Sending and receiving a greeting card creates a powerful connection. “It’s intimate – imagine how it feels to see the handwriting of someone you love, especially a child no matter how old they are”. psychologist Dr Lynda Shaw
During the Covid 19 crisis GCA members from across the industry are pulling together to support their local communities, donating cards to care homes and others as we encourage people to send a card to stay in touch with loved ones. Making cards with children is a great fun activity, and they love receiving them back. A greeting card is a great way of delivering a hug during lock-down.
