IT TO US.
MAKE A DIFFERENCE.
All cards MUST contain ONLY positive, supportive, and uplifting messages. As we cannot control who receives each card, please be sure to AVOID religious or gender specific messages. A few examples of appropriate messaging include:
- Get well soon
- You will get through this
- It is okay not to be okay
- Thinking of you
