Do you have an elder in your life, a grandparent getting up there? Someone maybe hard of hearing and/or not particularly tech-fluent (as in not an emailer much) and feeling isolated?
  1. โ€ข
    Go buy a lovely blank card. ๐ŸŽ‘
    Maybe also some pretty stickers. ๐Ÿƒ๐Ÿ‚๐ŸŒฟ(Remember stickers? From when you were in preschool? Precursors to emoticons....)
  2. โ€ข
    Write a short, cheerful note of maybe 3 or 5 sentences. โœ’๏ธ
  3. โ€ข
    Put it in the envelope, seal, write the name and street address of your โœ‰๏ธelder on the front.
    Don't forget the zip code. Extra points for decorating envelope w the stickers.
  4. โ€ข
    Obtain and affix a postage stamp.
    Relics from the old days; available these days via ATM, fyi.
  5. โ€ข
    Mail. ๐Ÿ“ฎ๐Ÿ“ฌ
    Translation: push into mail slot at a post office or maybe you have a USPS outbox where you work. You'll figure this out.
  6. โ€ข
    It will be delivered to your elder in a couple of days. ๐Ÿ‘ You will have made someone feel very good. ๐Ÿ‘ด๐Ÿ‘ต
    All the old people I know still check their mailbox every day. Usually there's nothing in the pile but junk. This will stand out and sparkle up everything and make a difference. Trust me!
  7. โ€ข
    Go, you! ๐Ÿ‘ผ๐ŸŒฟ๐ŸŒบ๐ŸŒผ๐ŸŒท and in a couple of weeks? Repeat. Go, you again. xo
