Valentine’s Day can be a tough day for a lot of people, especially kids in the hospital or socially isolated seniors. Here’s a couple of EASY ways to spread some love and put smiles on their faces this Valentine’s Day!

Cards for kids!

You can can send virtual cards to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital for free on the pediatric hospital’s website. Virtual card creators get to pick from an assortment of colorful designs that feature artwork inspired by real St. Jude patients. They will be adding Valentine’s themed cards as we get closer to Valentine’s Day!

Cards for seniors!

AARP’s Wish of a Lifetime makes it easy to spread Valentine’s Day cheer to seniors. The organization has a national volunteer-driven Cupid Crew campaign that collects Valentine’s Day cards and delivers these heartfelt notes to seniors who are socially isolated. Pre-made Cupid Crew Valentine’s Day cards can be downloaded from the Wish of a Lifetime website. Once printed, you can personalize and drop off or mail the cards to local senior communities or someone you know personally. Of course, keep everyone safe and healthy by using socially distanced methods of delivery and be sure to mask, sanitize, and stay home if you aren’t feeling well or have been exposed to Covid.
